Nonprofit organizations need leaders who possess traits that are not unlike leaders in the for-profit sector--especially the ability to leverage people, projects, and finances. Nonprofit organizations also need leaders with the expertise to work according to the regulations and opportunities specific to nonprofit ventures.
