From messes to remarkable victories, boards who step up to boards who are missing in action; from bad days to the days you save someone’s life… we all have tales. My guest Darian Rodriguez Heyman collects these stories and spreads them, complete with practical advice and resources galore. His most recent adventure is the 2nd edition of Nonprofit 101: A Complete and Practical Guide for Leaders and Professionals that he edited along with his colleague Laila Brenner. I was honored to be one of the 55 voices he collected for the book. Darian is deeply committed to helping the helpers and he has done so using consensus-based leadership and deep listening. Today’s wide-ranging discussion encompasses his experience as a social entrepreneur, author, editor, and fundraiser on the biggest challenges and opportunities nonprofit leaders face today. Listen as he teases out resources on how to maximize impact in a tactical and practical way. Encapsulating disciplines of what needs to be done to run a successful nonprofit is Darian’s passion – he shares his insights on how leaders should face the changes in the political climate that affect resources, and partner with unlikely allies to reach across the aisle, effect change and send messages of hope.
