A really good article on the nonprofit leadership challenge from CityLimits.org
The article covers the basic information about boomer retirement (and its skeptics) and then discusses a survey showing that many younger nonprofit managers don't necessarily want to move up.
This is no surprise to me: it confirms what I'm hearing everywhere.
"Why would I want her/his job?" asks a 20 something manager referring to the ED. "I see how they have no life at all."
Can't blame them:
Boomer refrain: "Live to Work!"
GenX and Gen@ refrain: "Work to Live!"
I think the younger generations have it right.....
