Firstly, I hope that you are all doing well and coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. I am inspired by, and grateful for, the heroism of front line workers, hospital cleaners, transportation workers, grocery store staff, medical professionals, and those who have, in no uncertain terms, put themselves in harm’s way to serve the public and save lives. Incredible!!!
The COVID-19 pandemic, among other things, brings to mind, Bob Dylan’s iconic song, “The Times They Are A-Changin'”. The new landscape for non-profits will reward creativity and resilience—skills and traits that are at the heart of human evolution.
We are all in this together. Three traits keep coming to my mind: Creativity, Innovation, Resilience, and all our organizations will need a good dose of each in order to move forward.
