THINK BIG, START SMALL™

ORGANIZATIONAL CONSULTING SERVICES

Partnering for Change

We help foundations, government agencies and other mission-driven organizations design and re-design existing leadership training programs. We also help organizations clarify their visions of success and we brainstorm with them to develop new strategies to help them achieve those visions.

We have helped foundations:

♦ By working with them to re-design their approaches to philanthropic giving

♦ By helping their senior staff members clarify their own visions of success and re-write their job descriptions

♦ By bringing together some of their grantees from the same community to explore opportunities for collaboration

♦ By bringing together some of their grantees from different parts of the same state to develop a “Building On Success” approach

 

We have worked with many other mission-driven organizations to:

♦ Custom design engagement initiatives for them

♦ Help their staff clarify their visions of success and troubleshoot thorny challenges

♦ Help them design their own leadership initiatives

♦ Build stronger connections among staff and between staff and board members
