Trends in Nonprofit Annual Report Formats | Nonprofit Marketing Guide | Nonprofit Management | Scoop.it

A quarter of the nonprofits didn't do an annual report at all the previous year, but the majority, 54%, had created a printed report that was longer than four pages. I didn't ask how much longer, but in the webinar chat, several nonprofits said their reports were 10 or 20 pages or even longer. 15% had created a short printed version and 6% had created an online-only version of a PDF or PowerPoint presentation. None had used an online version like a video or website page

ABCs of Fundraising: Waste Not those Mail Solicitations

In this era of social media, is anyone still using “snail mail” to solicit donations? Short answer – yes they are! Although not as prevalent as it used to be, real mail, on paper, delivered to the home of a donor or prospective donor remains a valid solicitation technique.

Cognitive Biases in Times of Uncertainty--Telling Ourselves A New Story

Cognitive Biases in Times of Uncertainty--Telling Ourselves A New Story | Nonprofit Management | Scoop.it
We live in a world of increasing pressure and uncertainty, driven in large part by digital technology infrastructures.

 

Author John Hagel goes on to explain a vicious business mindset we face today that constricts our opportunities and keeps us either stuck, or trending downward.

 

There are several pieces contributing to this limiting cycle and the narrative we tell ourselves, and each other, is a HUGE part of the problem

 

Hagel documents the threat-based narrative we are surrounded by and its consequences for our businesses (and political life):

  1. Protectionism
  2. Polarization
  3. Short term focus
  4. Magnified risk while sacrificing potential rewards
  5. Urgent reactionism
  6. Uniformity versus innovation
  7. Minimal trust

 

This is not what we want for 2012. As writer Salman Rushdie says, "Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts."

 

In other words, if you want different results, change the story you are telling yourself.

 

Hagel brilliantly lays out the mindset problem and narrative we face today, and offers us an alternative.  The alternative starts with sharing a new narrative, and then supporting structures to make it real.

 

Read this article.  Shift the story. Add reinforcing structures to your business. You can do this in your own life and business -- you don't have to wait for some powers-t0-be to take action first. 

 

In this case, it is all about you!
