Random Thoughts on Life and Work

It’s Not Just A Calling – It’s A Job

For some reason, there are non-profit leaders who believe that the cause they serve is the reason you should work there. And because of the cause, the staff are there to serve, no matter what the conditions. Why? Shouldn’t the job itself be enjoyable? Is there a need to be a jerk and make working conditions difficult?

Why can’t you have your cake and eat it too? Be a leader that treats people right, manages with integrity, and recognizes personal shortcomings and you will have staff that will go to the ends of the earth for the cause – and for you. And along the way you might find your organization runs more efficiently and with less staff turnover.

Just a thought.
