Leadership in a passionate organisation.
Taking a pivotal leadership role in an unpredictable and emotional organisation was a challenging ask. The first and most enduring thing to do here was to listen. After doing this, and upon reflection - it was clear that there was a strong, aligned love of community that was not being shared.
A culture of community story telling was developed as an avenue to uncover this shared love. This, aligned with a search for excellence, consistent messaging, hiring from within and a no surprises approach helped the whole organisation rediscover their love of community. The organisation is now expanding its reach and positioning itself as a respected authority in its field.
The key to moving from a community holding exclusive next step meetings off site in May to an aligned community who came together for their largest ever Christmas celebration in December was listening, reflecting, uncovering, then guiding this love of community and passion.
