How to manage relationships and work collaboratively on a day-to-day basis…
A previous participant on our “Make a Wave” incubator for Women Social Entrepreneurs, said: “I am afraid that having external supporters might divert my attention, or dilute our strategy” …
Sometimes getting help to work on the strategy is great, however you might need more help about wealth creation, or how to lobby or influence local authorities, for instance. Be specific about the help you need, you are more likely to make progress.
Be honest about not knowing what you don’t know.
When you fundraise, you are more likely to get attention from funders or investors if you can clearly state: “I need specific support to help me going from a to b”. This is the base of your collaboration with your funder.
Nb: If you are a volunteer, a mentor or an advisor to another organisation, the tips above are also valid.
