"The Challenges of Transforming Nonprofit Cultures" - An Interview with Sarah Olivieri | The Transformative Leader Podcast 042

In this episode of The Transformative Leader Podcast, I’m excited to bring you a discussion with nonprofit strategist and leader, Sarah Olivieri. Sarah is a fascinating guest with a wide range of experience in both technical and humanistic domains, speaking on a topic that we don’t cover much on the blog or podcast: nonprofits. That isn’t because I think nonprofits are unimportant, but simply because I have very little experience working directly with them. So I was very interested to learn about the challenges that nonprofits face and how those challenges are being addressed by leaders in the field, such as Sarah and her company PivotGround. I certainly learned a lot in this conversation, and I know my listeners will too. It was an honor to speak to someone doing the truly important work of not just increasing profits for businesses, but helping to make nonprofits better so that they can make the world better for all of us.

"Self-Awareness and Leadership Training" - An Interview with Beth Wonson | The Transformative Leader Podcast 041

And even when training is present, it usually falls fall short of equipping people with the skills and mindset they need to thrive and succeed, both in terms of results and satisfaction. All in all, it was a great conversation with great leader doing the hard work of creating more leaders, and I hope you give this episode a listen!
