YNPN Ottawa Reading Corner
“Interested in learning more about YNPN National? Check out this recent article in the US’ Nonprofit Times in which YNPN’s Executive Director Jamie Smith is interviewed”
“What Smith has found is that members generally join to access a particular training but stay as a means of remaining connected with a network of peers tackling the same challenges. She noted that the recent focus on a nonprofit leadership gap, caused by Baby Boomers preparing for retirement, has emphasized a need for soft skills such as leadership and working with people. While those talents are needed, YNPN members have indicated that such trainings are easier and less costly to come by than hard skills such as managing organizational finances. Organizations tend to limit the exposure mid-level employees get to such trainings, but often require such skills in order to move up to senior roles.”
"Unpacking the systemic issues of nonprofit evaluation" by Ontario Nonprofit Network
“In 2015, ONN took on a project to look at the systemic issues of evaluation in Ontario’s nonprofit sector and design potential solutions to help us get to more useful evaluation. This framing led to the development of our Sector Driven Evaluation Strategy work, which to date now includes a resource treasure chest designed to help identify pain points experienced by nonprofits, and move forward with your stakeholders to create an evaluation process that can work better for your organization.”
"Six tips for commanding the meeting environment”
“Strengthening your meetings with this level of discipline will not only improve the quality of meetings, but also your and your team's attitude towards them. Enforcing the time and conducting boundaries around them will give you a greater toe hold to increase high performance throughout your company. These healthy boundaries and discipline breed autonomy, and enable greater delegation, all of which increase your capabilities as a team.” Read more here.
It always seems impossible until it's done.
