Consider how you express yourself. Do you do so in a manner that truly articulates your values, clearly tells your story and richly demonstrates your outcomes? If not, how is anyone else supposed to understand or value you?
Consider the ease with which you allow your supporters/constituents to give voice to their yearnings and desires. People don’t tend to stay in relationships that are one-way or even lopsided. They also will be disinclined to stay in relationships that are hard work. Unless you engage in an accessible, meaningful dialogue, and truly listen, how will you develop sustained, flowing relationships with supporters who will invest and re-invest in your mission?
