“One of the reasons people stop learning is that they become less and less willing to risk failure. We pay a heavy price for our fear of failure. A prime function of a leader is to keep hope alive.”

-John Gardner 

Non-profit organisations (NFP) are tasked with some of the most challenging work in society today. With approximately 56,000 non-profits in Australia today, there is an estimated 4% growth to the sector each year. Non-profits, like their private sector counterparts, require diversification of revenue and strategic alignment of resources in order to remain competitive and relevant in the marketplace.  

Through extensive service to large international charities as well as grassroots, community organisations, the greatest source of anxiety for NFP leaders centres around one of three critical issues:

1. Leaders lack the resources they require to meet demand

2. Teams underperform 

3. There's a relentless expectation 'to do more with less'
