When Executive Director, Leslie Nelson, wanted to build her team and connect in a more meaningful way, she turned to her group of 10 for suggestions. They had been having book club meetings and the usual office birthday lunches. However, as soon as Leslie floated the idea of bringing in a productivity coach to help the team work through core issues applicable both at work and at home, they were eager to get started.
The team, which is in charge of fundraising for the hospital, actually chose to redirect the budget for the lunches and parties and invest in themselves. It was a really creative way to come up with the money.
Over the course of 11 months, Marcey offered five team workshops custom-designed to fit participants’ needs. She also had monthly private coaching sessions with Leslie and her three front-line fundraisers.
