“Here’s the potential situation in your nonprofit. You have tensions at the board level. As the CEO, you are blaming internal factions. Or, you have a high turnover of staff. You blame a lack of loyalty and incompetence. Your fundraising revenue is stagnant or decreasing and you blame the fundraisers. No one seems to know who you are and you blame the marketing people. See where I’m going with this? Look in the mirror. It’s not them. It’s you. It all starts with you.
If you serve on a board or are the CEO of an organization, here’s how to deal with it head-on. It’s the same advice I gave to the CEO who complained about everyone else but himself as to the troubles his nonprofit was having at the present time. Get a coach.” By Wayne Elsey, July 16, 2015, Author of “The Rise and Fail of Charities In the 21st Century: How The Nonprofit World Is Changing And What You Can Do To Be Ready”
