MGOs will stay at an organization when the manager or leader isn’t constantly hovering over them and creating an atmosphere of fear in the workplace. And when MGOs are encouraged in this way, they will make mistakes. This is good.
Once an MGO starts realizing that structure is there to work for them, and that they still have the freedom to do their work… they get very happy. And so are their donors… and then they see success. It’s beautiful.
I am no stranger to fear. I know its grip and the power it has either to make me do stupid things or worse yet, to make me take no any action at all.
