Anyone that knows me is probably chuckling right now that I am writing a post titled painting a picture. Lucky for you, I’m not talking about a real picture. I don’t have an ounce of artistic skill in my body.
Like I said in my last post, shifting to become a relationship mindset organization starts with believing. Your organization has to believe that relationships will achieve the mission. Your organization has to believe that money is not the only way to achieve the mission. After you believe, two important steps come next.
- Your organization has to look at the big picture and recognize what various people can offer toward achieving the mission. Donors are not the only people who matter.
- Your organization has to engage people to achieve the mission.
