Three really great blog reads.
- Increase our visibility! Build community awareness of our greatness! (From Tom Ahern’s personal blog.)
- Applying psychology to fundraising (From The Agitator)
- Fundraising change is like climate change (From The Agitator)
Read. Learn. Share with staff colleagues, bosses, and boards.
Explain why. Help staff, bosses, and boards understand and accept and own and focus on the right stuff.
That’s your job. To use the right stuff from the right people. Explain the why. Help all those others accept and own and focus on the right stuff, not the wrong stuff.
This takes time. And I’m not talking weeks or months!
And if you can’t get this done… Look in the mirror first. Maybe you’re the problem. But maybe you’re not the problem. Maybe they’re the problem.
Find an ally (or two) to help you help them get it.
And if that doesn’t work…. Look for another job. You deserve better.
