BGCG recognized the importance of putting an “infrastructure” into place for continual and evolving capacity building year after year. Each year, the leadership team meets with The Strategy Group to develop an annual plan that addresses both short- and long-term goals for the organization and culture. This has included the following work:
Executive Coaching – TSG provides one-on-one bi-weekly executive coaching support for the President and CEO. During this time, we act as the President and CEO’s sounding board – challenging her assumptions and helping her to overcome them.
Scenario Planning – During the pandemic, the BGCG executive team needed to carefully and thoughtfully plan, first, if they could open their summer camp, and then, how they would open the camp in the summer of 2020. TSG was called in to help lead a meaningful conversation and guide the team through a series of scenario planning meetings. Ultimately, scenario planning helped the BGCG team to react quickly and decisively, recognize and mitigate risk, and plan for summer camp. To read more, click here.
Retreats/Trainings – BGCG has made an investment in their senior leadership team. To that end, TSG has crafted a professional development program designed to build strong future leaders. Topics have included: Planning, Building Effective Teams, Effective Supervision, and Conflict Resolution.
Board Support – Purposeful boards understand their roles in helping organizations live their missions. The Strategy Group has created a board development plan that includes ongoing support for the board chair, an annual board assessment and satisfaction survey, assistance with the CEO evaluation, and board retreats and trainings.
Capital Campaign Support – The Club last embarked on a Capital Campaign in 2003, when it set it sights on upgrading its facilities. The time has come for a new Capital Campaign, which TSG will offer support for, to make continued improvements of the main Clubhouse and Camp Simmons, 77 acres of unspoiled wilderness that includes playing fields, a swimming pool, bathhouse, covered area, lake, and miles of trails.
