*Strategic Visioning

Strategic Planning is so pre-pandemic. If COVID has taught us anything, it’s the need to be nimble, flexible, and adaptive. What if we began to think of Strategy through a Visioning lens rather than a Planning lens? Visioning is so much more aspirational and fun. I can help you shift the way you think about the What’s Next and create a dynamic Strategic Vision…with plans to make it happen.

*Organizational Development & Alignment

Looking to build your organization’s capacity to have greater impact? It’s very likely your organization has the brilliance within itself to make that happen…and I can help you identify the opportunities, strategize to overcome the challenges, and bring new life and focus to your work.

*Board Development

Oh yeah. The thing nonprofit leaders don’t like to say out loud: there’s tension on the Board and/or between the Board and Staff. I’ve experienced it myself. Passionate, well-intended folks trying to find their rhythm so they can get things done. Wonder how you can bring your teams into alignment, to focus on the Right Things, so meaningful work can happen? I’ve got strategies to make it happen.

*Resource Abundance

More?! I’m trying to get to enough!” Oh, how pervasive that scarcity mentality is among so many nonprofits – about time, about talent, and certainly about money. Want to operate with a commitment to abundance? I can help you refocus your attention and to develop strategies that build on what you have so you can create even more. Yes, even more money and who doesn’t love more?!

*Culture Creation

Are you elevating equity, activating diversity, leading inclusively, and building belonging throughout your organization and the programs you are developing? I can help you be intentional about infusing these values into your organizational DNA…and when you do, you’ll be amazed at what you can create.

*Communication

What are you saying and how are you saying it – to your team, your constituents, your donors? When there’s a clear and demonstrated commitment to direct and authentic communication your team will be more aligned, your constituents more connected, and your donors more engaged! BOOM – Magic! Let me help you make it happen.

Leadership Coaching

*Nonprofit Executives

There’s only one CEO/Executive Director chair and if you’re here, you’re likely sitting in it and that can be a very lonely place. Want to get to the open space of big thinking and creativity but the day-to-day is getting in the way? I can help you tap into your brilliance to get you there.

*Board Leadership

Board member engagement, effective governance, executive management, strategic visioning…at the same time…as a volunteer! Yep, it’s a challenge. If you’re in that seat, you may have found yourself herding cats with competing interests. I’m here to support you bringing your priorities into focus and aligning your resources, so you make the magic happen…and have a life outside your volunteer work!

*Emerging Leaders

Have you landed in a Director’s Office and find yourself wondering, “ummm, ok. Now what?” I can help you embrace the brilliance that got you there, draw it out in others, and align your intentions with your attention so you can create your own brand of Director level magic

*Teams

Is your team tired, rundown, listless? Does their performance poop-out? Are they all-over-the-place? Do you find yourself managing personalities rather than purpose? I can support you – and them – in aligning the brilliance of the team in support of your strategic initiatives so the team can thrive…and so you can breathe.
