I think a tree is a wonderful metaphor and the roots are the foundational pieces of the organization. Here’s where the values sit. Here’s where the founder’s vision sits. Here’s where maybe the mission sits. And then as you start to grow, as your organizational identity becomes more mature, you determine who are the clients we’re going to serve. What’s the geographic area? What are some of the programs we’re going to be delivering? And those are the branches. Those are the leaves, the different programs.
