La Cheim Works to Optimize Organizational Efficiency Through the Richmond Community Foundation's
"Community Leadership Institute"
La Cheim was proud to be selected from a competitive field of applicants for this innovative leadership development program. This year's Leadership Institute got off to a wonderful start as Richmond Community Foundation launched their 2016-17 cohort with a four-day boot camp September 27-30. Fifteen organizations participated in workshops that covered topics including Strategic Planning, Board Development, and Marketing. We heard first-hand from experienced Executive Directors on their highs and lows and on their different leadership styles. We also heard from seasoned Board Directors about why they serve on Boards and what they expect from Executive Directors. There was plenty of learning, implementing and networking to go around. During the next few months cohort members will take a deeper dive into topics such as Branding, Work-Life Balance, and Social Media.
