Tribal Wisdom

Your programs….. your unique voice, talent, vision. Its what sets you apart from the crowd and it is the very thing that will set you  apart from other organizations.

They are your body of work. Your life force.  And they get stronger and do more good once you tap into Your Tribal Wisdom.

Its the  beginning  of a conversation with you  and your people Engagement alone  is no longer enough.  Its engagement and collaboration. You share, comment, debate, discuss. You connect.

 You hear one another. Everyday you earn their trust.  Everyday.

They are documented, organized and packaged  so you can do good better and have a greater impact for the families you support and serve. This comes from  true passion. Your need to educate, leverage and share the how and why.

You need to present them in the exact way that your volunteers and donors want to see them. In a way that will transform.

You need to stay relevant.

Its the Soul of a movement.

There is no magic dust to sprinkle. Its all hard work. All steak and for some of you– very little sizzle.

And that’s OK.

Your programs are more than hyped up advertisement campaigns.They are your business. The business of service, support, inspiration and advocacy. The vehicle that you show your passion. The stories that you share

Share more. Sample generously.  Adapt to changing circumstance. Offer everyone the opportunity to participate. Let as many people experience your passion first hand, word of mouth is integral to your success— create an experience that encourages loyalty and leverages skills.

Be bold.

Be agile.

Attention and recognition will come.
