Importance of Clarity

People won’t support what they don’t understand. We must have clarity in order to make an impact. 

In this week’s on-air nonprofit coaching call, I’m working with the lovely Dooshima David-Jang, a nonprofit leader from Nigeria. Inspired by her father’s legacy, she started a nonprofit when she saw a disconnect in her community.

First we had to dig into what that really meant. Then we could design a short-term action plan so she can gather more information from the community while serving them at the same time.

Finally, she asks if I have any insights about why her grant for a much-needed idea wasn’t funded.

For all three points, it all boils down to clarity and impact.

Let’s dive in!

Clarity Is the Key to Making an Impact

I hope you’re starting to see the power of clarity and strategic thinking. In Dooshima’s case:
  • She first needed to get clear on the impact she wants to make with her nonprofit.
  • Then she needed an action plan to find the shortest distance from Point A to Point B. That way she can build momentum, develop community partnerships, and iterate her programs.
  • That will give her more powerful leverage in the future when she’s ready to start applying for grant funding.

Challenge Question:

Is there an area you’re holding back because of a lack of clarity? If so, we need to dig in and polish it up!
