Most young people near the start of their career are not typically thought of as leaders in the workplace. Why? Because you inhabit a low spot in the office hierarchy and have lack experience and practical “hands on “skills, but with a plan (and right attitude) you can become a leader.
I was in Mexico two years ago, where I was offered the opportunity to chat with one of the founders of Global Dignity. He passionately told me about an organization that he co-founded. The organization was active in most of the world, except in Denmark (where I live).BUT I have never been employed in or managed an NGO before. Hence, I must admit that I hesitated when the co-founder offered me to become chairman of the board and be responsible for the organization in Denmark. No money available and no formal organization. Sounds like a scary plan. But it is not. Considerable things can be learned from the NGO world, and I would like to share some of the learnings in this blog.
