Whether you’re starting an organization or working to take it to the next level, many of the same principles and processes apply including the need for:
Organizational Evolution & Revenue Diversification
Strategic Partnerships & Community Engagement
Collaborative Leadership & Young Talent Mentoring
Project Innovation & Strategic Planning
In achieving the next level it is often the times of transition that offer the opportunity to assess the organization and lay the basis for creating a new chapter. Experience has taught that change needs to be strategic, based on facts, diverse perspectives and with specific goals and objectives that are implementable and measurable in mind.
The business side of a non-profit and the frequently untapped opportunities to diversity the funding sources are a necessary and intriguing part of organizational evolution. Whether providing some executive coaching or developing the business plan for a new service, product or fundraising strategy, the opportunity to increase revenues and program-related income energizes everyone involved.
An essential role of a leader or change agent is not only developing an engaged team but also maintaining it throughout. Inclusivity strengthens both the process and the outcomes.
“Ruth has the courage to tackle difficult community problems. She also has the ability to bring diverse groups of people together to effectively solve those problems.” -- Gale Castillo, President (retired), Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce
