Focus

With so many demands on non-profit leaders, working with our consultants ensures quality time is spent on key actions that teach and nurture generosity among leadership and constituents.

Plans

Whether last year was successful or not, updating your annual stewardship plan or your strategic goals keeps your organization moving forward. Working with our consultants can keep you from stalling out.

In addition, like 2020, 2021 has been a difficult year. Checking in on staff and providing staff care can go a long way to staff retention and success for the new year. Burned out staff have trouble setting and owning goals that will take the organization to the next phase or level. In this roundtable we will discuss ways to provide much needed staff care that improves and informs a true end of year evaluation.
