Category: Learning Organization
We began with several retreats to ground the organization in creating the mission, vision and values. Using Myers-Briggs, the organization developed a common language to communicate around differences. From the beginning, they established the goal to be a learning organization. This mindset affected everything, from the way they approached grant-making and large projects, to the way they dealt with conflict and accountability, evaluated work, celebrated achievement and developed staff. In addition to coaching the senior leaders, Lisa facilitated planning sessions, development retreats, and special meetings on growth and conflict.
