Use well researched standards of excellence to:
Review strengths and areas for improvement

Build ownership for change
Generate targeted and practical actions

In this time of increased scrutiny and competition for resources, build:  
strategic collaborations
an engaged and effective board of directors

a stronger and more unified national or provincial federation

The Benchmarks of Excellence process helped our Board and staff to learn about our areas of strength and focus on critical issues. It was a rejuvenating experience.

Linda shared her Framework for Success for Federations with us at a crucial time in our deliberations to review and renew our current agreement. It captured the attention and imagination because it mapped a process that successfully stimulated creative and open discussion in a way that was consultative, collaborative and respectful. We continue, with her help, on a path to re-define ourselves as a successful Federation in Canada.
