In growing a non-profit, a leader will encounter ‘the good, the bad, and the ugly’. As long as they learn from challenges along the way, they’ll be well-positioned for better outcomes in the future. In an effort to make the journey of others better, Sofia S Crisp took time, in the last 2 posts, to openly share some of her own non-profit journey challenges. Her other purpose, in telling her story here, was making it clear that her organization “prevailed over every challenge it faced”. It emerged as ‘a stronger organization’ she strongly feels. She firmly believes that others can also overcome their challenges. Ironically, the seeds of a non-profit leader’s future successes often lie in the challenges they’ve overcome.
In this Series, My Non-profit Journey: What I Wish I Knew When I Started, eight leadership wishes shared by Sofia Crisp with Your Outcomes Well will be explored. In the last two posts we explored her second wish (Challenges I’ve Faced)
