Australia is home to a wealth of incredible social purpose organisations: not for profits, visionary founders, social entrepreneurs, and social purpose businesses. Not to mention passionate and talented staff, volunteers and donors.
What is soul-destroying is dysfunction and unfulfilled potential. The tough contexts most organisations work in means there is often a painful gap between what they could be and their lived realities: Leaders wrestle with escalating complexity. Teams don’t hit their strides. Boards and Executives are out of alignment. Staff feel burn-out. At its worst toxic cultures take hold. Our missions and our people deserve us to fulfil our individual and collective potential.
