But--working as an executive director myself taught me what it’s like to live that role.
Nonprofit leaders are running their organizations, supporting their teams, fulfilling their missions and responsibilities to their donors, volunteers and clients, AND, often times, handling immense stress in their personal life.
And women, in particular, face their own set of unique challenges on top of that.
I’ve taken the lessons I learned, the successes I had, and the mistakes I made and created a framework--along with the tools and solid support system--you need to grow and be taken seriously as a leader.

Your unconscious brain controls 90% of your decisions. It impacts and can distort how you perceive yourself and how you see the world. This is the foundation of your success and impact as a leader, and will unleash your potential and make you feel confident in your work and vision. Together we’ll cast a clear and exciting vision of what success and fulfillment as a leader looks for you.
By assessing your unique set of values, strengths, skills, and talents, we will identify your "Leadership Advantage--the intersection of who you are, how you relate to and inspire others, your vision for your organization and the difference you want to make as a leader. This is your superpower or special sauce as a leader. It is both what makes you unique and allows you to work and lead in a more natural and authentic way.
Identifying what you want and need to perform at your highest level will inform where and how you will set boundaries as a leader. This process will not only make you more effective, it will also enable you to show up with more confidence and authority as a leader. From there, you will discover tools and practices to empower your communication and negotiation style, your ability to relate to and manage others, as well as your ability to give and receive feedback. This will set the tone for your voice as a leader.
Your organization has a strategic plan, and now you will too. This plan is the culmination of what we've uncovered to this point--your identity as a leader, your strengths, goals, vision, and your leadership advantage. These pieces along with your role and responsibilities within your organization will drive what your strategic growth plan will look like. This plan will serve to keep you on track regardless of what curveballs or chaos comes your way, and it will serve as your anchor or roadmap over the next year.
We often underestimate--and as a result, don't prioritize--the importance of personal time, self-care, and attention to our own physical and mental wellbeing. But the truth is, these are the foundational building blocks of our ability to thrive as leaders, and more importantly, of our personal happiness and fulfillment. Together we will create an ongoing, concrete support system that takes into account your many roles and responsibilities, both at work and at home, so it can serve as a resource and "go to" guide whenever you need it for years to come.
