Visioning and Positioning

Does your team:

Visioning is a powerful process for engaging your team in articulating and committing to a future direction. Facilitating conversations about a shared vision builds consensus, commitment and excitement for the desired future. Scenario planning enables your team to consider a variety of possible futures and position the organization today to achieve its vision tomorrow.

Strategic Thinking, Planning & Change

Delisle Youth Services Testimonial

Does your leadership:

Strategic thinking and planning keeps an organization connected to its external environment and helps align resources with strategic directions. Involving an external facilitator in these processes can bring structure and build consensus around a shared vision. Creating conditions for change-ability in complex environments is a critical factor for success in implementing strategic directions.

We know many participants wonder what is expected of them at a ‘strategic planning retreat’. Our facilitation approach makes the planning experience tangible, engaging and accessible, particularly for those who are participating in a planning process for the first time. Our understanding of nonprofit sector trends and challenges means we help organizations develop strategy that balances ambition with reality.

Governance Education, Review and Design

MS Society of Canada Testimonial

Does your board:

Governance is in an evolutionary stage: more rigid traditional models don’t often meet the needs of today’s increasingly complex environments. Adaptive or Hybrid Governance Models are emerging as the most viable alternative. Their inherent flexibility allows them to evolve quickly with an organization as it transforms. To learn more about Governance Models contact Ruth for a copy of the article: "Nonprofit Governance Models: Problems and Prospects".

Leadership & Management Development

Does your leadership:

Strategic leadership is critical to an organization’s ability to succeed in complex and dynamic environments. Leaders are responsible for articulating and enacting an organization’s Mission and Vision. Leaders who create a learning and performance culture can engage stakeholders to work collaboratively to attain a shared vision. To embrace and navigate change successfully, leaders need to understand and learn from change in addition to having the core competencies required to nurture change.

Collaboration and Strategic Alliances

Does your organization:

Increasingly, nonprofit agencies have been striving to expand their impact and achieve efficiencies through collaboration and strategic alliances. Working with others can deliver substantial benefits, but places additional stress on organizations’ limited time and resources. Developing productive partnerships requires connecting with the right partners; taking a systems view; engaging diverse perspectives; and co-designing creative processes and structures.
