Personal Summary

To joyfully serve a “make a difference” organization that requires an experienced leader with integrity, excellent communication skills, values collaboration, is an effective fiscal manager, and has a history of trying to implement innovative and productive program development.  Serviam. Not I, but we.

Leadership is more than guidance and willingness. It is more than providing a supportive environment for all people to feel comfortable working in. There are no patented 12-step programs which will ensure successful leadership. Listening skills, critical inquiry, and the collaborative pursuit of ‘win-win’ outcomes are important, but alone they are not enough. Leaders are not made by titles. Leaders do not make excuses or seek to redirect blame.  Leaders serve.

A leader is defined by their inner desire…a desire to succeed regardless of the variables which their environment may present. A leader has not only the courage and foresight to do what is right, but also the fortitude and ability to lead others to a successful outcome. I strive to become such a leader, recognizing continued room for growth within myself, but always pressing forward. With effort, humility, and God’s help, love, and guidance I believe that I shall achieve.  Serviam.

Thank you for your consideration. -David Stone
