Our Client is a Midwest-based Christian nonprofit ... a leader and innovator confronting the challenges to men in a culture which values competition and aggression as preferred male characteristics. Through deepened understandings of age-old truths, men find more meaning in living as counter-cultural beacons. On behalf of our Client, we seek a push-the-envelope Executive Director to build on its thirty year history and further the spiritual health and wholeness of men.
This key executive, together with the Board of Directors, will set the strategic direction of the organization. Through innovative style, he will lead the dispersed tactical team through regular digital go-to-meeting technology and occasional in-person sessions. He may reside anywhere in the 48 contiguous states but must be within easy access to a major airport. A seasoned communicator, this individual will embrace a broad array of tools to engage the culture. Caring, coaching, mentoring, challenging, leading ... these traits are at the core of this person's interactive style. Versatility in personal interaction is key with a demonstrated history of effective interaction at all levels and across all functions in diverse organizational settings.
As the Executive Director, this person must bring a strong history of effective board interaction, major donor development, and a compelling presence in one-on-one and small group settings, as well as before large assemblies. A grounding in Christian principles is essential.
Critical requirements for this Executive Director are:
-- An outside the box innovator with a knack for embracing fresh approaches to out-dated cultural mores;
-- A seasoned do-er with demonstrated organizational skills in setting priorities and meeting deadlines amidst the constant flood of well-intentioned demands;
-- Thorough grounding in network and team development from concept to realization ... with an ability to identify, invite and invest in individuals comprising a network spanning North America;
-- An innate drive and initiative requiring little in the way of direct supervision, able to function effectively with minimal direction ... and able to instill those traits in others.
-- A co-traveler on the Christian journey who cherishes moments of intimate encouragement in time of deep need.
