In 2022, the United Way was facing an uncertain future. They lacked a permanent CEO, their annual fundraising was declining, and their staff was shrinking. Lyn developed and led a strategic planning process that involved the board and senior staff, and helped the organization determine the best path forward. In September, she was asked to become Board Chair and, in partnership with the CEO, lead the implementation of the strategic plan, which is now underway.
In 2017, the VNS of CT had recently hired a new President and CEO, and she wanted to develop a three-year strategic plan that laid out a vision for the future and engaged both her board and staff in the work. As Vice Chair of the board at that time, Lyn developed and led a strategic planning process that included competitive research, stakeholder interviews, a current state assessment, visioning for the future, and a board/staff retreat to ensure input and consensus into the strategic plan. The resulting plan set a path forward for the organization, improving current quality and operations, and resulted in a successful corporate affiliation that provided resources to support enhanced services for the VNS’ clients.
The Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Westport had an Interim Minister in place after the retirement of their long-standing senior minister. The Interim Minister wanted to engage the congregation in a process to develop a vision and plan for the future that would facilitate the recruitment of a new senior minister who could help them achieve their vision. Lyn and the Community Minister led an Appreciative Inquiry visioning and planning process that resulted in a new mission, vision, and strategic plan that guided the board as they recruited a new, much-beloved Senior Minister.
