“We had to improve the performance of the organization because lives were in the balance.”
– Joe Roth, CEO, NJ Sharing Network
In this episode of The Pivotal Leader, Gina Trimarco spoke to Joseph (Joe) Roth, president and CEO of NJ Sharing Network, the nonprofit organization that saves lives through organ and tissue donation in New Jersey and one of the few non-profits that is “excruciatingly regulated” by federal law.
He has fostered a culture of selflessness, where each of the 180+ employees feel a sense of responsibility for the success of the organization, and more importantly, for the lives that depend on it.
In this podcast interview, Joe talks about how he and his leadership team have built a collaborative and team-focused environment in an organization with highly stressful and emotional jobs.
Podcast Topics Include:
- Recruiting people based on company mission
- Recruiting for high stress positions
- Developing a set of core values that are cornerstone to business
- Hiring consultants to develop effective leadership teams
- The importance of trust and accountability for leaders
- Eliminating the “command and control” leadership style
