Non-profit Leadership


“No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.”

Andrew Carnegie

Lead: Delegate, Motivate, and Appreciate

“For myself, I can say that I am ‘coachable’.  I am not afraid to say I don’t know something.  I’m willing to find the person, or people, who do have the knowledge or expertise required.  You might call this an ‘I don’t know now’ mindset.  To put it simply, as a situation presents itself I learn from others I’ve sought out”.

As Executive Director and Founder of Housing Consultants Group, Crisp demonstrates this Carnegie quote. Read More Leadership Keys: Lone Rangers Stumble

Leadership Keys

 ”Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”

John F. Kennedy


As I developed a clearer sense of the gifted person whose words and wisdom will be shared in this new Series, Toni Jackson, the famous words of Pres. Kennedy (above) and a well-known Bible scripture came to mind.  The scripture:

  • The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16b).

As a Christian prays, to connect with God, a cheerful volunteer donates their time to connect with their community.  Jackson is a proud Christian woman who has generously volunteered throughout her life – to support a wide range of organizations and community causes.

A Housing Specialist for the City of High Point (NC), she has volunteered countless hours – and managed volunteers too.  However, if you look only at Jackson’s paid employment, you’re missing out on a lot of what has allowed the married mother of two to make her mark.

  • During her life she’s volunteered in the areas of housing, financial capability, developmental disabilities advocacy, & public ministry.

A Series on Your Outcomes Well featuring Toni Jackson begins today.

In the biography at the bottom of this Series-launching post, her career, volunteer work, awards, and family are described.
