Takeaways:

  • Personalize experiences for your stakeholders, from board members to employees. Understand their preferences, respond according to their unique needs, and involve them in the activities that suit them best. This will enable better engagement and align their efforts with your organization's mission.
  • Promote a culture of listening within your organization. Allow space and time for staff members to voice their thoughts, ideas, and concerns openly.  This can foster a more inclusive, appreciated, and engaged team.
  • Embrace opportunities to learn from external trends, technologies, and demographic changes. It is critical to understand the specific needs of Millennials and Gen Z and how they shape the future of culture and civic engagement.
  • Personal touches, such as handwritten notes, phone calls, and dedicated one-on-one time, can significantly impact personal and professional relationships. These small personal touches often carry more weight, even in an increasingly digital world.
  • As a leader, develop and trust your instincts. Don't dismiss your gut feelings, especially when they warn you about potential issues or guide you in making decisions.
