Wants, Needs and Deliverables

A question was posed recently about what nonprofit Board members need or won't do without. There are so many appropriate responses to such a question. As I reflected upon the key points I might share, it become evident that people are people who have wants of organizations (or the people leading/staffing them).

Consider the following in light of shaping a nonprofit Board members' experience or that of a volunteer, a coworker or someone for whom you have management responsibility ... Give to others, demand for self and deliver among colleagues:
  • Clarity of role, responsibilities and expectations.
  • Context on issues and impacts.
  • Efficient use of time.
  • Effective leveraging of talents.
So, now, dig deep and think about what you can do to deliver on the wants & needs of any person who gives of themselves to advance an organization's intent.
