Lessons learned

 

A Strong and informed team that fully understands and embraces organisation's  values and principles will empower the organisation to achieve lasting results. 

 

Contrally to the above, the team may  run the risk of setting poor precedents that leave communities feeling co-opted, manipulated, and reluctant to work with external organizations in the future.

 

A  well informed and supportive Board simplifies the work of the CEO and the Staff, and accelerates the growth of the Organisation.
