Thanks for listening. Our FREE communication and TRUST BUILDING mini-course is up and running! We'll go over the 8 communication skills you must master to succeed as a coach. You can sign up for it at https://www.pazikperformancegroup.com/masteringcommunication "Consider doing a nightly practice, such as the one I do with my kids. At the end of each day, I ask them to list three things they're grateful for. Then I ask them one thing they failed at today. Failure means "something I worked hard on but didn't achieve." Then, if they failed at something that day, I praise them for having worked hard enough to fail. If they had no failures that day, I put on a sad face and tell them that I hope tomorrow will be a better day, one where they push themselves hard enough to fail. If you kids, try it. If you don't try journaling. Write down a failure, not just a misfortune, and recognize that it means you pushed yourself. Congratulate yourself in the journal for taking the risk." - Dave Asprey
Every salesperson is familiar with the frustration that comes with being blocked by a gatekeeper, which could be a physical person or even just a system or automation that prevents you from interacting with the decision-maker of your target organization. Imagine if you had five strategies (and maybe even a bonus strategy) to get past those gatekeepers and land sales. In today's episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald is going to do just that. Connect on LinkedIn LinkedIn gives you a direct line to a purchaser and an opportunity to build a relationship with that person before you ever meet them face-to-face. Don't just spam someone with offers and messages and instead build a relationship. Congratulate the prospect on a promotion, a recent accolade, or whatever has recently happened. Bring Intelligence Let's say two people reach out to a prospect. One person gives a standard auto-message that could be sent to anyone, and the other person comes prepared with critical data relevant to the industry or organization. Who would you rather have a conversation with? Use direct mail Think about ways you can stand out to a prospect. Even if it's just a $5 gift card to Starbucks, that person will be more willing to talk with you. Consider even providing a small gift for the gatekeeper to thank them for letting you through to the decision-maker; that might be all the difference between a sale and an unanswered email. Utilize referrals If you and the gatekeeper or prospect have a mutual connection, especially if that person is the one introducing you, you'll quickly get in touch with the people you want. Connect with other people within the company More and more enterprise deals are requiring more people to be in the purchasing conversation. If that's the case, connecting with other influencers within that team will give you a better chance for success. Tools like LucidChart help diagram and build out your organizational process to make the process easier. Bonus Strategy: Start a podcast No podcast? Write a blog. Ask gatekeepers for the prospect to share ideas and thoughts on a topic or subject for a content piece. In this case, you're bringing something to the table and offering the prospect a chance to collaborate on a piece of content that will help them, making it easier to get through the gatekeeper. This episode is brought to you in part by Skipio. Are you sick of crickets? As a salesperson, the pain of reaching out with phone calls or emails and not receiving a response is real. But all text messaging is not created equal. 85% of people prefer text over email and phone calls because they want to engage in a conversation, not listen to bots. Be more like people and start having conversations that end in the conversions you want. Try Skipio at www.Skipio.com.

The Wizard of Oz Chapters XVI and XVII Next morning the Scarecrow said to his friends: “Congratulate me. I am going to Oz to get my brains at last. When I return I shall be as other men are.” “I have always liked you as you were,” said Dorothy simply. “It is kind of you to like a Scarecrow,” he replied. “But surely you will think more of me when you hear the splendid thoughts my new brain is going to turn out.” Then he said good-bye to them all in a cheerful voice and went to the Throne Room, where he rapped upon the door. “Come in,” said Oz.”

