The culture amongst most staff, coordinator to sr. manager level is good. Many staff are not local to Colorado Springs, thus staff at these levels become friends quickly as many don't have local friends. My small department was close and generally worked very well together, despite inconsistent direction from leadership. Working in sports at the Olympic/Paralympic Movement is fun and provides lots of opportunities to network and build relationships amongst other sports.
Guidance and direction from leadership can be lacking, especially in the past year or so. Leadership tends to make a lot of knee-jerk reactions and doesn't often listen to feedback from the coordinators to Sr. Managers who are doing most of the work and connect most closely and regularly with constituents. With the recent changes to most of the executive leadership, there was a lot less effort by new leaders to connect with their entry to mid-level staff than in the past. It is disappointing as there is a lot of good ideas brought forth from that level that often get overlooked or dismissed.
