How to motivate board members who are uncomfortable opening doors or making connections

/
But you CAN change your board members' nervousness and fear. You have to take them through a specific "attitude adjustment" process. You have to change their mind about fundraising - that it's NOT asking for money.

Powerful morale-boosting exercise for your board

/
Morale is often an issue with board members who are treated to too many boring meetings. If I had to sit through meaningless meetings, I'd lose my morale too! I have developed a sure fire exercise that wakes everybody up, gets them talking, smiling and enjoying themselves, gives them their own chance to speak, fans the flames of their energy and passion, and reconnects them with the reason they are taking the time out of their busy lives to serve on the board. Tall order? Try this!
