Skills for Reproductive Rights
IISC worked with PPLM board members and senior management to create a five-year strategic plan that incorporated input from all staff, and provided training in collaborative leadership skills and coaching techniques to over half of the organization. The result, in the words of Executive Director Dianne Luby, was “transformational.” The process of strategizing together facilitated teamwork and understanding across departments and sites as well as between board and staff. The trainings developed skills that led to more focused planning, organization, and teamwork. And with its strategic plan, PPLM developed a unified vision and concrete steps for making the organization a mainstream player around reproductive rights.