EP 156 Help Your Team Hurdle the Challenges of Change Thrilled you are here - Congratulate you on – being here – embracing change yourself – Ready to replace, eliminate and conquer the challenges you’ve faced with your teams. Here’s the truth – to make your biggest, boldest impact in the world you need to get the most from your team you need a productive team Breathe in the possibility and breathe out the doubt! I’ve had the privilege of doing this work for almost 30 years and have been witness to the transformation of teams in all kinds of industries……Often leaders are so much closer than they realize……change can happen swiftly with intentional action The saying – Sometimes we are the most frustrated when we are just 3 feet from the gold. I don’t think there’s ever been a time when we humans were bombarded with so much change. And this last year….well, how many times did we hear, it’s unprecedented? Here’s a little stat – see if you can wrap your brain around this. Over 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every single day, and it's only going to grow from there. It’s estimated that 1.7MB of data are created every second for every person on earth. I don’t know about you, but I can’t even begin to fathom how much data that is? How much is a quintillion?? Clearly – change is a given – Before you start to feel stressed by this notion let’s stop to remember what our phones were like a few years ago. Depending on your age, you can think back all the way to when phones had a dial and were attached to the wall. A little farther back and an operator played an integral role in connecting you. Look at all the change you’ve survived! If you are old enough……you can recall a time when you had to go to the library to do research for a paper. And if your topic was extra technical you might even have to go to the basement to work with a special librarian who’d retrieve the musty, dusty reference you required from a locked room. Look at the change you’ve maneuvered. Ask someone to switch from Coke to Pepsi and you’ll witness change aversion in action. My Change Story – Moving 45 minutes away We recently moved and I was shocked at my own response to change. I hadn’t anticipated it. I always look objectively at my own reactions to marvel, assess and take note. I learn from my own experiences so that I can share with others. The move was only 45 minutes away but that required learning a new area, finding the grocery store I liked, testing out times and routes to work around traffic. I no longer had routines in my home and, as an efficiency junkie I was struggling with decisions about where to keep things. Where should each item find its home? I was tired and felt out of sorts. I found myself exploring my new area in a tight circumference around my home. No desire to expand my horizons until I had a good lay of the land close by. It was unanticipated…..but this is what can happen when we move through change. So, how can you help your team move through necessary change at work? Here are some key strategies: Give Grace but don’t accommodate – to expect that all will happily move towards change is setting yourself up for frustration as a leader – A realistic expectation is that people will be challenged…. It is innately difficult for humans to undergo change – some will have an even tougher time. Amygdala – Lizard brain function to keep all of life constant – doesn’t say no change – makes up reasons that feel like factNot trying to turn you into a counselor and don’t expect to fully take on the role of helping them get to a place where it’s comfortable….BUT acknowledging it’s NORMAL will help both you and them…..So….acknowledge = empathize but move on -= the train is leaving…..Do they have any relevant concerns Get Input – Example IT department – end users trying to give me all this input during the training Veterans – For yourself OR to share with your leaders - you may see the end result – have higher level ideas immediately – new less experienced may take longer to get there…..let them go on the journey with you – takes a little extra time but can build buy in Give them the chance to give input – don’t jump on ideas as wrong immediately – let it play out = help them take the journey to where you are = teach – Otherwise you may silence them – they will feel like their input has no value = And they DO have value -= new perspectives = make sure it’s not your challenge with change stopping you from considering alternative ideas And……if you immediately think that idea is no good – is your Amygdala taking over? Reality check initial thoughts about new ideas. See this often in family businesses when the next generation enters – there is conflict between old school and the new generation who wants to make a mark – but may be bringing new and great ideas learned from school, outside experience – which hopefully they have had Communication Back – thank them for input – AND share at least general details about what was decided and why – if their input could not be used – ideas not implemented – were they considered? Share that – share why they were not used or had to be tabled. Review & Revise - Prep for hiccups and future change – most change happens in waves – it does and it SHOULD… Change should include a checkup – how is it going – hiccups are opportunities for more tweaks – often organizations skip that step too – Communicate up front to create the expectation that it will not all be perfect – expectations equals easier to deal with - AND something you can say to quiet those with louder amygdales Provide opportunities for feedback AND ideas Whining is easy Pointing out problems is easy Saying this will never work is easiest of all – Encourage or even require employees to provide solutions – if they see an issue, what ideas do they have to resolve it or make it better? why decisions were made – Learn the Delegation Strategies I’ve shared with THOUSANDS and get your team to do what you need!

