I’m acting as if it is so, even though it ain’t so,

in order for it to be so”.

Delman Coates, Ph.D.

In order to grow, in order to (hopefully) succeed, a Non-profit Leader needs to believe – in their self and their organization’s goal-driven plans. Those who wholeheartedly BELIEVE tend to thrive. Those who, on the other hand, are fervent Doubters are likely destined to flounder, not flourish. It’s that simple folks! Even with a great Mission and rock-solid resources (financial & human), a lackluster Executive Director who isn’t a believer is not likely to be an effectual Achiever either.

  • The ‘better outcomes‘ they seek may never come to be. The mission of the non-profit they lead may remain unaccomplished.
  • Passion, however deep it is, can not be allowed to be dampened by doubt. Doubt should be starved, not fed.

I’m acting as if it is so, even though it ain’t so, in order for it to be so”.
