Good Leadership and Success Go Hand in Hand
A Note from Our Director

ESC Director Tom Mongeon (center) spoke with the World Affairs Council of NH about strategic planning and volunteering
In this election season, we have spent a long time considering who should lead our country. No matter what your political persuasion, I think we can all agree that strong, capable leadership is essential to the well-being of our government and our nation. This is equally true for nonprofits, which need good leadership to run their organizations  effectively and fulfill their mission.

This issue of the ESC newsletter focuses on nonprofit leadership. We examine why good leadership is important. We look at how the Seacoast Science Center has strengthened its operations through good leadership. And we introduce you to one of the many leaders in our organization who are helping nonprofits succeed. Please enjoy this issue and let us know if we can help your organization develop its leadership skills.

The Seacoast Science Center
is dedicated to helping people learn about the ocean. The Center is a vital part of New Hampshire's culture with over 80,000 visitors each year. Last year, the Center's leadership team embarked on a challenging top-to-bottom review of its operations. ESC consultants worked closely with the staff to develop a comprehensive business plan that is helping the Center continue its leadership role in the nonprofit community.
