Co-Founder, Board Chair, and Executive Director of the Joseph Maley Foundation
Accountability and Authentic Relationships are vital facets of effective leadership, and are frequently interrelated in successful organizations. Accountability is key to fulfilling any mission through defined goals and objectives. Without accountability among leadership, staff, and (in non profits) volunteers, the required actions to achieve goals and objectives are often delayed and diffused. Meanwhile implementing accountability is enhanced through authentic relationships. With genuine, sincere relationships among fellow leaders, staff, and volunteers, respect and trust is nurtured. Holding each other accountable for delivering on goals and objectives is enhanced through such authentic relationships.
This session will draw from lessons learned in founding and leading the Joseph Maley Foundation 10 years ago as a small non profit with a handful of volunteers, no staff, and no budget to what is now a robust, vibrant organization with a professional staff of 14, hundreds of volunteers, a dynamic and engaged Board of Directors, a 6,000 square-foot enrichment center, and a record of now serving more than 25,000 children annually in the Indianapolis area.
