A few of our favorite things

Executive Director & Board Chair Coaching


Our primary consulting focus is the critical relationship between Board Chairs and Executive Directors/Heads of School. We provide leadership coaching - one on one sessions for board leadership and organizational heads to promote confidence, effective communication and the ability to stimulate others to action.

Board Development Strategies


We provide nonprofit consulting in the areas of: building an effective board, training around board roles and responsibilities, effective committee structure, powerful board/head teamwork and constituent communication.

Strategic Planning and Mission/Vision Facilitation


We provide support for imagining and creating an effective strategic plan in the areas of fundraising, capital needs/building and grounds, board and staff development, budgeting, and institutional growth.

Fund Development


Planning for short term and long term fundraising strategies, including data management, annual plans, capital and endowment needs, special events, grants and board/volunteer engagement.

Retreat Facilitation


We can assist with planning and facilitation of organizational and board retreats, with an emphasis on communication, goal setting, consensus-building and relationships.
