Partner for Change fosters positive change and thriving through diverse partnerships with organizations, teams, and individuals. I love designing consulting engagements and interactive meetings that will unleash creativity and collaboration within your organization or community to address many topics, including:
Visioning, values identification, and strategy development
Collaborative and transparent leadership models
Effective board governance
Networks in organizational design and practice
Community empowerment for community change
Building a culture of philanthropy and giving
Bridging cultural divides
Alternative synagogue membership models
Trained in the Appreciative Inquiry methodology, I bring an appreciative orientation to the design of consulting partnerships, applying the philosophy and tools of the AI 4-D cycle and similar methodologies, including Design Thinking.
I also offer individual or packaged strategy sessions for organizational leaders and teams. Some people call this coaching, but I realized that my strong suit is not as a coach working from behind, but rather as someone who is actively at the table looking for solutions alongside my clients, thinking through different ideas, and proposing alternatives.
Depending on the nature of the partnership, fees may be structured hourly or by project. For nonprofit organizations, I can help guide applications for capacity-building grants that support the partnership. Prospective partners receive a free introductory meeting via phone or Skype, or in-person, followed by a written proposal detailing the scope of the partnership.
