31: Creating a Runway to Freedom with Lara Williams

Do you wake up feeling unfocused, unsure what to work on first or what direction to take your business in?


My client, Lara Williams, is joining me in this episode to talk about how we’ve created what I love to call a Runway to Freedom to clear all of those up.


A Runway to Freedom could mean a lot of different things to different organizations, but in this case, it meant creating an operating system to help bring back excitement, energy, accountability, and growth in Lara’s business.


Lara is talking about what the business looked like before, what the struggles were, and what areas we worked on. You’ll hear how we reorganized meetings, positions, hiring processes, and more to create a business structure that could handle growth. 


Lara Williams, InteCare Chief Operating Officer, has 20 years of experience working in community mental health developing programs and training that focus on recovery and a person-centered approach. Since her start at InteCare in 2010, she has helped to establish the CARF-accredited Supportive Services for Veteran Families program and developed and supervised a 2nd Chance Re-entry Grant in collaboration with the Indiana Department of Correction. Lara was key in establishing Allies of Indiana, a peer-run organization with a focus on bringing innovative peer-run initiatives to Indiana, and has served as their Executive Director for 9 years. During her tenure, she has helped the organization to become a national leader in Emotional CPR (eCPR) training, receiving multi-year grants from the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction to provide eCPR training across Indiana, assisting with the development of eCPR Canada and the development of a Youth eCPR model.
