As a consultant, I can bring my experience into new settings to help redesign systems around people and support pathways to sustain the work. I will spark new ways to envision the work to reach the big goals we are all trying to achieve together.
Develop strategic plans and program models with people at the center.
I will use person-centered, sense-making engagements to help organizations and teams illuminate the current state of their work… and see what’s possible. Together, we will grapple with key question: What do I need to contribute my full self? What do we need to collaborate beyond our current state? How do our systems, policies, and structures need to change to sustain progress over time?
Seek out and reset the everyday patterns of systemic racism.
Build a thriving culture and dismantle systemic racism from programs and organizations.
As a consultant, I can help organizations illuminate the ways patterns of systemic racism unintentionally flow through their work culture and their programs. With an anti-racism approach, talk can lead to action. Feedback can lead to deeper understanding. And new insight can help leaders — both formal and everyday leaders — to shift day-to-day practices toward a more inclusive work environment and more effective, equitable programs. I will support teams to come together through the difficult conversations and coach leaders to grow and develop in their role.
Seek and secure resources to get there.
As you reimagine your workflow and identify the investment into your people needed to move you toward your big vision, I can help you secure new resources. From targeting the right sources to capturing the powerful story of your organization, resource development will flow right from your strategy planning.
In my work over the past decade, I noticed elements that are common to finding success in improving practices and creating change in the social sector (non-profits, schools, etc):
These change elements can be intentionally nourished and developed. We need to get underneath the surface of the work and cultivate the soil so the programs, strategies, collaborations will truly take root.
As a consultant, I will help identify and support how these change elements are coming to life in your setting to create better outcomes within a program, organization, or system. Looking comprehensively at both the strategy and the culture–the structure and the people–leads to sustainable progress.
