The MOST important responsibility for the national MOT organisations is to implement the MOT Concept.
Top 5 assignments:
• Implementing MOT’s programmes in the best possible way – to as many schools/youth as possible
• Recruiting and educating the right local MOT coaches and school managements
• Building good internal cultures – both centrally and locally
• Ensuring a MOTy reputation, experience and profile/expression/image
• Financing and ensuring healthy and efficient operations/optimized use of resources
The MOT countries' management is MOT Foundation’s outstretched arm in reinforcing MOT's programmes, implementation and internationalization.
Three very important roles in the national top management are the Chairperson, CEO and CAD.
CAD is short for Core Activity Director. MOT’s CADs are responsible for MOT’s mission (“the artistic” – “the art of MOT”). CEO can have double meaning: Chief Executive Officer and Communication Executive Officer. MOT’s CEOs are usually responsible for finances, administration, organisation and communication. The CEOs and CADs together carry the paramount responsibility for the development of MOT in their countries. It’s natural that both roles have responsibility for MOT’s growth, meaning that the number of schools and youth in MOT's programmes is increasing. CEO and CAD are preferably equally ranked top leaders, and MOT Foundation recomends that both roles report to the Board. The Chairperson is appointed by MOT Foundation and is the main keeper, safeguard and responsible for MOT’s Comprehensive System in the country.
All three roles are recognizable as 'MOTy' persons with the right spirit, who feels very 'at home' within MOT's Comprehensive System and with working in the balance between freedom and a clear concept frame.
