Life, Leadership and the working world

This space will include irregular postings on life, leadership and management, from both the work world and life at home, with a particular focus on the for-profit and charitable worlds.  My plan is to explore both my own insights and experiences, and engage readers.  I'm not a professional writer, so my plan is to be short, honest and offer my observations for comment and conversation.  Topics will include:
  • Myths about the transition from for-profit to charity work
  • Truths about the transition from for-profit to charity work
  • Why ties?
  • Networking
  • Asking for donations
  • Diversity: thought as the final frontier
  • Leadership and Management
  • Different strokes for different folks
  • Fundraisers versus Sales people
  • Which skills transfer: Sales people to Fundraisers
  • NIMBY: the unspoken Charitable barrier
  • What happened to Community?
  • The Charitable sector: Sustainable?
  • For profit models in the Charitable world - an imperfect fit
  • Web 2.0 for fundraising: bluster or real winds of change?
  • What advocacy really means
I look forward to your thoughts on further topics and our conversations...
