I have a question for you.


Why do you think it is that so many nonprofit boards fall down on one of their biggest single responsibilities they have as board members? The annual performance review of their Executive Director.


You know I’m right. I see clients all the time, and I’ll ask, “When did you last have your performance review?” To read more about this subject........... Click Here

Committees are valuable vehicles used to accomplish much in a non-profit organization. They are the units that take on specific and detailed work when the task is too complex and time consuming to handle in meetings of the entire board, thus increasing overall efficiency. What’s more, committees provide opportunities for the organization to foster and develop talent to keep the leadership pipeline full. To read more on this issue......... Click Here

From self-driving cars to artificial intelligence, we live in a period marked by rapid innovation and change. Now couple the accelerating pace of change with increasing pressures from funders to spend fewer dollars on overhead, and the fact becomes clear: we need to find new ways of doing things! 

I wasn’t born an efficiency expert. When I was growing up in northern Minnesota, I didn’t see examples of organizational efficiency models, and I had never heard of lean concepts. But, having spent most of my career in manufacturing environments, I became aware of these concepts even before lean became the commonly used terminology. To read more about Lean concepts..........

If the words branding, marketing, or publicity make you want to run and hide, you are not alone. Every single day, nonprofit leaders struggle with how to get more recognition for their organizations—they run away from marketing their organization.


Marketing is simply the set of activities nonprofit organizations use for creating, communicating, delivering, and amplifying their missions. It’s crucial to ensure your most important stakeholders know who you are and are excited to support you. To read more about this subject............ Click Here

Imagine this: You are leading your weekly team meeting, and you have just five minutes left to galvanize people around a critical decision that will affect many people. After quickly summarizing the discussion, you say that you think all are agreed and check if there are any objections. Hearing none, you close the meeting, feeling relief that the decision has finally been made.


You have a nagging feeling that not everyone is on board. You seek out a trusted team member, who confesses that many team members are skeptical about the wisdom of this decision. To read more on this subject............ Click Here
