You run a small but very impactful not-for-profit, community-based organisation, or social enterprise. You are quite possibly the founder, or if not, you bring that kind of passion to your job.
You are VERY busy, not only with the nitty-gritty tasks of running your organisation, but with the stressful responsibility of making sure there are resources to do so. You are always thinking about the next grant application, the next partnership opportunity…
And then there is your vision: you want to grow and scale because you believe in the mission. But you ALSO have the intention of improving your work life balance, and making things a little less uncertain and chaotic. You want to be able to rely on other people more.
You go through the motions, but you do not have the time, and the mental and emotional space, to set really clear goals, and develop the strategies and tools to achieve them. You might have a strategy document that you prepared for the board with the help of some fancy business consultants, but your staff tell you it’s not relevant anymore: the situation has already changed! That is of course if the business consultant ever really “got” you in the first place.
If this sounds familiar, I’m here to help!
