    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at American Lung Association full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It has a great mission with wonderful volunteers.

    Cons

    Heavy staff turnover, not enough board leadership, mixed messaging in branding, no staff development.

    Advice to Management

    "Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions." There was not true leadership at the helm - learn to actually like the people who work there - it's like magic when you do. You don't demand respect, you earn it.
