The Fundraiser’s Number One Challenge: The Boss

No Comments

Christiana Stergiou and Jeff Brooks, Fundraisingologists at Moceanic, discuss recent polling where professional fundraisers overwhelmingly cited interference from bosses — executive directors, presidents, board members, and other authorities — to be the most significant challenge they face in their work.

We also discussed ways to solve the problem, or at least work around it — and when it’s time to leave an organization that has this problem.

Please share your thoughts by leaving your reply below. We’d love to learn from your experience.
