1. Core Mission
Because Dr. ---- ---------- is the founder of MB, her mission is the core mission of the whole organization: To create one-of-a-kind, multicultural performances by world-class, internationally renowned classical, jazz, and ethnic folk musicians and performing artists, for the benefit of the public and at-risk youth, while fostering San Antonio’s reputation as a cosmopolitan cultural center and promoting tourism and development.
2. Organization Structure
Musical Bridges is departmentalized by function since it is a small organization with only a handful of paid employees. Given the nature of a nonprofit (spreading the word and selling your mission to others) it makes sense that the employees are structured to have similar job functions working to brand and promote the organization and its events.
One of her goals this year is to bring performances to 25 public schools, mainly Title I schools on the South side of San Antonio. Another goal of hers is to successfully start an annual music festival, starting with a partnership with the Trinity University Music Department next semester. These are just some of the goals the she has envisioned along with the efforts of her Board of Directors. She often listens to the ideas of her Board of Directors and Trustees in order to somehow bring life to projects that are near and dear to them.
Her personal style of leadership would definitely be the Team Management style of Blake and Mouton’s Managerial Grid
