DOCUMENTS & FORMS : Our Give-away on the Internet
Below you will find funded grant proposals, a final report, interim report and our latest timesheet. We make these available to new staff and we thought these might be useful to new companies. When I started out writing grants and other reports, it was useful to have models to follow. Many people in small organizations, especially in rural areas, do not have that advantage. You are welcome to use anything you might find helpful. Appropriate credit to Spirit Lake Consulting, Inc. would be appreciated.
Years ago, a former colleague asked, "Why do you give hand-outs at conferences? You shouldn't include bibliography that has all the resources you reviewed. It's stupid to let someone else profit from your work without you getting anything for it."
One reason why, as our president, Dr. Erich Longie, reminds us often, is that being stingy is not a trait admired by the Sioux. Generosity is a traditional value and we believe, if we give away our resources, perhaps you will tell your friends, increasing the traffic to our website and our reputation. That is good business and very smart. Even if you don't tell anyone, we still believe it is better to be generous than stingy.
