You probably feel a lot of tension in your work. You are ready to make a change, to get going, to try something. But members of the board, or committee, or staff want to do the tried and true.
I have heard volunteers say that it is their job to not sink the ship on their watch so they cling to the safe answer, to what has always been done. Some staff members may feel similarly. They feel they were hired to manage the database, for example, and that is what they want to do. Don’t move my cheese.
But you are ready to move the cheese. You are frustrated that you have a solution to try and it is not being tried.
So do you let the momentum of doing what we have always done take over, or are you going to figure out how to make that change?
