A strong and resourceful board, working in partnership with organizational leadership, is crucial to the success of a nonprofit. Yet so often board development can be an on-again-off-again proposition, disconnected to organizational strategy or growth. This series of workshops focuses on identifying, attracting, cultivating and retaining the board members who are best positioned to support your nonprofit’s mission and programming into the future.
A Community Listening Tour is a unique tool to help funders and community leaders gain greater clarity on issues of local importance. Listening Tours provide a neutral and intentional process for learning about community needs and perspectives by engaging ALL voices equally. Designed to gather knowledge through discovery, learning and listening, this process provides valuable insights that are often crucial to guaranteeing buy-in and success for new initiatives.
Organizational Coaching within the nonprofit structure supports the mission and vision of an organization by prioritizing engagement with its larger eco-system and culture. While still incorporating one-on-one interactions, this program goes beyond serving the needs of a single individual leader. This model offers solutions that are unique to nonprofits. Examples include navigating the ED/CEO and board chair relationship, strengthening team learning to ensure program growth, and helping avoid burnout.

By practicing thoughtful, advanced planning with a clear assessment of needs, then conducting a skillful search, organizations can set the groundwork for a successful and seamless transition. Once a new leader has been hired, a well designed onboarding and training process ensures that they will be prepared to hit the ground running with their new roles and responsibilities.
