Developing leaders in the nonprofit sector: Evaluating the influence of executive leadership training on collaboration
The overall purpose of this research is to describe characteristics of collaborative leadership and to evaluate a training program designed to improve the collaboration skills of non-profit executive leaders. This study includes three manuscripts written for journal submission that describe the literature and evaluation of collaborative leadership in practice. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the background, public health significance, and research aims related to the research topic. Chapter 2 (Manuscript 1) systematically reviews the current literature and describes the gaps that exist in describing and evaluating collaborative leadership training programs; this chapter addresses aim 1. Chapter 3 (Manuscript 2) describes a mixed methods approach to evaluating a training program. Chapter 4 (Manuscript 3) evaluates the influence of an executive leadership training toward collaboration as measured on participants in a training group. Chapter 4 addresses aims 2, 3, and 4. Chapter 5 presents the integration of research findings, study limitations, and suggestions for future research. Chapter 5 also discusses the findings for aim 5. Lastly, the appendices provide supportive literature including Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) documents and data collection instruments.^
