Is ‘Lead’ one of your favorite 4-letter words? If you ask people what they think “leadership” means, you will get a wide variety of answers. Some people consider leadership a top-down approach to managing projects or companies. Others consider leadership to be something that isn’t connected to a title and is a combination of vision and service to lift and motivate others to accomplish goals.
This week on GrantChat, Dave Tinker, CFRE, is leading the GrantChat community through a discussion about our experiences, perceptions, and evolution through leadership. Dave is one of our favorite GrantChatters and CFREs. Why? Because he is wise, informed, and exceptionally funny!
For a behind-the-scenes peek — the SmartEGrants team and any guest have a conference call duringGrantChat. When Dave has time to participate and pops into Grantchat – we CHEER and yell, ‘DAVE!’ You can imagine how excited we are when he is a guest on Grantchat.
In case you don’t know Dave, he has been in fundraising more than half of his life. He is the Vice President of Advancement at ACHIEVA and an adjunct professor of Informatics at Muskingum University’s Masters of Information Strategy, Systems, and Technology program. He currently serves in a variety of volunteer leadership roles and has a hard time saying no to volunteer requests. Dave loves sports, playing with computers, and sharing 80’s music with his kids.
