In this week's episode I share my top three takeaways from this year's Virginia Commission for the Arts (VCA) conference called ArtWorks. Those takeaways are: There is no greater affirmation of freedom of expression than public funding for the arts. Donors give based on aspiration, even if it's not achievable. Small nonprofits have a lot of advanta…

I've been obsessed over the past couple of weeks with Malcolm Gladwell's book, "Talking to Strangers." In processing through the information I started to think about loneliness and mental health--especially for those of us working in nonprofit and mission-driven leadership. This provided the context for an interview with Dennis Gillan. Dennis and I…

I talk about how I learned these lessons (sometimes the hard way) and how they might apply to your situation as a mission-driven leader or nonprofit dire…
 
Did you set goals for yourself at the beginning of 2019? This is a great time to look back over your list and see how you did. I was inspired by "Happier with Gretchen Rubin" to make a 19 for 2019 list of 19 things I wanted to accomplish in my career this year. (I love a goal-setting strategy!) This week on the podcast, I'll review my list and shar…

In episode 114 I talked about how to survive a bad board. Well that opened the floodgates and I've been hearing about aaaaaaaall sorts of bad board member behavior. Rather than sit and be mad about it, I wanted to give you some things to consider and maybe even a couple of action items you can use to help you get back on mission. The top 3 reasons …

Last week I promised to let you know how things went with my board retreat, and here it is. The main things I would have done differently are: Allow a good 30 minutes at the beginning for chit-chat, people's late arrival, and getting coffee/breakfast Set the expectation that some discussion may be curtailed in the interest of time, if we feel we ha…
 
My org has a board retreat coming up, so I've put a lot of energy into creating an agenda that will work for us. I'm excited to share it with you now. This week I'll talk you through each item on the agenda, why it's there, and how I think it will go. Next week I'll let you know how it went.

I am currently fortunate to be working with an amazing board. Since our org is mostly volunteer-run and board members have operational authority over 90% of our programs, this is a very good thing. But it wasn't always like this. This week I'll share how I survived a bad board year and share some tips that you can use if you are currently dealing w…

Susan is an author and executive coach, who reached out to me while she was researching for a series of articles on self-care for nonprofit leaders for Charity Channel (link below).

Hello and welcome to year three of the Virtual Executive Director podcast! Same music, same host (me), and yes, the same dogs possibly interrupting our recording sessions (though they are blessedly asleep right now). Philosopher and author Alain de Botton said “Anyone who isn't embarrassed of who they were last year probably isn't learning enough.”…
 
This week's podcast is a compilation of all the "Two-Minute Mini" episodes that I have posted so far on Patreon, exclusively for Patreon supporters of the podcast.

This week's summer rerun falls smack in the middle of the busiest week of my year, so it's only fitting that I run the episode about how to prepare for your busy season. Remember, self-care at this time is not selfish. It is critical to your success as a leader, so don't slack on it. Enjoy the show!By Becky Brett Caldwell
 
Yes, this is episode 100 of the podcast, and it is *not* a "very special episode." It got way too close to Festival time for me to do that. But I will tell you, I'm planning something cool for the 2 year anniversary of the podcast in early September, so keep your ears open! In the meantime, enjoy this summer rerun about how to make the most of orga…
 
This week's summer rerun is about boundaries. You know you need them, but it can be so hard to maintain them. In this episode I interviewed Jen Moff, a certified relationship coach, about boundaries--why they are important, why people encroach on them, and how to maintain them. Please share this with a friend who might need to hear it, because we s…
 
This week's summer rerun is a look back at personality profiling. This is by far the most downloaded episode of my 95-episode streak, so clearly people resonate with the information. When you're done listening to this, pick up a copy of Gretchen Rubin's "The Four Tendencies." It is the perfect accompaniment to this week's information. While persona…
 
Last week I got "glutened" which meant I was out sick for a couple of days, missing board meetings and critical proofing time before our major publication goes to print. Fortunately, I had planned a looser schedule and was able to absorb this unexpected and quite sudden sick time without too much stress. Listen to how and why I was able to do that.…
 
The day will come (or maybe it has already) when you and your team are going to be up against a massive deadline. As you inch closer to that deadline, you may start to feel the effects of what I call the Stress Spiral. This happened to me and my team recently. A Stress Spiral looks like this: looming deadline, pieces coming together, then something…
 
On this week's episode, I'm sharing the audio from a radio appearance on WEHC, Emory & Henry College's station, where I got to talk with my pal, Dirk Moore, about the arts, economic development, tourism, and a bunch of other nonprofitly nerdy topics. The calculator that I mention in this episode can be found at http://bit.ly/artscalc. If you run a …
 
This week's podcast is my third annual "Tips from a Grant Panelist" episode. In this episode, I'll share the four top tips I garnered from reading this year's crop of applicants to the VCA general operating support and project grants, and I'll share the tips that my fellow panelists wanted to you to know about. My top four are: 1. Take our advice a…
 
This past week, I got to speak again at a town council meeting. I was not happy about doing it, but I did it anyway. Sometimes we in nonprofit have to stick our necks out so that the person who comes next has it a little easier. I went before the council, and even though I was shaking and clinging to the podium to stay upright, I said what I needed…
 
I don't "observe" spring break, but my husband and I both happened to have business in Atlanta this past week, and we took the opportunity to step away from our usual routine for a few days. The time away made me realize that we don't need to take lavish sabbaticals to refresh and refocus. Even 30 seconds at your desk can have benefits. Listen to f…
 
This week on the podcast is the full audio from my talk at the YWCA's Emerge conference a couple of weeks ago. The topic was "How to Build Unity Around Big Changes," which I've covered on the podcast before. What's different about the talk live vs. on the podcast is that when it's done live, I get to reinforce what I'm talking about with some audie…
