“Social enterprise describes any non-profit, for-profit or hybrid corporate form that utilizes market-based strategies to advance a social mission.”
— Social Enterprise Alliance
A social entrepreneur has a special gift, and calling, to combine business acumen with altruistic motivation for the benefit of humanity. This is not easy, and can create a unique set of challenges not readily encountered in the business world. This is where leadership support can be indispensable.
Turning “success into significance” is challenging. The demands on leadership in social enterprise can be considerable, with resources often at a premium. Leadership support through Individual Coaching or Team Development provides highly leveraged structures that have a significant impact on advancing the mission of an organization or cause while optimizing resources.
