A donor, a board member, or a volunteer approaches you with what they believe is an amazing idea on how to raise more funds...or an idea for a new program or new direction the organization should take.
What if it is a really good idea? Even more challenging, what if it is a terrible idea?
On today's episode, Tim and Nathan explore how to respond as an Executive Director to unsolicited advice from key stakeholders of your organization. Sharing from their own experiences, they provide tips to guide you in your responses...that also will help you keep your job!