Last week, I offered 5 action steps for your resume in the pandemic; today I am giving you 5 action steps for LinkedIn. Next week I will be giving an interviewing clinic. If you are happily employed right now, you can still get valuable takeaways from these clinics. I want to give the same caveat as last week: Keep in mind that anything I teach you will be of little value without the proper mindset. If you are struggling to stay motivated and on-task with your job search, I highly recommend listening to episode #154: 5 Ways Mind Drama Can Creep into your Job Search. This episode, with life coach Jane Springer, will help you identify and reshape your thoughts about the job market, your qualifications, and your prospects in a way that serves you. Let's tuck into my 5 action steps for LinkedIn. My disclaimer up front: I am, and will always be, a HUGE proponent of having your LI profile professionally written, and getting coaching around how to maximize LI for your job search. I promise this is a very worthwhile expense. It's important to understand that recruiters live on LI and they will see your profile before your resume. LI should NOT be an after thought or cut-and-paste of your resume. My 5 action steps will be specifically for those of you who are DIY'ing LinkedIn: 1. Update your profile. I've done entire podcasts on updating your LI profile, so I'm going to hit some high points here. If you don't know how to do any of the things I discuss here, you can check into my LI podcasts or reach out to me for help. -Your picture should be no more than a few years old -Make sure your heading is reflective of what you are looking for next; this is a key place recruiters search. Don't let it be JUST your job title and employer. -Tell your story in a compelling way in your About section, using first person language as if you were having a conversation with the reader. -Update your Skills section and duplicate those skills at the bottom of your About section. This really helps with SEO. -Get at least 3 recent recommendations and tell the recommenders what you are hoping they will say about you. -Write your Professional Experience in the same first-person voice as your About section. -Eliminate ancient history from your Professional Experience section – 15-20 years is a good cut-off point. 2. Get to at least 500 connections. When you ask someone to connect with you, be sure to customize your message but DON'T scare them away with a lengthy, needed request. Here's how I like to approach it: Sarah, I see we are both connected to NAME – let's connect! OR John, It was a pleasure meeting you at EVENT – let's connect! Here's the reason for a minimum of 500 connections: you are increasing your footprint on LI significantly with every connection you make. Let's say you have 500 connections, and each of those connections has 500 connections. Your footprint, as I measure it, is 250,000 people. Meaning, you have ready access to a quarter of a million people – and they have that same access to you. You become more visible with every connection you add, because you become a 2nd-level connection to each of the people your connection is connected to. I recommend going for quantity over quality until you get to 500, and then you can be more strategic about who you are connecting with. They will be more likely to accept your invitation to connect when they see you are playing seriously on LI. 3. Then get strategic about who you connect with. Once you have the magic 500 connections, you can begin to seek out decision-makers and other key connections at your ideal employer. I recommend the same strategy for inviting them to connect with you: “I see we are both connected to…” “I see we both went to SCHOOL…” “I was particularly impressed by your…” 4. Cultivate those connections. Once they've accepted your invitation to connect, begin a conversation. Remember: this is a first date, so think of it as such and don't try to maul the connection with requests too quickly. For example, if the connection is a decision-maker at one of your target employers, your first post-connection message could be something like this: Paul, Thanks for connecting! It seems PAUL'S COMPANY has fared well during the pandemic – congratulations! What have you experienced in your department? OR Sue, Thanks for connecting! How are things at COMPANY? Depending on how they respond, you may ask further questions or request a Zoom call. 5. Engage with the community. I spend 15 minutes a day engaging on LI. Here are the activities I engage in: -Respond to messages -Answer requests to connect -Greet those who accepted my invitation to connect (or whose invitation I accepted) -Congratulate connections on birthdays, new jobs, work anniversaries, and promotions -Engage in the groups I am a member of and with my connections' posts. I also post daily to both my LI profiles – this may or may not be a useful strategy for you, but if it is, it can be a tremendous way to increase your visibility on LI and be seen as a subject matter expert.

