Analysis

We’ve dwindled and things don’t feel right. Each volunteer feels unappreciated no matter how much we try to appreciate them.

Our leader has great ideas and strategies, but their follow through keeps getting distracted. We need to be cohesive and find some follow through or we’ll have to close.

Planning

What used to work just doesn’t work any more. The way we’re doing things is antiquated and we need to either start over or learn how to transition.

Everyone is afraid of each other. Staff gives over and above to keep their jobs, but they aren’t producing the results to lead the organization forward.
