In the nonprofit sector, such groups of ‘experts’ exist; make no mistake!
They act like they know what’s best for you, your organization’s supporters, and the sector as a whole while saying they are “just trying to make the world a better place.” And I can only assume that deep in their hearts they really believe that to be true.
But, I have learned (unfortunately from experience) that many of them are actually mostly trying to make their world better. In other words, they are fiercely focused on their own self-interests yet they pretend to be altruistic.
Look, there’s nothing wrong with self-interest. But cloaking it in altruism is misleading. And that’s not fair.
