“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.” – Abigail Adams
I am a constant learner and wholeheartedly believe that we can never stop learning yet when we do, we stop growing personally and professionally. There are many ways to learn new things to broaden our knowledge as well as enhance our innate skillsets, yet I find, more times than not, people rarely make the commitment to enhance their potential.
There are several reasons for this…time, money, capacity, resources…the list goes on and on and this is no different for nonprofit professionals. Add to the mix the underlying culture that suggests investments in our nonprofit talent as optional; coupled with minimal budgets dedicated to increasing operational capacity readily leads to nonprofits forgoing training altogether for their staff.
