The Good, Bad and Ugly – Relations that Win!
Connections are imperative for positive relations, business and personal. The people we meet may often launch our minimal existence toward grand paths. But how to structure a relationship that is good for all involved? Simple answer really. Focus on a win-win partnership. Our managing director shares authentic details on forming bonds while building a regional Caribbean nonprofit.
The Good: Ensure connections are good for all!
Unified Events, founded in 2017, received initial sponsorship from private donations. Corporate UK law firm Walkers Virgin Islands insured rewarding community clean ups the start up year. Volunteer programs have been on a roll ever since! We have partnered with a multitude of organizations in the Caribbean and US regions. The good? Knowledge gained through experiences and the perseverance to push forward even when prior attempts turned out disastrous.
The Bad and Ugly: Ending Relations!
Every coin has two sides. Learn when each relationship has reached an end point. Mentors are recommended but not required for expansion. While establishing Unified Events, founder, Dinelle Henley, avid conservationist and consumer service expert, accessed a part time position at local Virgin Islands nonprofit as office administrator. The eight month stint provided free CPR/AED training, a basic and necessary life skill. The time also tested personal limits and on October 1st, 2018 she submitted a resignation letter to president of the organization. Unfortunately, the superior rejected her resignation and encouraged her to continue on in the admin role. In a few weeks during a hectic event celebration, Dinelle was asked to leave due to lost funds. The bad? Not standing firm on a crucial personal decision. Trust that when it is time to pull the plug, as ugly as it may be, always follow through!!
Winning Days for All!
Appreciate trials by taking time to reassess what your mission is. Whether in your organization or personal mission, clarify that statement. Then stand firm and embody your goals with effective action. Life is filled with moments, you decide if they are good or bad. Share a good, bad or ugly experience with us in the comments or via email. Looking forward to hearing from our visitors!
Thank you for supporting Unified Events. Without you we are nothing. Sending joy and many thanks to all donors, partners, supporters, and volunteers!
