What did Christine have to offer?
I am a trained classical musician. An appreciation for performing arts was instilled from an early age, and music education and performance added great value to my life. It provided me a necessary sense of personal accomplishment, and a sense of community and contribution. The mission of your organization resonates with me because of my personal experience. As an aside, having perused the website, I see missed opportunities to help the organization shine more brilliantly, and would enjoy helping add these elements into the strategic plan. I am excited to help! The strategic planning process is some of my favorite work. It invigorates an organization with bold strokes, hope and possibility. Both in traditional employment and as a consultant, I have enjoyed success in leading organizations in SWAT analysis, thoughtful planning, and incorporating a vital step - implementation. Maintaining the momentum and enthusiasm necessary to reach the stated long-term goals is key. I have developed methods to accomplish this - ways to ensure progress and accountability, and make it enjoyable! Strategic planning requires rigor; reaching the declared goals requires stamina. It need not be a drudgery.
