Do the Best You Can With What You Got

Nearly 20 years ago I met Judy Bright for lunch at Darryl’s on Hillsborough Street. A mutual friend suggested that we connect. Other than the fact that she worked at the YMCA, I knew nothing about her.

Thoughts on Leadership Transition

I recently had the opportunity to attend the 2018 Conference for North Carolina’s Nonprofits, where our very own Bert Armstrong facilitated a discussion with panelists Pilar Rocha-Goldberg (CEO of El Centro Hispano), Charrise Hart (CEO of YWCA of the Lower Cape Fear), and Barrett Joyner (former SAS executive turned now-retired Director of Development of The Healing Place). The session panelists addressed diversity and inclusion, succession planning, staff development, and leadership transition, among other topics.

Do You Know Where You Are Going?

In Stephen Covey’s book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, Covey suggests that the second most significant habit to develop is “Begin With the End in Mind”. In creating highly effective nonprofits, knowing the end game is a key component to success.Sound leadership requires a well-defined acceptance of where an organization is but equally important, clarity about the future. Waiting for the future to unfold will lead you down a path but it is far better to move confidently with clear direction by controlling outcomes guided by planning and strategy.

“55 Saves Lives”

Last Saturday was my birthday! Fifty-five is a mid-decade milestone, and so I’m grateful to family and friends who offered the right balance of well-wishing and celebration with quips about gray hair, more cautious driving, or the aches and pains I feel getting out of bed every morning. My age also means I remember the 1970’s when the U.S. set a national speed limit of fifty-five to encourage less fuel consumption and safer travel. It came with a public service announcement campaign with the tagline “55 Saves Lives”.
