Here's a practical concept for all of you managers: managing up. It's the idea of positioning people so as to accentuate the positive. You can manage up your boss, your staff and even your organization. When you think about how managing up creates an environment where people feel valued and respected, the sustainability implications become pretty clear: easier to recruit, easier to retain.

Dear Engaged Bystander, I have been teaching workshops for a long time – so when I did my very first workshop about bystander engagement, I had a rude awakening. I thought it went really well, I had that nice feeling that I had connected with my audience and we all learned from that connection. But then at the end, one of the participants asked me, “But how do we get people who are not affected by sexual abuse to take action?” 
 
I had failed.

Dear Engaged Bystander: Images and words speak volumes about how people think and feel about an issue. Think about when we use the word bystander --  we usually describe that person as an "Innocent Bystander". We never hear the phrase "He/she was a Guilty Bystander."

Many of you are probably working on some aspect of grant writing and/or fundraising right now. I know I am. So I was really interested in this short article published over at Network for Good on 6 words every nonprofit should avoid. I'm not going to say a lot about it, since it's a pretty self-explanatory piece, except this: all 6 words show up (often) in my most recent grant application.
 
Damn.

Dear Engaged Bystander, Have you seen the recent disturbing story about the rape of a young girl (15 years old) on a side street, in broad daylight? Some media outlets are picking up the story and saying that no one did anything. Someone who drove by the scene was quoted as saying that they thought they were “just having sex.” It is hard to imagine -- this girl was raped on the sidewalk, with people driving by, in daylight, and remember, this is in the middle of winter!

Forensic nurse examiners are by and large late adopters when it comes to technology. While it's fantastic to see so many of you creating pages and posting regularly on Facebook, there's still some untapped potential for spreading information in a far simpler and quicker manner: Twitter.

How do I begin a blog about engaging bystanders?   Why would you want to read this? Who am I to begin writing this blog?
