Change. Some people avoid it, while others thrive in it. Tension can sometimes rise when leaders of nonprofits seek to bring about change to their organization. Rob’s guest today is Hal Donaldson who offers his insight into how leaders can bring positive change to their organizations and how individuals can bring positive change to the world.
Hal is the founder and CEO of Convoy of Hope. Convoy of Hope is a faith-based, nonprofit organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreaches and disaster response. For the past 30 years, Convoy of Hope has been dedicated to bringing help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry, and hurting.
Hal discusses why change is so hard to accept and how leaders must earn the right to bring about change to their organizations. He shares the two exercises his organization goes through when doing an internal “audit”, that can help position your organization for desired positive changes. Hal discusses what it looks like when an organization’s mission and values are not aligned and what leaders can do to remedy that problem. He also shares what has made his nonprofit successful for the past 30 years. Hal describes a unique opportunity he had to interview Mother Theresa and how a simple lesson she gave changed his life. He believes that giving hope is a lot easier and a lot less expensive than one would think. Finally, Hal gives countless examples of the selfless acts he witnesses, that are bringing him hope for the future.
