Lightning and Thunder: Making Partnerships Work for You
Oil and vinegar? Zombies and ballet? An orchestra and a hockey team? Have you ever created a surprising partnership to change your image and reach your goals?

“Being in my fourth decade in the nonprofit sector, I never grow tired of hearing about the amazing creativity that nonprofit leaders exhibit. One of the things I like about the column written by Karen Eber Davis is that she showcases problem-solving at the strategic level by nonprofit organizations that aren’t especially well-known or particularly visible beyond their immediate context. They are just every-day organizations being quite creative. In the latest installment, Karen explores one way a nonprofit solved its customers’ needs by creating a program that reduced their barriers to employment.
