Coaching for Clarity and Confidence

Nonprofit Clients

I am committed to supporting nonprofit organizations and prioritize dedicating 20% of my time to coaching them at discounted or pro bono rates. Nonprofit leadership can be challenging due to their mission-driven values and culture, but they share many similarities with for-profit organizations. To Nonprofits must prioritize strategic planning, effective leadership, and staff development in order to succeed.
