Abstract: Fellowship Health Resources

This case study of Fellowship Health Resources illustrates the importance of being open-minded and flexible as you fill your organization's leadership gaps.

Executive searches can be very complex. Sometimes—despite careful thought, preparation, and execution—a search can reveal that what you thought your organization desperately needed is not what it really needed after all.

Fellowship Health Resources is a Rhode Island-based mental health services agency. In this case study, Fellowship Chief Executive Officer Joe Dziobek explains how his organization’s search for the perfect chief operating officer helped him gain clarity on what the Fellowship really needed and made him realize that a COO was not the best way to fill those needs. Instead, Fellowship Health Resources decided to reorganize its management team, promoting two existing managers into newly created director of operations positions for the Southeast and Northeast regions.
