Case Study: Providing Interim Leadership

Gay Men’s Health Crisis

Problem Statement: A leadership change occurred in the Gay Men’s Health Crisis’ (GMHC) HIV testing and prevention program department. The organization needed time to conduct a comprehensive and thoughtful search for the most qualified professional for this role. In addition, performance problems had emerged in one of the programs that required immediate attention.

Solution: Marta served as the Interim Director of GMHC’s David Geffen Center for HIV Prevention and Health Education for three months. She provided day-to-day program, financial and performance improvement direction. An intention to focus and build on staff strengths led to recommendations to re-assign one of the excellent existing managers to lead operations of the HIV testing center. Marta developed tracking systems for monitoring multiple performance improvement projects and was an active participant in discussions with a major federal funder about the future of the programs.

The Results: GMHC selected an excellent leader to guide its HIV prevention efforts into the future. Staff re-connected with their commitment to the work and performance began to improve.
