What's Your Captivating Communication Advantage?

Women Nonprofit Leaders...

Spaghetti is great for dinner but not for walls…or your nonprofit

The hardest part of your role should be fundraising and fulfilling your mission. But the truth is, without a supportive, engaged board, you may feel like you’re throwing spaghetti at the wall.

I help women nonprofit leaders build productive dialogue with their boards, so they can navigate challenges and manage conflicts while growing their nonprofits.

If you're struggling with board conflict or difficult personalities, I can help you build a board culture that is engaged and supportive, so you can go from board members who...

Undervalue your opinion

Take you seriously as a leader

Constantly try to micromanage

Trust in your ability to lead

Monopolize discussions

Look to you for guidance

Hi I'm Elizabeth - I help women-nonprofit leaders speak up and show up with confidence

I’m a Leadership Coach with 12+ years serving nonprofits, lover of dark chocolate and a healthy, high-functioning board.

And I also know what it’s like to be in your position. You want to change the world but some days you’re so busy, you barely have time to change your socks...

You have the ability and the commitment it takes to drive change. But if board challenges, conflicts or personality clashes are compromising your progress, it’s time to shift your board’s culture and rebalance the power dynamic.

Starting out as an executive director, I needed someone to say..."This is your roadmap." Because being a nonprofit leader is hard.

Like you, I've grappled with the questions that keep every nonprofit leader awake at night...

How do I get my board to work with me and not against me when they’re micromanaging?

How can I raise more money and find time for this important mission when we’re so busy fire-fighting and reacting?

How can I get my ideas heard and take back command as a leader?

Ready to Level Up The Way You’re Showing Up As a Leader?

I partner with women nonprofit leaders to build collaborative board cultures so they can focus on building their impact and growing their organizations.

Our work together will give you:

A framework to build a board culture that prioritizes collaboration and engagement so you can drive change.

The tools to rebalance the power dynamic on your board so you are seen, heard and taken seriously as a leader.

A step-by-step process to transform a dysfunctional board into an effective one so you have a solid support structure.

The resources to build a strong leadership presence so you can handle the tough conversations and difficult personalities.

 how to do it.
Because your greatest challenge should be growing your mission–not wrangling with your board over

"Elizabeth is an excellent coach who helped me in several areas of my work life. She is warm, open, encouraging and non-judgmental, and her process gave me the framework and confidence to have some really hard conversations I had been putting off until now."
