I was recently elected president of our homeowners association and am bringing a new kind of leadership to the community and Board of Directors. The philosophy I put forth is "Investing for an Outcome!" The idea is to increase the number of residents who are in compliance to the Community Guidelines through information, explanation, encouragement, and only lastly, enforcement, instead of attempting head on to eliminate the non-compliance through intimidation to pound on people for a solution. On the way out the door at the close of our last BOD meeting, one member of the Board looked at me and said, "Good meeting!" Then he said, "But you are funny." I think he meant to say "You're different!" Or maybe not!
