Before we ever start planning a business strategy, I get to know your business. I then work collaboratively with you and your team to come to consensus about the way forward.
I stick around to help execute the plan and provide support for everyone involved to get past any obstacles along the way.
Nonprofits are interesting. And to be successful, the board and staff must be aligned and working toward a realistic, compelling mission.
Before I ever start planning, I get to know the organization via in-depth interviews of the board and staff. Once I know the organization, then we get everyone to consensus and create a strategic plan to move the organization forward.
I remain on hand to ensure everyone – board and staff – have what they need to execute the plan and power past roadblocks.

Training helps your team learn to build on their strengths and understand themselves and their co-workers better. I provide training to help teams to be more effective, reduce drama, and build a strong culture.
I utilize my 25+ years of experience in economic development to assist organizations in creating effective economic development strategy, recruiting and retention of businesses, and interim CEO services.
