Sometimes the sins of the father are passed along… to me. After of decades of not speaking up, I have followed in my father’s footsteps.
I create change. I am hired to do it and get beat up, metaphorically, every time I do it. It is exhausting work. Sometimes I do it for free.
People hire me to create change, but they don’t want it. This stasis is what brings companies and non-profits down. If all you get is grant money from the government or agencies on a contract basis, you can never change for the better.
For companies, how can you do your jobs better and easier due to technology and management mindsets? For non-profits, many are still using old methodologies to do everything from management to tech to fund raising. You’re probably still using my recycled 386 and are on dial-up.
It’s the thinking that is flawed. We’ve always done it this way. That’s the way it’s done. They won’t let us do this. We like the little box we’ve let ourselves be placed in.
Jump, leap out of that box and think of new solutions that exemplify your organization’s mission and vision. If that mission and vision are no longer viable, sound a call for change.
Many folks just want to keep a job and hate to get up in the morning to go to it. YOU can make a difference. Think about how you’d like to be treated and treat others that way. If your job doesn’t let you do that, sound an alarm. Make a change. Make a difference in just one person’s life. Don’t be institutionalized. This is my motivational speech for the day. Cheers! Dee
