Resist Cutting Your Ability to Make IncomeArticle by Karen Eber Davis, April 25, 2020
A newsletter this morning announced a board’s decision to cease operations, including laying off the staff of a local nonprofit. The blurb stood out because the first part of it announced the closing and the second the CEO’s response. The CEO outlined steps already underway to keep the organization going, including seeking stimulus funding.
- Work together:
1.) Boards ask your staff for their plan,
2.) CEOs don’t just do your plan, communicate it, and
3.) Do what you can to keep going now. This situation is temporary.
- Resist cutting your ability to make income.
- Most important, calm down and think.
