Optimize Your Culture and Achieve Exceptional Results
Why Deene? Our non-profit arts organization experienced significant growth in the last several years, and it was time to assess the effectiveness of our leadership and governance. We sought a professional to assist us with this potentially stressful process. With Deene's help, our Executive Committee learned a lot about our individual leadership preferences, which came as a surprise to many of us who have worked together for over 20 years! We came to understand and appreciate the native talents we bring to our Board service and how to work together even more effectively to achieve our organization's goals. Deene is an excellent facilitator who with grace and humor, skillfully kept our discussions focused. Deene's extensive experience gives her unique insight into the challenges that boards face - an insight that proved very valuable to our Directors as we identified meaningful action steps that will result in positive change for our organization. For these reasons, I highly recommend Deene's services to any non-profit considering a Board or governance review! - Deborah Carey, Vice President, Arts Organization
