Developing a proposal mindset, the concept of presenting a proposal when seeking a decision, can be key to getting to yes more often, more collaboratively and more efficiently. Using a proposal simplifies and speeds up decision-making, and reduces time spent by others analyzing and assessing the implications and potential solutions of an issue.
Nonprofit survival in these unprecedented times depends more than ever on their leaders being willing to listen, evolve and respond. JBL Strategies invited Laura Elmore, seasoned executive director and chair of One Voice Central Texas, to share her perspective on what nonprofit leaders need to be focusing on now.
After the two+ years of exceptional circumstances challenging nonprofits, deciding how to move forward can be overwhelming. JBL Strategies invited David C. Smith, CEO of United Way for Greater Austin, to share his perspective on trends for nonprofit survival in 2022, highlighting people, leadership and uniting as key.