[4:34] Tony’s ideal prospecting and lead generation process [8:35] Firmographics, psychographics, and technographics [11:28] The attributes a salesperson needs for success [15:37] The skillsets that a salesperson should develop [17:41] Chad’s top 3 prospecting dos and don’ts [20:45] Why you need to monitor trigger events KNOW Your Ideal Customer Profile (ICP) and Buyer Personas Tony emphasizes that everyone needs to know their ICP and buyer personas before you can start prospecting. You also have to be honest about product-market fit. The entire world is not a prospect. You need to apply time and expertise where it will help people the most and deliver the best result for you and your company. You start by creating a target list of companies. Then you must understand buyer personas. What individuals will you be selling to? Decision-makers or influencers? What matters to them? What pushback will they give? What phrasing and language works for them? You get about 7 seconds before someone wants you off the phone, so you have to use that time well. Then you need to nail your conversation narrative + value messaging. No one wants more tech. They don’t want another vendor to manage. They don’t want another change project. So why do salespeople talk about that stuff? Make the conversation about that person and their opportunity to improve results in their role. Firmographics, psychographics, and technographics Tony shares that firmographics are the attributes of the organization at the most basic level. What is their industry? Their size? Psychographics questions if they are in growth mode, crisis mode, etc? With technographics, you want to research the tech the organizations are using. Every salesperson needs to develop what Tony calls TQ or the Technology Quotient (like IQ and EQ). You have to be able to wrangle the tech stack. Plus, it’s important to understand what tech your product could be replacing. Organizations in startup mode may be using Hubspot. If you’re a Salesforce rep, you want to look for companies who are using Hubspot and who have recently done a capital raise (the trigger event). Tony recommends using headless browsing, trigger event monitoring platforms, and Sales Navigator to find a common trusted relationship. Then you can make the sales call on a warm lead. Trigger events combined with referrals give you the highest probability and fastest path to new customer revenue. Develop your Technology Quotient (TQ) COVID has accelerated the 4th industrial revolution. Tony believes that if you aren't concerned about the bots coming for your job, you’re asleep at the wheel. That’s why it’s so important that you leverage technology to automate your reach. Tony emphasizes that you need to be masterful at talking the language of leaders. Talk about the client’s opportunity to improve results in their role. You need genuine insights and a worthwhile point of view. Unless you hook their interest and back it with legitimate insights, you won’t be successful. You need to develop TQ and use technologies really well. Get masterfully good at using your own CRM. Learn to use Sales Navigator well to monitor for trigger events. When something changes with prospects, you need to know. People treat tech like a gym membership—they pay for it but never really use it. But Tony emphasizes you can’t struggle trying to use the basic technology. Why you need to monitor trigger events Tony was in London last year and was working with 80+ people. He was talking about the power of trigger events and referrals. On day two, the head of customer success asked to share a story. In the last two years, they’d lost 7 clients in Europe. They lost those accounts because a new senior person joined the organizations and they didn’t develop relationships with them. Another salesperson swooped in and developed the relationship and snagged their clients from under their noses. Trigger events are insanely powerful. If someone is coming in and replacing the C-suite executive you have a relationship with, develop a relationship with them—while staying connected with the person on their way out. Congratulate them as they move into their new role somewhere else. In that way, you’re cultivating two relationships where you may have had none if you hadn’t monitored the trigger event.

