    A special thanks to Sheri Chaney Jones, M.A., President, Measurement Resources Company, and author of Impact & Excellence: Data-driven Strategies for Aligning, Culture, and Performance in Nonprofit and Government Organizations (Jossey-Bass, 2014) for inspiring CCODN members at our July Professional Development Program with her passion for helping government, nonprofits, and small businesses achieve high performance. 

    Sheri sees the story only concrete measurement can objectively tell and guides her clients to identify their social impact and how they change lives. And yet she demonstrates that measurement is but a key component of sustainable success. Sheri indicates that Data + Leadership, Defining Success & Culture = Excellence. 

    In her experience, making it stick requires identifying (key sources of) dissatisfaction, clearly aligning with vision and taking the right first steps. These essentials are key to overcoming the resistance, which is an inevitable reality when introducing change. 

    Sheri recently developed a model describing the characteristics of a High Achieving Social Sector Leader: PIONEER (dedicated to continuous improvement) PARTNER (collaborating within and outside the organization) PLAN (working an effective plan) PERSIST (execute with feedback loops) PIVOT (ride the wave of inevitable change) PROVE (own results). If you missed Sheri at CCODN, you can experience her enthusiasm and wisdom in a presentation at

    This is a growing trend many are jumping into and it will be interesting to see what replaces rating systems. I can vouch for the quality of the programs of this organization, have signed up myself to attend, and thought of my colleagues here who also might want to attend.

    Discover why Eli Lilly removed ratings and take a deep dive into how they transformed their performance management system for the better..

    When leaders dig into our Kill Your Performance Ratings research, many are eager to learn what a post-ratings workplace looks like. What steps do large organizations take and what are they doing in place of ratings to create a more engaging and rewarding work environment? 

    Dr. David Rock (Director, NeuroLeadership Institute) and Mark Ferrara (VP of Talent Management, Eli Lilly & Company) will share the Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company’s story in this complimentary webinar. Participants will dig into Eli Lily’s performance before and after, complete with internal research and case study data. If you work in the talent management or human resources space, this is a webinar you don’t want to miss.
