Why Learning to Walk Away is the Secret Sauce to Strong Leadership
"One of the hardest decisions I make as a CEO is when to say, “It’s over.” Quitting a project, letting go of staff, moving away from a corporate partner, taking a goal off the table or a department off the org chart is one of the most challenging and important parts of the job." // Click here to read the latest article from Wayside President & CEO, Terry Davis, for Smart Business Magazine's August Issue.
What a special morning for individuals from Wayside's Pathways Day Programs, our staff, and friends from Rising Star Academy! They had the amazing opportunity to hit, throw and catch out on the field just like the pros. A big thank you to our partners Cleveland Indians, Dream Days Ohio, and Diamond Boys Baseball Club for making this memorable experience possible. Everyone had a blast!
Congratulations to these employees on completing our Management Training Program! We look forward to seeing each of them grow within their new role here at Wayside. More than 90% of our management team began their career with the agency as a Direct Support Professional. Proud of their continued hard work and dedication.
A Message From Wayside President & CEO, Terry Davis...
Our Lady of the Wayside is thrilled to announce that it will be moving its administrative offices to our former Guadalupe Facility. Months of renovations have been readying the space to for the 50 employees staffing our Finance, Human Resources, I.T., Facilities and Development teams, as well as my office. This move is something we’ve worked toward for almost 10 years and during that time, the imagined administrative facility has enjoyed any number of working titles – chief among which has been Wayside World Headquarters.
It really does have a nice ring.
That said, moving has a way of compelling you to define what’s essential and leave the rest. This process has confirmed for us that the essence of Wayside is the agency’s wonderfully enduring concept of “home.” Our Lady of the Wayside began quite simply – and profoundly - as one home that supported one person with special needs. More than 50 years later, that one home is now 90 homes, with 4 Pathways Day Program sites, and a 160+ vehicle transportation fleet that all join together to support 900 children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Wayside has come a long way and after this move, you’ll find us at The Home Office.
Much thanks to everyone who has worked to make Our Lady of the Wayside, Home to Opportunity!
