Personal Strategy: Mobilizing Your Self for Effective Grantmaking

May 1, 2005

Whether it's introducing new ideas into your foundation or offering constructive feedback to a grantee, grantmakers can develop personal strategies to meet the "soft" challenges of grantmaking. Effective personal strategy helps practitioners use their understanding of self and role - as learner, analyst, bridge builder - to manage the tensions that come with the job. In this guide, contributors discuss the elements of personal strategy and how it helps grantmakers to leverage their strengths in service to their objectives. The guide also explores why some grantmakers are able to think and work like "naturals" - and how the rest of us can emulate their style.HighlightsUnderstanding one's role and why it mattersThinking like a natural in difficult situationsReflective practice techniques for effectivenessWhat's in the Guide?Personal Strategy and Why It MattersThe Elements of Personal StrategyThinking Like a Natural: A FrameworkReflective Practice Techniques to Improve Effectiveness
