This chapter examines the role of leadership in formulating and then executing the mission and strategy of a nonprofit organization. In particular, these tasks are associated with the functional approach to leadership and the basic functions of direction, motivation, and design. The functional approach to leadership assumes that leadership cannot be disaggregated to atomistic behaviors, but rather that it is best defined in terms of the functions that must be fulfilled if the organization is to survive and thrive. Examples of how leaders fulfill the basic functions of direction, motivation, and design, drawn from both the nonprofit and for-profit world, are presented.

Keywords:   leadership, mission, strategy, execution, nonprofit organization, direction, motivation, design
