Frequently Asked Questions
What industry do you specialize In?
We take pride in our ability to learn the fundamentals of virtually any industry or technology quickly. Some of the markets we serve include human services, education, youth services, philanthropy, arts and culture, and environment nonprofit and educational institutions. Having said that, we believe that the value we bring to the table is not industry expertise — which you already possess in abundance — but rather an understanding of the tools and strategies that help organizations reach new levels of effectiveness.
What’s the quick rundown on what you do, again?
The core services are coaching and consulting, which means we help companies identify, explore, and solve problems. The end-goal is to help the client understand and improve its position, in terms of evaluating their impact, developing systems and infrastructure, and strengthening leadership and governance.
How do you work?
We prefer to keep things simple and straightforward:
- We start with an initial consultation. This is a free, brief meeting in which we learn about each other and I get a deeper picture of your situation.
- If there’s mutual interest, we work together to scope out a project.
- After that, we execute the standard paperwork and get started.
I'd like to move forward, how do i start?
We look forward to hearing from you.
