I received some “fan” email not long ago, from a Nonprofit organization who commented to me how much they love the Nonprofit Leadership Podcast and how they pass around the link to this show, with each new episode. I was so encouraged to receive their email, and I was intrigued to find out more about this Nonprofit. As I learned more about them, I quickly realized that I needed to get them on our show. So I contacted Strive, which is a Nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading the power of character-driven leadership. Our guest today is their Director of Development, Linda Schirmeister-Gess.