“Discontent is the first necessity of progress.” - Thomas Edison True contentment runs like a river feeding our everyday lives with constant inner peace. Whether the weather for the day is a turbulent snow storm or a sunny Blue Bird day as we call them in Bend, the river of True Contentment continues to run so long as we feed it with conscious awareness and staying fully present much like a healthy snowpack which keeps the river flowing throughout the entire year. To reach the river of True Contentment we have to create the map for ourselves, not find the map which already exists because it doesn't. It doesn't exist in a bookstore, a welcome vestibule at the beginning of your journey, no. And it is even more interesting to note, the map to true contentment is not an entire life-long journey. Rather, it is a map which materializes as we each navigate forward, choosing to learn and hone skills along the way, asking the scary questions our lives present and trust ourselves walk forward alone. Undoubtedly, you will travel with people at times, meet people and moments along the way who will point you in the right direction, but your journey is your own and you are your best company should you choose to understand and get to know who you fully are. In the striding forward, discontentment is often the North Star if you will. How so? What we don't know is what we need to explore, to understand about ourselves, the world, the moment, and the knowledge we acquire will open the doors our life wants us to travel through to discover a life of true contentment. "My flaws are my doorway to self-understanding and my way of understanding the flaws and fears of others." —David Whyte As I was listening to a recent audio episode by Marie Forleo, she shared Edison's quote at the top of today's post/episode, and such a simple statement clarified immediately a truth in my own life journey - so much of where and how I find myself in my life today is largely if not soley due to my discontent followed by my exploration to better understand, to improve, to change, or to make sense of something which presented itself as an obstacle to self-growth, inner peace and ultimately true contentment. It is easier to see in hindsight what was happening for example when I started blogging in 2009 with no idea what blogging really was - I was searching because the current path (teaching alone) brought discontent. When I chose not to pursue a college athletic scholarship and instead move away from organized sports - I was searching because the current way of traveling (known largely, if not only as being an athlete) brought discontent. The list goes on. However, the key to acquiring the gift of true contentment is a choice you make. A choice to be courageous. "What is the courageous conversation I am not having? Out of the conversation will come as much action as I want, but the action will be simpler, clearer, more central to what I want than a stressed reaction that exhausts me for the real encounters I desire." —David Whyte Such a choice to be courageous means stepping outside of your comfort zone. Stepping away from the mind-numbing busy mentality that blinded you and exhausted you from having the ability to truly understand or see what is missing, what you are longing for. Clarity can only be fully acquired when we calm our mind, calm our days, calm our lives. The progression as Andy Puddicombe shares begins with Calm ----(moving next to . . . ) Clarity ----(moving next to . . . ) Contentment ----- which then enables us to be readily Compassionate to both ourselves as well as others and the entire world as we move through and with it and them each day. But it is in this order we must travel. We cannot wish to be content if we do not fully know the life that is ours to live. A life that is waiting for us to be courageous enough to step forward with Commitment as Marie Forleo teaches. Commitment reveals itself through the consistent actions we take, not the thoughts we have or the promises we make. But let's get back to courage for a moment. Consider this quote from David Whyte from his book The Three Marriages: Reimagining Work, Self and Relationship (2009) . . . "Everything in the world is constantly coming to our door with clues as to how we belong. We only have to follow those clues and we will find our way home . . . in our search for the self, life will provide all the opportunity in good time to temper and make wise our original fire." —David Whyte In other words, wherever you find yourself, whether it is a wanted or unwanted situation, whether it makes sense immediately or takes time to explore to understand the deeper meaning, our lives are leading us and welcoming us, asking us to pay attention. One more quote from David Whyte . . . The key to our true contentment, our calling, our purpose, whatever you want to call it "is always right under our noses. It is so much under our noses, in fact, that in the end we are always told we are the key, we each of us, as a foundational dynamic of life, have to find all the ways to fit in the lock. We are the ones who turn in the door and open it. We have to look for the key by looking at the way we are made to open the great conversations of life. What am I naturally drawn to? How am I made for the world? What is my essential nature?" Now you might be saying - I cannot see it. I cannot see what is supposedly