What stepping away from leadership taught me about the organisation I founded

It’s late in the evening, and an unmistakable air of tension can be felt around the table. Six board members are debating a topic crucial to the organisation’s future.

The organisation is OIC Cambodia, a non-profit I founded in Cambodia in 2013 to establish speech therapy as a profession for the over 600,000 Cambodians estimated to need it.

While the debate’s being conducted respectfully, it’s clear that each person believes they are right. Brows furrow in opposition. Counter-arguments scratch at the backs of throats. No one appears ready to back down.
