Collaborative Leadership Team

Since 2017, iBme has been engaged in shifting our organizational structure, moving away from a typical hierarchical, top-down power structure which ultimately ends with the Executive Director being the ultimate decision-maker, and managers making decisions and having their employees carry out those decisions. We have instead shifted to a collaborative leadership model with shared decision-making, meaning that staff distributes decisions based on each person’s roles and responsibilities, willingness, and resources. This collaborative decision making also extends to the Board, who have opted into working groups based on interest and willingness and who work with staff to tackle big decisions. We are also engaged in a robust feedback system which extends beyond core staff to include retreat staff teams, volunteers, and the Board.