right under my nose. I have so much discontent in my life that it aches and feels immobilizing. First, take a deep breath. *deeeeeeeeep breath* Congratulate yourself for your awareness. Your journey toward reaching true contentment has already begun. You have already put one foot in front of the other. Celebrate this commencement of curiosity because that it was it is. Your curiosity becomes your guide. Essentially, you are your own guide which means you will never be abandoned. You will always have yourself, and yourself wants to explore further the life it has the opportunity to live and the gifts it uniquely has to offer the world. ~Explore more about the benefits of self-awareness here in episode #143. Let's take a look at more wisdom from David Whyte. This time about not knowing . . . "Not knowing what to do, we start to pay real attention. Just as people lost in the wilderness, on a cliff face or in a blizzard pay attention with a kind of acuity that they would not have if they thought they knew where they were. Why? Because for those who are really lost, their life depends on paying real attention. If you think you know where you are, you stop looking." I think it is important to differentiate between searching & learning and constant self-improvement. We provide no more peace to ourselves if we are constantly living in the future, imagining ourselves as better and never appreciating where we are. The hamster wheel of self-improvement ironically takes us away from ourselves by taking us nowhere because it doesn't require that we find peace within. I am guilty of stepping on this wheel as well, so I speak from my own experience of constantly not allowing myself to find peace in who I am today, savoring the moment and enjoying my everydays. I am grateful that I am no longer on that hamster wheel, and TSLL blog over the past ten years since its inception holds at its core the truth that it is our everydays, when viewing and observing and savoring the goodness and beauty that is all around us, we elevate our days and thereby deepen our contentment. The deepening occurs because we are present. If you are a long-time reader/listener of the blog/podcast, you know being present, elevating our everydays does not mean we can't grow. In fact, it is because we are more present in our daily lives that we know growth is possible. Both ideas can share the same space but it must be intentional and consciously done. The fault of the hamster wheel approach, of endlessly pulling off the shelves the next self-improvement book is that we are unconsciously not acknowledging the good that already exists. When we actively and regularly in our everyday lives live in acknowledgement that goodness already exists within us and the world, that is when calm can find us. This takes us back to the progression shared earlier. We must first find calm before we can gain clarity, and it is with these two arrivals that contentment, true contentment, can be experienced. However if you are still not convinced in this paradox that discontent is the path to true contentment, consider this simple, yet true axiom, “If you fight for your limitations you get to keep them …”. Yes, from a movie (The Internship), and from the character played by Vince Vaughn, but think about it for a moment: What we focus on receives our energy. If we focus all of our determined thought (which is energy, which is finite), we narrow our focus to proving ourselves right, unconsciously or consciously. We cannot expend energy we do not have, so why not focus on the life you want, rather than the life you feel stuck in? The truth is, you're not stuck. I don't want to ignore that the world is full of strife, loss, pain, injustice, inequality, because we know that it is, but a wound, a pain, discontent reveals itself seeking to be healed, not ignored. Not accepted as how it has to be. The journey to and experiencing fully each day true contentment asks each of us to be open-minded, fully present and willing to trust our curiosity. One more time to David Whyte . . . "Being smitten by a path, a direction, an intuited possibility, no matter the territory it crosses, we can feel in youth at any threshold, as if life has found us at last. Beginning a courtship with a work, like beginning a courtship with a love, demands a fierce attention to understand what it is we belong to in the world. But to start the difficult path to what we want, we also have to be serious about what we want." Pursuing our curiosity is a practice is faith. Not necessarily faith in the religious sense (although whether you believe in a particular religion, the universe, or whatever you might call the higher, wiser power in your life, each can certainly play a helpful role), but an understanding that tomorrow is unknown, and the outcome of your pursuit toward true contentment is not something you can predict, and especially not in detail. However, it is the trusting in your curiosity that will bring you the peace you seek, the calm you need to acquire the clarity and lead you to true contentment. Because rather than needing a certain outcome to find true contentment, what we each need is fulfillment, a feeling of contributing positively to the larger world in a way only we can, and when we find this truth, our everydays are flooded in the best sense with true contentment. Let me leave you with this final thought . . .

