Right-Braining in the Nonprofit World

Jeff Steed

It is common knowledge that using the left side of the brain depends heavily upon quantitative and linear thinking. It is often centered on what makes sense on “paper” from a numbers or metrics standpoint. Using the right side of the brain often centers on what may not be so obvious or logical at the time. It centers on the use of creative and imaginative thinking.

For nonprofit leaders that tend to lean towards the strict use of the left side of the brain, there are some questions that can help force right-side brain activity to help balance a leader’s effectiveness upon the life of a nonprofit organization

Strategic vs. Responsive Grant Seeking

I have spent the past 15 years answering the calls of desperate non-profit executives anxious to apply for any grant that will keep their lights on and let them make payroll. I used to be happy thinking long-range meant 2 months from now. Because let’s be honest, most of the time I can see the deadlines coming in May, I just can’t get to them until I get through the April deadlines. Somewhere along the way I learned that there is a difference between responsive grant seeking and strategic grant seeking. The former is something most of us are familiar with – “oh look, this is due next week but it’s worth $100,000, what do we have that fits?” Followed by lots of scrambling and futile searches for information. Responsive grant seekers respond and react when an agency or foundation issues a Request for Proposals (RFP).
