Strengthening the Capacity of Leaders and their Organizations
Leaders today face immense the immense challenges of complexity of organizational culture, decisions around prioritizing scarce resources, and navigating the loneliness and isolation of leadership.

Deepening Relationships through Listening and Community Discovery
Finding time as a leader today is challenging and often seems to be near impossible. When your time is scarce, the idea of slowing down and listening is stressful. I can help you pause in order to intentionally listen to your stakeholders through a process of discovery. The Discovery process will change your perspective, realign your time and resources, and deepen your relationships with your staff, board, supporters, and community. Listening requires an openness to learning alongside your stakeholders yet produces amazing insights and clarity that can propel your mission toward a vibrant future. The stakeholders of your organization, customers, donors, families, staff, board, or community leaders, are essential partners in advancing your mission.
