At The Management Center, we work with talented, passionate nonprofit leaders who are experts in their fields, excel as individual performers, and now must learn how to get things done through others, rather than simply on their own. In other words, they must learn how to manage.
Our mission is to instill the management practices that make it easier for these nonprofit leaders, and their organizations, to get outstanding results in pursuit of their missions. We do this by providing direct assistance and coaching to client organizations, and by offering publications and training to the broader field. Our aim is to see more strong, effective nonprofits truly changing the world.
Founded in 2006, we have worked closely with more than 100 client organizations, focusing in particular on progressive organizations working for social change, and have also trained thousands of individual leaders.
The Management Center is deeply saddened by the passing of our founder, board chair, and spiritual guide, Peter B. Lewis, on November 23, 2013. In the years ahead, we will carry forward his vision of helping the most talented social justice leaders in America manage their organizations with rigor, wisdom, and decency.
