"The Ignorance Ceiling"
It's sort of like the Glass Ceiling.
Only all genders can experience its devastating, discouraging, demotivating, disillusioning frustration.
It goes like this:
(1) ambitious fundraiser gets the necessary training in something, maybe #donorlove;
(2) ignorance seated in a position of power [boss, board] says "NO, you can't. We don't talk that way. And I don't like it."
I see it everywhere. A major reason, I've come to believe, why fundraising remains such a struggle for smaller US nonprofits: ignorance in power. And they call it "leadership."
