We specialize in helping Boards learn how they can best support their organization. We review bylaws and make recommendations for updates, review responsibilities and explore the power dynamics that may be getting in the way of a more collaborative approach to leadership.
Organizational Health Assessments are a comprehensive guide to the state of your organization, including interviews with staff, board, and other stakeholders, and culminating with a full report and implementation plan for bolstering what's going well and improving what isn't.
See our companion website for more details.
If your organization is considering shifting away from the solo Executive model, we can help you think through your options and prepare your staff and Board for the transition. We have extensive links with more background on why you might consider this transition, and what it can look like and offer.
