Working with social purpose organizations to grow their impact and solve serious social problems

About Us

We help internal change leaders in social purpose organizations to influence and persuade others, so that they can realize their vision for change faster, with less frustration and resistance.

Custom Programs

Using our proprietary processes for strategy development (Goal Getter), message development & communication (Mine the Essence) and board development (Board Booster) we enable social purpose leaders to get their entire organization on the same page, change minds and influence behavior, and finally break through barriers to growth.

We are proud to work with these fine clients…

It will help us have meaningful and productive board-staff conversations in the future, as it provides the framework we need to make the hard decisions. Nancy’s process was flexible in meeting the diverse needs of board members and the staff while getting us to a great result in a reasonable timeframe.

5 Signs Your Meetings Need a Makeover

When was the last time you heard someone say, “I love meetings!”? My guess is, probably never. In fact, I doubt you’ve said it yourself, even about the meetings you lead. My theory is that people don’t hate meetings. They just hate bad meetings – and, sadly, most...
