Interim management services are provided when an organization expereinces a temporary loss of an executive level position.  As this service is typically requested when an agency is undergoing a leadership transition, the placement timeframe is typically 2 to 6 months or until a new permanent executive is hired.  The timeframe is very flexible and is tailored to the specific needs of the organization.

Leadership Development and Coaching

In the nonprofit world, we recognize that resources, human and financial, are often very limited.  People in key positions often wear many hats and are sometimes thrust into various roles.  This can result in inadequate training and preparation for key positions. 

Our services are designed to help develop mid and/or senior level leaders/managers.  Through guidance and support, we provide coaching and concrete tools that build your team's management and leadership skills.

Process and Program Evaluation

Efficiency is critical for nonprofit organizations.  When organizations are not efficient, funding is not maximixed.  We can help your organization become more efficient by reviewing your work processes and providing recommendations that will minimize timeframes to complete specific tasks and eliminate duplication.
