This is the sorbet episode between what was Virtual Executive Director for nonprofit leaders and what will be our new interview format for artists, content creators, and entrepreneurs.

On March 15, 2019 I celebrated my 20 year anniversary in festival producing. This year's March 15th was spent in quarantine, and all festivals have been basically canceled for the rest of 2020. This week would have been the opening of the 72nd annual Virginia Highlands Festival, where I serve as the Executive Director. It's bittersweet. I thought t…
 
I was obsessed earlier this year with Malcolm Gladwell's book, "Talking to Strangers." In processing through the information I started to think about loneliness and mental health--especially for those of us working in nonprofit and mission-driven leadership. This provided the context for an interview with Dennis Gillan. Dennis and I were speakers a…

Known as the Disaster Avoidance Expert, Dr. Tsipursky is on a mission to protect leaders from dangerous j…
 
If you're a business owner and you don't have a stated position on diversity, equity, and inclusion, you are behind the times. This week's summer rerun is an interview with Jonathan Pitts, former executive director of Chicago Improv Productions, who has spent the last couple of years on a global improv "walkabout," which has been derailed due to CO…
 
Whether you are happily searching for something new or feeling stuck in your current job, it's important to know how to package the amazing work you've done already into transferable skills.

Welcome to summer reruns! The time of year that I bring back the most popular episodes from the past year for you to rediscover all the juicy bits you forgot you learned. This week is part 2 of my interview with Susan Axelrod about self care for leaders. We have been given the gift of a pause, and if you have been neglecting yourself, this is the t…
 
Welcome to summer reruns! The time of year that I bring back the most popular episodes from the past year for you to rediscover all the juicy bits you forgot you learned. This week, as I take myself off line for some re-visioning and re-evaluation on a personal retreat, I realize it is perfect timing to rerun Susan Axelrod's 2-part episode on self …
 
I've got some vacation time coming up, and yes, I'm gonna take it. I'm using the time as a personal retreat, because this pandemic has put everything back on the table for evaluation. When I come back, I expect to be better than before--for myself, my loved ones, my business, and my organization. This week I share some questions to ask yourself if …
 
With most of us holding meetings via Zoom these days, I'm adding my personal top 7 tips to improve your Zoom experience. No really, you don't want to miss this one. Especially tips 4, 5, and 6 (I know, clickbait-y, but I really do love those specific tips). I'd love to hear your top tips, too! Catch me on email or social media to share. Email Becky…
 
We are in the midst of a global shattering, and improv director/teacher/actor David Razowsky is here to help us through it. You may recall a few episodes ago when I was talking with Kim Farris-Luke about the global grieving process that I mentioned feeling the feelings we're feeling the moment we feel the feelings. That was channeled directly from …
 
I'm salty about saying nonprofits should act more like "real businesses." Nonprofit is just a tax designation. We are all real businesses here. So I'm turning the tables this week and talking about the things that for-profit business could stand to learn from non-profits. Warning for parents: some language in this episode. Resources: Instagram: htt…
 
There are a lot of things we do now that we didn't do just a couple of months ago: washing our hands compulsively, wearing gloves and masks to the store, and spraying Lysol on Amazon deliveries just to name a few. But what about the more enjoyable ways we've found to cope? Check out some of the more fun things we're doing now to get through the pan…
 
Much like in every other area of life during this pandemic, my plans changed for this week's podcast. I had the opportunity to talk with my pal, Kim Farris-Luke. Kim is a funeral director and owner of Farris Funeral Services. She is an expert on the grieving process, and exactly the person we need right now, as we are globally grieving through COVI…
 
In last week's episode, Jen Moff and I talked about the opportunities and lessons available to us now during this time of COVID-19. In an effort to learn something from all this, I took a look at my own situation and asked myself, "What is no longer working for me?" I also asked this question of my colleagues in the Executive Director Mastermind gr…

Thanksgiving and the accompanying public displays of gratitude has come and gone, but I think this week and next are really the thanking season. Now is the time that we receive year-end donations, and hopefully get to sign and send out a small mountain of thank you notes to donors. There are 5 elements to a really great thank you note: The amount a…
 
In episode 114 I talked about how to survive a bad board. Well that opened the floodgates and I've been hearing about aaaaaaaall sorts of bad board member behavior. Rather than sit and be mad about it, I wanted to give you some things to consider and maybe even a couple of action items you can use to help you get back on mission. The top 3 reasons …
 
As nonprofit leaders we are expected to represent our organizations to the public and to be experts at sharing our story. At this moment in time, there is no more prolific platform for doing this than TED talks. I had the privilege of speaking at a TEDx conference recently (on Saturday, Nov. 23), and could hardly wait to share my experience with yo…
 
We are two weeks away from #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019. Love it or hate it, #GivingTuesday is a great opportunity to ride a publicity wave and bring positive attention to your organization, regardless of the size of your company. While it may seem like only the big, well-known orgs get the donations on this day, your tiny org can benefit from …

Last week I promised to let you know how things went with my board retreat, and here it is. The main things I would have done differently are: Allow a good 30 minutes at the beginning for chit-chat, people's late arrival, and getting coffee/breakfast Set the expectation that some discussion may be curtailed in the interest of time, if we feel we ha…
 
My org has a board retreat coming up, so I've put a lot of energy into creating an agenda that will work for us. I'm excited to share it with you now. This week I'll talk you through each item on the agenda, why it's there, and how I think it will go. Next week I'll let you know how it went. If you would like a hard copy of the agenda that you can …
 
I am currently fortunate to be working with an amazing board. Since our org is mostly volunteer-run and board members have operational authority over 90% of our programs, this is a very good thing. But it wasn't always like this. This week I'll share how I survived a bad board year and share some tips that you can use if you are currently dealing w…
 
After all the big-picture interviews recently, I'm checking in to see how everyone is doing. Please let me know! Also, I'm excited to share the full podcast song with you. I don't think I've let the whole song play before, so here it is at the end of this episode. "Follow Me" by Kendall Caldwell and Lynette Kendall And seriously, reach out to me or…
 
Are you new to your leadership position? Do you feel overwhelmed? Do you lie awake at night wondering if everyone's job is as messy and chaotic as yours? Then this week's episode is for you.

We talked about how and why strategic plans go wrong, what it looks like when they work, and how…
 
Oh WOW! This continuation from last week's episode is juicy! Susan Axelrod is an executive coach who specializes in fundraising and self-care. In this half of the conversation, we rant about how badly nonprofit leaders need executive coaching, Susan explains her "Golden Rule" of self-care, and I reveal something embarrassing about myself. This was …
 
This week I got to spend time talking with Susan Axelrod about how colossally bad we are at self-care and what to do about it. Susan is an author and executive coach, who reached out to me while she was researching for a series of articles on self-care for nonprofit leaders for Charity Channel (link below). She is an expert on self-care for nonprof…
 
Improviser and top-ranked tour guide, Margaret Hicks, teaches museum docents, hospitality workers, and anyone who faces the general public some improv tools to better connect with visitors.

Hello and welcome to year three of the Virtual Executive Director podcast! Same music, same host (me), and yes, the same dogs possibly interrupting our recording sessions (though they are blessedly asleep right now). Philosopher and author Alain de Botton said “Anyone who isn't embarrassed of who they were last year probably isn't learning enough.”…
 
This week's podcast is a compilation of all the "Two-Minute Mini" episodes that I have posted so far on Patreon, exclusively for Patreon supporters of the podcast.
