Stages in Organizational Development: The Second Stage: The Toddler
We have been comparing the stages in organizational growth to human growth. This month we will talk about the second of six stages: the toddler. Anyone who knows a 2-3-year-old knows they are charming, learn new skills every day, are independent (their most frequent word being no), full of curiosity and yet still not stable in their ability to maneuver.
investigate how these qualities are present in young nonprofits
and what strengths and weaknesses they can bring into play.
