Non-family Staff Peer Network: Wearing Many Hats with One Head – Difficult Choices as a Staff Member

Non-family staff members tend to wear many hats—they are responsible for balancing multiple aspects of their foundation’s growth, sustainability, goals, and overall culture. For a small foundation staff and particularly for a sole foundation staff member, prioritizing and making difficult decisions are necessary to be sure all work gets accomplished. Join NCFP’s Non-family Staff Peer Network to consider the many difficult choices staff members face and how your peers respond to their own organizational needs.
