|Case Study: Non-Profits and Associations.|
Organization: Executive Director of an international non-profit organization was challenged to maintain vision and focus of the organization with a volunteer staff of 50 people.
Challenge: The Executive Director’s emphasis is the importance of staying within the boundaries of the organization’s vision; however, the problem remained prevalent because of the multiple cultures, systems, and methods of the volunteer leadership team and staff. “Many ideas are good, however, it is important to keep focus on the vision and values of the organization.” Additionally, Executive Director was stretched in many roles including counselor, teacher, wife, and mother of two boys.
Solution: Utilizing the L.E.A.D.S. Mastery Program TM, we conducted a needs assessment and implemented an individual leadership strategy comprised of two key leadership principles: Inspiring a Shared Vision and Exercising Family and Work Balance.
Individual Impact: Poimena’s leadership development program, L.E.A.D.S.! Mastery ProgramTM, presented the Executive Director with (1) a shared vision strategy engaging the staff to contribute to the vision, (2) the ability to empower his valued-based relationships, and (3) the capacity to delegate more responsibility to the volunteer leadership team; thus, spending quality time with her family.
