    So much potential, but so few results and little planning and follow through.

    I worked at CFP full-time


    One of the few compliments I can give this organization is the quality of staff at the Director level (sometimes) and below. Support/administrative, professional and manager level staff were in general bright, competent, and honest individuals. I mostly encountered pleasant people in my five years at CFP Board.


    However, imho upper management lacked the cohesion, thoughtfulness and perhaps even desire to provide a positive and productive work environment for staff and conduct their core business in a proper manner. Some personalities at the upper mgmt level are less than savory or pleasant individuals.

    In general, my experience with the "leadership" team could be characterized by poor communication, less-than-straightforward feedback and coaching, and little support for professional development activities. Some departments were a revolving door, often leaning on temp staff, and it was often difficult to get things done. High-level decisions and strategy often seemed short-sighted and reactionary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd have to say that the review from April 6, 2011 is spot on. There was a lot of talk about core organizational principles and leadership values, but I didn't see much of those play out. Feedback was one-way and it seemed to really be a "take it or leave" environment where only "yes men" and group think was rewarded. I think management needs to really consider the environment they're fostering if they intend to retain strong/talented staff.
