James Oliverio, VSA Client, former head of technology for a major US investment bank, took on leadership in his Westchester community. He is now the founder and CEO of IdeaBOX LLC.
Oliverio ran for and got appointed to his local school board. He immediately applied VSA Coaching: he took a stand, publicly declared what the schools can cause: create and fulfill a bold future, and do that much more efficiently and effectively as to resources, and deliver a bold, public purpose to inspire the whole town.
That business as usual would continue to drag on. Union negotiations would take forever (3 years!); costs would be high; and no one would be reading from the same page. People would continue to lack inspiration and the “juice” of a bold future.
Jim got on the Board, and took a bold public stand that anything is possible if we say so.
He used the VSA distinction, “Enrollment,” to transform what had been a lackluster and vague
statement of purpose into a simple, bold statement—Our education is: “A promise to
prepare for tomorrow.”
People are inspired, once again, and open to discover a new purpose, in action, day-to-day.
The Union negotiations went from a customary 3 years and $100,000.00 in legal fees to
3 months and $1200.00, consummated entirely without lawyers.
Jim has been invited to run for office.
