I primarily work with entrepreneurs who have big visions and are passionate about making it happen while actively looking for any help they can get along the way. Rarely are their limitations money or other tangible resources but rather the talent and energy needed to put into action their ideas to produce real results. 

The secret to leaders getting what they are thinking into the heads and actions of others can evade even the most powerful and charismatic entrepreneurs. 

The reason is highly successful visionaries are people of action, and often don’t have well developed processes for transferring what seems obvious to them into the behaviors of others. Add to this dilemma the fact that people are unique in the way they respond to information and directions, have differing communication styles, and you can begin to see why this complaint is so frequent. For you as a leader, getting your influence to stick in the heads, hearts, and actions of others may be one of the most valuable skills you can develop. 

I’m not without this frustration myself. What I have learned first hand, has prompted me to study what works in developing a reliable leadership process that sticks. I call it Sticky Leadership. 

Sticky leaders practice three important disciplines that make it possible to transfer the fullness of their vision and associated passions to others that create a coordinated action and produces real results.  More info...

Albertina KerrSince 1907, Albertina Kerr has strengthened Oregon families and communities. Today, we provide programs and services to children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges, empowering them to live richer lives. We're building an army of angels. A community that stands together. Where we challenge the norm to create a society that has no barriers. Where people who face developmental disabilities and mental health challenges are included and empowered. Where families are supported and children have reason to smile. Where everyday people reach out to the most vulnerable and give back to their community.

Mt. Hood Kiwanis CampAt Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp, we empower children and adults with disabilities. For over 80 years, we have partnered with the U.S. Forest Service to provide individuals with disabilities an outstanding overnight recreational opportunity in the Mt. Hood National Forest. We offer eight week-long sessions of residential summer camp, providing our campers with a one-on-one camper/counselor ratio. We also offer programming throughout the year at our fully accessible 22-acre campsite.

Northwest Down Syndrome AssociationThe NWDSA has been a parent-driven family support network since 1997. The NWDSA’s mission is to create and nurture a loving and inclusive community celebrating every person with a disability including Down syndrome. NWDSA/ABI will accomplish this mission by empowering and supporting families and individuals who have been touched by developmental disability. Together with our cross-disability sister project, All Born (In), founded in 2006, we will work to increase education, promote public understanding and acceptance, work toward full inclusion, and defend the civil rights of individuals with Down syndrome. 

United Cerebral PalsyUnited Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Oregon and SW Washington is a non-profit based in Portland, Oregon. We’ve been committed to advancing the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities since our inception in 1955. Today, we provide supports for adults, children, and their families who experience cerebral palsy or other disabilities. In June 2014, we launched a new in-home service called Building Blocks, which provides in-home supports to children who experience developmental disabilities and who are funded through the K Plan. These services include attendant care, skills training and respite relief care for their parents.
