The Power of a Mission

Christine Benninger, Humane Society of Silicon Valley
In conversation with: Michael Dearing, Harrison Metal

If you’re seeking inspiration, you will find it here from Humane Society Silicon Valley’s President, Christine Benninger. She describes the organization as she inherited it as a cesspool, rife with drug dealing staff, disorderly management, sour community relations, and cruel animal care. She recalls her quickly orchestrated six-month plan to keep the organization afloat – and how dire circumstances made her monumentally more creative and successful.
