Is your nonprofit looking to make some changes, but is not sure where to start? There are many great resolutions that could be beneficial for your company in 2020. Let’s take a look at 4 possible resolutions you may want to consider below:
What better way to kick-off the new year than spicing up your website? It is easy to push aside the aesthetic of your website design for months or even years, but do not forget the importance of a refresh. Individuals seeking out your website are looking for an understanding of your work and expertise. If an outsider sees a functional and clean website with a hint of personality, visitors may be more intrigued to learn more about your nonprofit.
Create Board Diversity
Welcome diversity onto your team! You may notice your board getting stuck in a rut. Seeing or talking to the same faces each day can result in different work performance. Reaching out to the people you serve or meeting others at networking events may assist your company towards new ideas and creativity! There’s nothing wrong with going outside of the box to help your nonprofit prosper.
Implement a Mentorship Program
It is common to have an age-range throughout your company. Differences in age and experience do not have to result in poor collaboration. Consider a mentorship program where team members have the chance to work with people in other areas of expertise or age groups – this allows for diverse skillsets to effectively be used together. New teams and groups will help your co-workers bounce ideas and strategies off one another to create the best outcome possible.
Set Obtainable Goals
Whether it is setting goals in our personal or professional lives, we have all experienced certain ambitions that tend to dwindle off. That is why it is so important to make goals that are obtainable! Even if you have a large goal you hope to achieve by the end of the year, it may be important to set small goals prior to help your company’s goal feel reachable. No matter how big or small your goal is, be sure that your workers are on the same page to promote successful collaboration.
