    3 Courageous Infrastructure Shifts That Will Ensure Your Sustainable Impact

    3 Courageous Infrastructure Shifts That Will Ensure Your Sustainable Impact

    In this week’s episode, I’m talking about 3 courageous infrastructure shifts to make if you want to set yourself up for sustainable impact in 2023.

     I say “courageous” because these small changes can require real bravery when put into practice. They can require investing in a vision - and leaning into practices - that are completely new and different from your current reality. But I make the argument that they’re incredibly powerful, and can - will! - change the course of the direction of your organization.
    In this episode, you will learn: 
    Three acts of “bravery” that can deeply impact your organization How to step boldly into an uncertain future, and straddle the line between what is and what’s possible The importance of having real capacity to fuel your mission The relationship between creativity and stillness

New ED in training

This podcast has been super insightful for me! I am building a non profit focused on equity, diversity and inclusion. Incubating small business in an underserved community has been a challenge but through this podcast I have learned some valuable lessons and been motivated through my daily struggles!

Brilliant podcast! Rich and valuable content every episode!

Brooke is an incredible host, and I love how thorough she is when it comes to looking at very possible angle of a dilemma that nonprofit leaders face, and every imaginable possibility to solve those issues to help the organization THRIVE! The fact that her heartbeat is to help mission driven leaders not only launch and scale, but then on top of that, equips them with the leadership tools they need really says it all. Listen to this show!
