Nonprofit organizations need their professionals to perform at peak levels, inspire others, maintain relationships with community members, and achieve “reach goals.”
Grueling hours, unrealistic expectations, and lack of operational supports lead to high burnout and churn among those working in the nonprofit world.
The good news is that there is a lot that nonprofit leaders can do to better support their employees. And, there’s plenty that nonprofit professionals, themselves, can do to maintain their own well-being, resilience, and happiness on the job.
