Thinking with your heart in the 21st century

Non-Profit Organisations

Pressure to professionalise. Skills shortage. Sustainable structures. Change management. Generational change. Fundraising. Changing fields of activity.

“It’s about important social issues, about social cohesion and social peace, about participation, about helping those in need. This means that the inner orientation – the values and the attitude – have to be right. Leaders need the right mix of pragmatism and idealism if non-profit organisations are to compete with the private sector. Thinking from the heart is the motto here, otherwise no one will be up to the task.”

— Christian Schüssler

Today more than ever, growing economic pressures call for more professional management of not-for-profit organisations. The challenge is to combine economic and social objectives. Opportunities arise from rethinking services to meet specific needs and finding the best solutions.
