Annual Report 2011 One Lesson Inspires One Leader: Gregory Haile



Attorney Gregory Haile is a Columbia Law School graduate who practices commercial litigation with the law firm of Berger Singerman. He is a past president of the T.J. Reddick Bar Association, and sits on the Seventeenth Circuit Court’s grievance committee. And yet all his professional and academic achievements had not prepared him for the full scope of his role as chair of 2-1-1 First Call for Help. 2-1-1 is Broward’s central health and human services referral system, receiving more than 130,000 calls in 2010 for services.
Already an active community citizen, Greg sought out the Community Foundation of Broward’s Leadership Institute to enable him to be the most effective board chair he could be.
“The Leadership Institute’s Board Chair Network connected me with other nonprofit chairs to meet and discuss how to chart the best course for nonprofit growth and effectiveness,” Haile said. “I learned a lot from the content of the Community Foundation’s sessions and from my peers working hard to lead other organizations – it is a fantastic resource that allows the sharing of knowledge and cooperation on important issues.”
“I’m a better board leader because of those sessions and that means 2-1-1 is a better provider to those in need in Broward.”
Greg is not alone in this experience, this year he was one of 900 others, representing 60 unique organizations that worked with the Leadership Institute. Just like Greg, 94 percent of those who attend Leadership Institute programs report increased skills or tools around best leadership and management practices, and 90 percent said they have implemented those skills to improve operations or service-delivery. 
Working together, these leaders will create one community defined and enriched by great nonprofit leadership.
