Are you READY for change?
Strengthening your organization to become capable of really effecting social change is an exciting and challenging process. Your ability to make change is directly related to your level of readiness. Before you begin the process, it is important to ensure that you have the capacity in place to maximize your potential.
Here are some questions to consider as you assess your readiness:
- Is your Executive Board fully committed to embarking on this change process?
- Do you have an Executive Director and Senior Staff team that is ready to deal with the change process?
- Do you have someone within your organization who is able to play a leadership role in this effort and to ensure that it keeps moving in a timely and efficient manner?
- Is your organization committed to sharing the decision-making process with community partners?
- Is the organization economically viable? Do you have the resources or do you have the capacity to raise the resources you need to succeed?
- Do you have the organizational discipline necessary to keep efforts on track and proceeding smoothly?
- Most importantly, is everyone in your organization, from leadership to staff members, on board with this effort? Is there an overall commitment to change?
