Andrew Winter Twin Pines Housing

Andrew Winter selected for Achieving Excellence Program

NeighborWorks America is proud to announce that Andrew Winter, Executive Director of Twin Pines Housing in White River Junction is one of 45 leaders selected for the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, conducted at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

 

The NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, made possible in part by support from our generous sponsor the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, is an 18-month program that provides executives with the skills to advance their organizations’ performance. Each participant identifies and clearly defines a specific challenge critical to their organization’s success then spends the program addressing that challenge.

 

“I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to grow my leadership skills and the effectiveness of Twin Pines Housing,” said Winter. “Developing affordable housing and providing residents with the supports they need to stay healthy and housed holds constant challenges. Responding nimbly to the changing landscape is vital.”

 

The only comprehensive training of its kind, Achieving Excellence includes three formal sessions at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, as well as one-on-one executive coaching and intensive peer learning.  The program kicked off at Harvard University Sept. 11-15, and three additional meetings are planned across the country. Between academic sessions, participants will actively work on a clearly-defined goal critical to their organization’s success and will be working closely with their executive coach and peer group.

“The Achieving Excellence Program gives leaders the tools to build stronger organizations—more engaged and results-oriented staff and board members working to increase their impact in the communities they serve,” said Christina Deady, senior director of leadership and workforce development at NeighborWorks America

Achieving Excellence has graduated nearly 400 executive directors, CEOs and other senior leaders since the program began in 2002. Independent evaluations have shown astounding results for organizations that have participated in this program.

In an impact evaluation of a recent class of the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, 72 percent created positive change in their communities, 77 percent raised staff performance and morale, and 100 percent improved organizational strength and results. For more information about the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, go to www.neighborworks.org/ae.
