    3. 3. My initial introduction to conservation began while backpacking in areas across the US. It occurred to me that while my activity of choice depended upon natural environments, I knew little about that environment. I secured an internship then seasonal employment with Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center in Oregon where I learned about the dynamics of old growth temperate rain forest. Faced firsthand with continuing tension between the communities surrounding this wilderness, I became interested in group dynamics and conflict resolution. So I turned to an interdisciplinary Master’s research in Natural Resources, Anthropology, and Ethnic Studies. Now I am Director of Ozarks Outdoors at University of the Ozarks since 2010 where I’ve demonstrated my success with program development as well as my enthusiasm for conservation and community engagement. I’m looking for a nonprofit that engages both conservation & community. A creative & strategic leader with 12 years’ experience in natural resource-based recreation, 8 years in non- profit management & administration. Exceptional communication & interpersonal skills.

    4. 4. Vision Source: U.S. Global Change Research Program Nature Climate Change “In 2009, there were 2.5 billion connected devices, most of these were personal devices such as cell phones and PCs. In 2020, there will be up to 30 billion connected devices, most of which will be products.” BRIC and N-11 countries have been exhibiting increasing influence over global decisions. Arguably, Fortune 500 companies now hold power than governments do or at least the power to hold government accountable. We have to prepare for cascading system failures in a world already on track for #climate to warm beyond 2°C. It’s time for advocacy to adapt to global conditions that we’ve never before encountered.

    5. 5. Mine is a passion to engage the environment together with community. We have real hope for impact if we can adapt to directly engage both. Source: Charles Derber, 2010 McCrea, Walker & Weber, 2013 Millenials are Our Future To be relevant we must engage the largest, most diverse generation— with $200 billion spending power— who don’t identify as ‘Environmentalist’ but assume they’ll have to fix it. Boomers have Time & Ideals 78 Million People Who Have “Great Confidence,” Believe in Education & Action, The Activist Generation who are Retiring & Already Donated $279 Billion of Volunteer Hours. Gen-X is in Power 84 Million People in Positions of Influence who are Generally Happy with their Careers, Believe Adaptive Change is Needed Working Through the System.

    6. 6. Source: Brad Power, Harvard Business Review Boardsource Communications Based Communication must be central to organization management. Modern technology not only provides opportunity for efficiently sharing information but requires it to survive. Mission Based The first responsibility is the organization’s mission. It must be clear, clearly understood, & clearly consistent with every activity, or clearly, something must change. Entrepreneurial My imperative is empowering an organization & its community to achieve their full potential by creating collaboration & promoting their collective impact. Source: Diego Rodriguez www.imperative.com Source: Likenomics Management “…mission 1st. …neverquit. …neverleavethe fallen.” $136.38 TheAverageValue ofaFacebook Follower “…buildsomething new fortheworld, nomatterwhatseemspossibleor reasonable.” My leadership style is creating a structure of open-honest communication around the mission that reinforces impact in our community.
    7. 7. Source: Mercer Investing in the Mission The most sound investment you can make is in yourself. Investing in your employees fosters commitment, happiness & excitement. “…Failure to invest in leadership as well as services puts the entire mission at risk.” Equipping people with the tools necessary to achieve the objective we ask is traction toward the mission. Centered Leadership Worldwide, what motivates & engages employees is…  Respect, Most importantly  Work/Life Balance  Type of Work  Quality of Co-Workers  Quality of Leadership. Leadership engages the whole culture of the organization, positioned in the center, invested in every aspect of the brand & operations. Shared Power 1 out of 5 employees has an idea how to improve the organization while most of these are never solicited. Since the ‘70s W. L. Gore & Assoc. has used a “Lattice” management structure of work groups and shared control to foster employee investment. Many successful organizations have now demonstrated that crowdsourcing leads to resiliency & advantage.

    8. 8. Know Thyself Understanding the culture of the organization is prerequisite to becoming a productive member. Beginning with 1st-level stakeholders (the board & staff), an engaged leader will pursue understanding about the context in which we’re operating. A structured approach to assessing where the organization is & what its needs are could include…  Reviewing Internal Documents  Reviewing Industry Literature  Formal Surveys  Individual Conversations  Open Round Table Forums Board | Staff Stakeholders Local Communities Global Communities BRAND CULTURE Ethnographyisaboutdiscovering culture,uncoveringthestory.Asit turnsout,soisbranding.

Advocate Consideration Loyalty Experience Purchase Awareness Evaluation Source: http://www.altimetergroup.com/ Source: http://ow.ly/uURkm http://ow.ly/uUQjD Write Our Story Why did we invest in our cause? Investment represents time, effort, resources or money. How do we tell our story to others? When others identify with our story, how do we make them a part of our culture? “A group which shares strong bonds between its members is more likely to offer help over one with weak bonds.” Share Our Story Nonprofits by their nature represent both a mechanism for redistributing wealth & beneficiary of the wealthy. The currency of nonprofit organizations is advocacy, which is least likely cold-calling, most likely when developing a mutually beneficial relationship.
