In this episode, we’re talking with Jewell Mitchell about a challenge she faced when she felt the process for a large capital campaign was becoming disconnected from the organization’s vision and values.


Jewell is a non-profit leader with a particular belief in and focus on supporting the potential of women and children.


Individuals can have very different approaches to decision-making. And when you put these different approaches into a group process, conflict can erupt. 


Jewell talks what she learned from this difficult experience about the leader’s role in setting up these group processes for success and how to keep your team on track as you move forward.
