A non-profit leader – a leader like any other?

By Michel Mornet, Anne Yannic, Marc Gosselin

A non-profit leader – a leader like any other?

We sat down with Loïc Luisetto, GM of the non-profit, Lazare. Loïc recently participated in the leadership development program “Cycle des Hautes Etudes de Service Public,” (CHESP) run by Turningpoint.    

“To me, this program allowed me to discover the French Administration meet many fascinating people. Thanks to these encounters, I was able to get through some red tape and unblock complicated situations for Lazar. What struck me the most, was the quality of the Turningpoint coaches, who, through their extraordinary commitment, successfully created a momentum and engagement among the participants throughout the program. 

Since 2017, 15 non-profit leaders have joined this program, which is designed for senior government officials. This program is led by the Interministerial Delegation for Senior Government officials – Prime Minister’s Office (Délégation interministérielle à l’encadrement supérieur de l’État – Services du Premier Ministre). 

This experience will truly shape Loïc’s career as a leader! 

A few words on Lazare 

Lazare organizes and develops shared housing between homeless people and young professionals. Established in 2006, the solidarity houses are present in a dozen cities in France, 11 in total and in 5 countries (Mexico, Switzerland, Spain and Belgium). Today, there are more than 250 people living in Lazare’s shared housing. 

Positive results: 98% of the Lazare residents feel accepted as they are today whereas they were only 15% before Lazare, 85% of the residents say they have a personal or professional project today whereas they were only 25% before arriving at Lazare and finally, and finally 75% of the residents who suffer from an addiction feel supported. 

Participating in the “Solidarity Leader” program  

This initiative offers non-profit leaders the opportunity to benefit from a high-quality program to develop their talents. It is also an opportunity to bring two different worlds together. Turningpoint is proud to have deployed this initiative with leaders from Orange, L’Oréal, the French Administration, to mention a few. It is an opportunity for these leaders to gain self-awareness, develop leadership skills, and to strengthen their professional network with leaders from other sectors.

Transformational Leadership

Turningpoint’s approach to transformation is based on the systemic, appreciative and narrative methods of resource-oriented collective intelligence, as opposed to the more traditional corrective approach. These approaches and tools can be deployed for teams and large groups.
