    Cons

    The organization has silos and senior leaders, though seasoned, are out of touch on how to run a mid/large sized NGO.

    Pros

    The talent that the organization attracts is amazing. One thing that you will not find at many, if any, other organizations is that the hearts and minds of everyone is focused on the welfare and development of children around the world.

    Cons

    The culture is very unhealthy. A culture of fear and intimidation, one hiding behind spiritual conversation-killers such as a new vision or "God revealed to us", is one of the key elements that allows executives and managers to silence and neutralize some of the sophisticated talent that enters the organization.

    Explosive growth on a scale that the organization has enjoyed, even during historic downturns, is a curse in important ways. The senior executives are unwilling to make tough decisions or even deal with potentially damaging information: "How can anything be wrong because God is blessing the minstiry so much". This leads me to believe that the executives will lead until a traumatic event occurs, one that is visible to the outside of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone down to the SVP level should retire or move on. You faithfully served to the best of your ability, but you owe it to the children to move on and allow the organization to bring in the talent required to achieve the 2020 vision (if it is not already too late).
