Long-Term Growth and Sustainability are Goals of Annual Board Retreat

The PAISBOA Board of Directors' Leadership Retreat, facilitated by Sue Petrocelli of North Wind Leadership Partners, was designed to build organizational capacity and success. Objectives for the retreat included: identifying PAISBOA's positive core; imagining what PAISBOA might do if resources were unlimited; exploring potential opportunities; assessing imminent / future threats; determining the Board's aspirations for PAISBOA; and creating a plan of action towards those goals.

Through a variety of individual, small group and whole group exercises, the Board defined PAISBOA using one word:

  • Collaborative - share best practices, information, ideas, learning, relating
  • Collective - synergy of the group
  • Tribe - hands on, engaged, passionate, loyal
  • Supportive - got your back, safe zone, no bad questions, welcoming
  • Cooperative - always there for you
