Link: Collaborations and Partnerships: My Non-profit Journey (Sofia Crisp)
“Each new stage of a non-profit organization’s growth requires, I feel, a strategic re-channeling of the organization’s energy.

I’ve seen too many accomplished, visionary leaders taken ‘out of the game’ by underestimating the virtue of collaboration as they grow.
