What does it mean to have a concentration in Leadership Development in Social Services (LDSS) with a MSW?
I am very passionate about my career in social work. I love learning about the field and discovering the different roles social workers can have. However, I often think people do not understand what it means to have a MSW with a concentration in LDSS. Typically, social work is thought to be one-on-one therapy, but that’s not always the case. For this reason, I would like to share some of the information I am learning in my LDSS courses. Below are some of the topics my LDSS class is learning about in our Nonprofit Organizations (SOWK 713) class.
- Governing Executive Board Members
- Executive Leadership
- Resource Development
- Financial Management
- Nonprofit Financial Crisis
- Managing Staff-Paid and Unpaid
- Strategic Planning
Below is an article my professor, Dr. Tom Tresser, gave our class in regards to budgeting for non-profits. Create A Budget That Works for You (Rotondi, 1997).
