“What we have to fight, the chaos of nature, per Gonzales, is this: our brains. Our ability to manage our impulses and also to be present mentally to find solutions even if they mean ignoring previous training.”
Clear boundaries and expectations.
Clear and coherent job descriptions.
Evaluation, weekly meetings, structure.

Pushiness is in the eye of the beholder. Generosity requires that we be aware of how the other person is feeling about the forward motion we’re trying to make.
Listening to donors and sharing a story they can feel in their bones….
