for Teams & Organizations
Lots of organizations are goal setters.
Few are goal getters.
We know what makes the difference.
What Goal Getter Strategy Development Does for You
Clarity about present reality is rare.
You can’t get to Point B unless you’re clear on Point A and the underlying reasons for the gap between the two.
Clarity equals power. Power is the ability to act.
We help you set clear goals and articulate what achieving them will look like.
Ordinary things, consistently done, produce extraordinary results.
We provide tools to support implementation, and re-alignment sessions that help you re-commit or adjust.
The Goal Getter Process
Smart Start to get clear on the process, who does what and what success looks like
Context Capture to understand the internal and external factors influencing your strategic plan
Map It to get clear on where you want to go and how you’ll get there
Make It Real so that you’re a goal getter with effective implementation tools

Case Study: Metro Solutions
Metro Solutions, a nonprofit fiscal intermediary serving Southeastern Michigan, faced a changing competitive landscape and over-reliance on a single, large client. They wanted to understand what makes them different from others offering similar services and identify opportunities for growth across Michigan, the Midwest and nationally.
CSR Communications listened to Metro Solutions’ initial request to produce a white paper on fiscal sponsorship to raise their visibility. After digging deeper to learn why they wanted that, we collaborated with them to define a better strategy.
By conducting a market assessment, including current and prospective client interviews and competitor analysis; convening three work sessions with the Metro Solutions team to map out dreams, goals, opportunities and challenges; and identifying a clear growth path based on market opportunities and their new positioning, we were able to support them to their goals.
CSR Communications’ thorough research and assessment of our competitive environment and unique contribution to clients helped us make key decisions about our future. The team is not only detail-oriented and prompt, but also flexible, helping us keep on track and on task. They even made a referral for our service delivery, which resulted in a new client for us.
What Our Clients Say…
Our new strategic plan fits my overall need to make sense of our work and connect the dots between our vision-mission and all the activity we do in the community. 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.
