Leadership Learning Series: Build Collaborative Performance Plans
February 9 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Learn how Resolve Philly is shaking up performance planning to make it more transparent and inclusive by co-creating plans with staff and providing consistent and substantive feedback. Resolve’s Co-Executive Directors Cassie Haynes and Jean Friedman-Rudovsky share how and why they created this new approach and practical information on how you can, too. This program is part of INN’s 2023 member-to-member webinar series on innovative, people-centered leadership approaches to growing talent within member organizations. These sessions are designed to make big concepts practical and concrete so that members can implement them in their own organizations.
About the speakers
Cassie Haynes has been a leader in social innovation and business strategy since 2012, holding executive leadership positions with the City of Philadelphia and in startups at the intersection of the health and fitness industries. In a past life, she was Executive Director of the global governing body of flat track roller derby and had a brief tenure as a lawyer with a mid-sized Philadelphia law firm. She co-founded Resolve Philly alongside Jean Friedman-Rudovsky in 2018, frustrated by Philadelphia’s stagnant social mobility and intrigued by the role that journalism could play in driving equitable solutions to something as deep and systemic as racism and poverty in Philadelphia. In the years since, Resolve’s portfolio of work has grown and Cassie has become a national speaker and thought leader on diversity and belonging in newsrooms, shared leadership, and building equitable organizational structures. She has appeared on panels and hosted discussions with the National Press Club Journalism Institute, Knight Foundation, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and a range of other institutions. She’s a Boston Marathoner, holds powerlifting records in two states, and is currently writing her first book.