Now that elections are mostly behind us, we wanted to turn our attention to lobbying for policy changes no matter where you are or what project you work on. Our attorneys for this episode Leslie Barnes Jen Powis Shyaam Subramanian Direct download https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/rulesofthegame/ROTG-advancing-policy.mp3 Shownotes In this episode, we wanted to introduce the topic of lobbying and encourage all of our nonprofit listeners to take advantage of this transition time to begin educating and advancing your work to newly elected officials. Nonprofits as subject matter experts & trusted experts Introduce organization, facts about clients you serve & policies your organization support Congratulate newly elected officials by introducing yourself and your mission and Become a resource for new elected official staff. During this transition time, when elections are over, but perhaps new legislative sessions have not begun, or electeds are not sworn in, work to make your issue one of the top issues. Nonprofit public charities can absolutely connect with transition teams to advocate for policy agendas or to prioritize your issue in the early days. For example, recommending characteristics to consider in new appointees to department heads or other appointed spots is permissible and may not count as lobbying! Asking for distinct budget line items to be adopted may be lobbying though because you’re specifically asking for funds to be included in the law at a very specific amount. For example, providing a fact sheet showing exactly how you’d like police funding to re-allocated to social services within the police department (or outside of it) would likely be lobbying. Remember there’s a distinction between lobbying for specific people to be voted in; and for recommending people (or types of people) to be placed. The more specific your request is on a policy, the closer it become to actual lobbying and not simply education and advocacy. Remember, advocacy to existing government staff around rules, regulations, and executive orders is NOT LOBBYING! E.g., HUD regulations, Executive Orders to fix family separation etc. We’ll be discussing the distinctions between lobbying and advocacy a lot over the next few months as we gear up for a new year and new legislative season but in the short term, remember that as a nonprofit, you play an incredibly important role in policy! This could also include actually serving on the transition team. For example, maybe a new mayor wants to study an issue in your town, like how to support performing arts organizations that are struggling. So before she is sworn in, she creates a table to gather resources in the lame duck period. If you’re not at the table, ask to be, or better yet, ask that the table be formed with you as chair! This is allowed! When does it turn into lobbying? All this education turns to lobbying when distinct policy agendas are discussed or specific requests for a line item in a budget is relayed to a legislative official or staff member that has the ability to write it into a law. Because lobbying is such a big topic, we’re going to spend multiple episodes fleshing out the nuances in the topic. But for now, the most important part, and you’ll get tired of hearing us say it is: Public Charities and community foundations CAN lobby Lobbying is the express act or communication that attempts to influence legislation or change the law. There are two tests for how much lobbying a public charity can engage in and how it reports that lobbying to the IRS on its tax return at the end of the year. The two tests are: Insubstantial Part and 501(h) Expenditures Test Just a reminder, you must track and report IRS-defined lobbying activities to the IRS. Another bit of misunderstanding we often see is around whether private foundations can fund grantees that lobby. This topic is complex and while a private foundation can absolutely support all nonpartisan advocacy programs, a private foundation can not earmark funds for lobbying or it risks incurring an excise tax. Let’s not leave out unions, or trade associations, or other types of nonprofits! While this is not the main subject of this show, just a reminder, 501(c)(4)/(c)(5)/(c)(6)’s can also lobby. Lobbying is a big topic and one that BA specializes in. There’s much more on our next episodes. For immediate questions, call us at the Bolder Advocacy hotline (free) 1-866-NP-LOBBY.

On this episode of Rules of the Game, we’ll take a look at the ways nonprofits can work with newly elected officials to advance missions and policy agendas.

Lobbying is defined as activities designed to influence legislation, for IRS purposes. 501(c)(4) social welfare groups can lobby an unlimited amount. Private foundations cannot lobby without incurring a steep excise tax, but they can engage in the following non-lobbying activities: Congratulate newly elected officials Hold elected officials accountable Schedule meet-n-greets Share funding interest Share foundation’s mission Build relationships Influence executive orders, rules, regulations (not IRS lobbying) Join us for future episodes of funding advocacy AND direct advocacy Advocating on Executive Orders Don’t involve legislative action, therefore NOT IRS lobbying Safe for 501(c)(3) public charities and private foundation alike Gov.
