|Stewarding People Towards Personal Transformation||
The purpose of this final project is to study the extent to which staff at Bakke Graduate University (BGU) experienced personal transformation through their work. As an under-resourced nonprofit engaging in a dynamic global mission, BGU has the potential for creating a work environment that could lead to staff burnout. In the article entitled 'Volunteer and Non-Profit Burnout - The Burnt Stick,' Bart Gragg explains, 'When a person starts down the path to burnout their performance begins to slip, and they know it. But they are tired. They get frustrated because they are not performing to their standards. And therefore they are not being fulfilled. Then they begin to have an attitude, either of anger or despair.' This attitude then affects donors, clients, and other employees negatively, which can then create even greater stress.
