Crossroads Global CEO continued his conversation with Janet Nolan, CEO of Christian Horizons, after we went off the air. Christian Horizons has grown globally since it was established about 50 years ago. About 20 years ago, they've started their global outreach by serving in Guatamala and Ethiopia. Now, they are currently serving in 7 different developing countries, helping about 50 000 people directly all around the world.
After working with Christian Horizons for 25 years, with the last 3 years as the CEO, Janet's secret for staying fresh in the midst of all the familiarity is by staying in touch with the reality. She would spend time with the staff or the families and people that they are serving. It is critical for her, as the CEO, to know what is going on - the various challenges that people face on a day to day basis. That way, she can go back to the drawing board and figure out how they can facilitate and solve the issues so that the whole organization can move forward.
