Over the past several months, I began revisiting my life mission which is to "leave things better than I found them." Part of the exploration included my career and ultimately influenced my decision to accept the Armstrong McGuire team's invitation to join them.
Leadership is one of those topics that is both fairly straight-forward, and yet, still largely misunderstood. I recently led a workshop at a business conference about leadership practices that really make a difference, but the truth is, leadership practices that work in business extend beyond the bounds of that sector. Leadership in the non-profit sector is as important today as ever, and having lived in both worlds, I find countless transferable learnings.
We are as strong as our people. This is one of our core values and it is a truth that guides us internally and with our clients. We are pleased to announce that we have added three new leaders to our team of senior advisors Darryl Lester, Hannah Randall, and Melvin Scales. Each bring a myriad of professional and lived experiences to help nonprofit board and staff members unlock the potential of their communities.
Last week, I was glad to have the opportunity to speak at SHARE Charlotte’s Fifth Annual Nonprofit Summit, presenting a talk on building and leading social movements. It was a culminating topic following nearly two years of exploration of how generational change is disrupting so much about how our society functions.
