Role of the General Manager Leadership Team

Establish, maintain, and support an internal structure and culture with forward momentum towards targeted, clearly articulated objectives (including what trumps what when resources limited) by:

  • Interpreting and sharing Council’s direction and the political lens to the organization,
  • Developing and maintaining relationships in the community to promote the organizational interests,
  • Recognizing we are not the technical experts and we work in the “grey”. We are leaders, thinkers, advisors, communicators, and motivators.
  • Aligning the organization, providing them “goal posts” and support in achieving success.
