In this keynote address, Ms. Zeman will focus on The Performance Imperative (PI), a framework that was developed by the Leap Ambassadors Community to help faith-based and secular nonprofits perform at a level worthy of their calling and the people they serve.

She will challenge the audience to ask themselves what it would take to look in the mirror and know that their organization is making a meaningful, enduring difference – beyond what would have happened if it had never existed. She will describe a common definition of “high performance,” one that was developed by dozens of nonprofit leaders from across the country, and will detail the seven organizational pillars that can help nonprofit organizations progress on their journey toward high performance.

Ms. Zeman will introduce the audience to the concept of high performance, and challenge them to use the PI as a way to guide and bear witness to their journey to high performance as a means to achieve better outcomes for the people they serve, and to demonstrate their effectiveness to their funders.
