The Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community is a private community of nonprofit thought leaders, leader practitioners, forward-looking funders, policymakers, and instigators who believe that mission and performance are inextricably linked.
We imagine a social sector in which all nonprofits with the will to achieve greater impact have the strength and support to do so.
We share the focus and purpose to inspire, support, and convince nonprofit and public sector leaders (and their stakeholders) to build great organizations for greater societal impact and to increase the expectation and adoption of high performance as the path to that end.
Social and public sector leaders—practitioners, funders, policymakers, and instigators—have come together as a community to bring their depth of knowledge and experience, passion for inspiring others, and a commitment to increasing adoption of high performance in the field; pursue our shared purpose; and tap our collective IQ. In this trusted place, members value and protect the credibility of the community as a whole.
Mission and performance are inextricably linked. High performance is an essential prerequisite to deliver meaningful and lasting results for the people and causes we serve, and ensure a more just and sustainable world.
High performance is a long, obstacle-filled journey. Direction and continuous improvement are more important than distance.
Power of Community
Changing minds and attitudes toward high performance starts with the doers and believers—and expands to those who are pre-disposed or open.
Trusted relationships are the essential connective tissue of community.
How we engage is as important as what we produce—we intentionally seek diverse perspectives and expertise and value an open and transparent environment, in which we share successes, challenges, and obstacles with candor.
We respect present and past leaders who have worked tirelessly to advance high performance within their organizations and throughout the social and public sectors; we seek collaboration, not competition.
