One of my cousins came across this TEDtalk recently and shared it. It is an interesting take on charities. I think that it reinforces the lessons that INDEVours are being taught, as we have had many courses on business, which has reinforced the perspective that Dan Pallotta shares in his talk, that we ought to treat not-for-profits as businesses.
As the talk progressed, I realized that I definitely have the ingrained reaction that he proposes as 'wrong', and I am still figuring out whether or not that needs to be changed drastically or just tweaked.
Readers - what do you think about this presentation and the principles in it? Does it echo your feelings about charity, or are
your feelings echoed louder in the methodology that Dan Pallota presents as incorrect?
