Episode 54: Our Good Things List

It is easy to get caught up in what is not going well these days. In this episode, Sarah tells the story of the board member who went home from a meeting and made a “good things list” to remind each other what is going well. Nancy and Sarah share a few things on their good things list this summer. What is on yours? 

Question to reflect on before you listen:
What is going well within your nonprofit?

Discussion questions:

  1. What resonated with you about this conversation? What would you like to take back to your organization?
  2. What is your current culture related to the balance of conversation between what is broken and what is working? How could you shift that balance if needed? How could flipping the conversation get you unstuck?
  3. Who needs to be a part of shaping your good things list? Or who needs to see or hear what your organization is doing well? 

Word of the week: Flip
What does “flip” mean to you, related to flipping the conversation?

What do you think?
