Lessons From The Field: What’s Working in Small Shop Nonprofit Leadership & Growth in 2023

In this week’s episode, I’m kicking off my new year series about setting intentions as a way to guide your leadership and growth in the new year. Goals are important, but I argue that intentions are often overlooked and in some ways more foundational. 

While your goals are a commitment to an outcome, your intentions are a commitment to a process – they are an orientation to your work: How you want to approach your leadership, actions, and decisions. 

One of the most important intentions you can set is to adopt a relationship orientation. 

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • What it means to set powerful intentions for your organization, 
  • The centrality of relationships and network expansion in fueling your growth, 
  • Two strategies for continually expanding your organizational relationships.
