Strategic Consulting

Propel Nonprofits strategic consultants identify your organization’s key role related to community impact, develop key strategies in the context of your competitive environment, and create strategic decision frameworks from which your organization will evaluate future opportunities. We also help organizations conduct succession planning to prepare in advance for the departure and replacement of top leaders – even when those leaders aren’t planning to go anywhere soon.

Our consultants are experienced facilitators to help plan and host retreats and other gatherings of boards of directors, leadership teams, and partnerships.

Board Development

Your organization benefits when board members engage with one another to develop healthy governance practices and an effective structure.

Our Strategic Board Development includes a confidential self-assessment, created and administered to board members and the executive director, followed by a review and discussion of the results, training, and a board development action plan. Sometimes boards seek a more transformative development that requires more than one training session.

We also can coach you on the how to build your board with the right tools and processes, including the processes related to recruiting new board members.

Leadership Development

We work with leaders, both experienced or emerging, to help them access their best thinking, build productive relationships, and navigate change effectively through Leaders Circles®.

Leaders Circles®

Leaders Circles® are a proven way to develop leadership strengths. Our Leaders Circles® program accommodates the needs of both emerging and C-suite leaders. Circles create the environment that allows you to confidentially discuss challenges and ideas, test ideas before “taking them public,” identify solutions to challenging situations, and network with others who face similar issues.

Circles are comprised of 5-7 leaders at similar points on their leadership journeys who commit to participate for one year. Circles meet once monthly during the work day, for up to three hours. A trained, experienced coach works with each group.
