The Team

At The Open Table, we operate within a consensus-based leadership style - meaning that decisions are made primarily through unity as a leadership team. This style can lead to a slower organizational pace at times, but we choose this approach believing that the slower pace provides the space for more effective decisions and better health for our leadership team and, subsequently, for those we serve.
