Throughout 2009-2010 program year I had the opportunity to participate in "Impact Texas". Our program was selected from among a host of applicants who participated in the CCAT: Core Capacity Assessment Tool. The assessment helped us identify areas in our organization and program that need strengthening. I participated in a series of training in the area of strategic thinking, influence development and team management that have benefited me personally / professionally (how to manage a team under changing circumstances, creating outcome oriented employee evaluations) and our team as a whole. One of the great team benefits has come to us in the shape of Ann Ranson who has coached us individually, as a team, and program wide with our coordinators and advisors. As a result, we are developing an in-house Team Operating Agreement, and have undergone a strategic planning process statewide. This document is being finalized and will guide our operations for the next 3 years. Thank you One Star Foundation for selecting HIPPY Texas for Impact Texas!
