“What if we invest in our staff’s development, but then they leave us? Well, what if you don't invest in their development and they stay?”
The nonprofit sector is unlike any other. It is competitive with long staff hours and limited resources. However, the employees make it special, unique, and successful. These individuals show up every single day ready to advocate and work for the cause. Staff members dedicate 40+ hours a week to insure that the organization's mission is going to be successful and properly integrated into the community.
Staff members are the champions of “wearing many hats.” No nonprofit employee has just one task or skill to do. In fact, many support various avenues of the organization and possess diverse skills in order to do this. In the for-profit world, these roles are commonly distributed as multiple separate positions. And that accomplishment of nonprofit staff is something to accept, celebrate, and foster.
The individuals who dedicate their careers to the nonprofit sector are very good at what they do, but no one stops learning or is an expert in all fields.
Investing in the people who make the mission happen should be a top priority for any nonprofit organization.

In most instances the members become each other’s greatest confidants and their most trusted advisors.
