My experience with Selah gave me time to reflect on how to be a more effective Board chair. The 360 degree feedback exercise helped me to realize that I held too much of the enthusiasm for our mission. I needed to find a way to for my fellow Board members to carry some of the passion for our work. Some exercises and feedback conversations gave me tools to do this -- and a few years later I am happy to say much of it has worked.
