From the Desk of Dr. Lydia
The Organizational Poverty Series was created as a result of Dr. Lydia's first-hand experience and proprietary research as an Employee, Board Member, and Consultant, in multiple nonprofit settings. She found that many agencies, though mission-driven and well-intentioned, suffered from a chronic lack of: resources; satisfied staff and volunteers; and proven systems for sustainable service delivery.
From this series, nonprofit leaders will be able to:
Accurately diagnose org challenges they may be facing
Learn proven strategies to maximize both tangible and intangible resources
Gain tools to increase staff and volunteer confidence, performance, and retention.
Expand agency presence and impact through strategic collaboration
Are you ready to take your agency from Poverty to Abundance, once and for all??

How to Collaborate
Impactful collaborations don’t just happen by chance, or because we think it’s a good idea.
With double the brainpower, double the efforts, and double the resources, it is critical that these energies be directed toward the achievement of the joint vision.
When To Get Help
Poor internal or external communication systems are a threat within an individual organization but are downright deadly to a joint venture.
