Building Future Leaders Diagnostic Survey



This diagnostic survey presents 31 statements that relate to five core processes of leadership development and succession planning. Its purpose is to help nonprofit organizations better understand the processes they are strong in and those that might need improvement in helping develop their future leaders.
Are you doing what you can to develop your organization’s
next generation of leaders?

According to a Bridgespan Group survey of more than 150 nonprofit leadership teams, leadership development and succession planning for senior leader positions is the single greatest organizational weakness nonprofits face. To help address this challenge, we have developed a free diagnostic survey to help leaders understand where their organizations are strong – and what can be improved.

Take the survey, receive a report to see how your organization compares to others, and jumpstart your thinking on what successful leadership development could look like in your organization.

This survey is part of the Introduction to the Nonprofit Leadership Development Toolkit.
  • "This has been a valuable exercise in itself. Our leadership development has been informal til now... I am about to change that."
  • "The survey questions have been excellent and have motivated me to start thinking of how we can take an intentional and systematic approach to leadership development."
  • "It made me think about the importance of developing leaders for the future. "
