Nonprofits are mission-driven organizations. The missions are about impacting and improving livability. The work is essential and exhausting. The organizational health of boards, executive directors, and the teams will determine the level of wellbeing for the organization and ultimately the clients they serve. It’s all connected.
Developing a nonprofit organization that is resilient requires awareness and practical strategies to implement, even when resources feel scarce. The answer is sustainable practices and principles that guide the board, the executive director, and the team in doing what is relevant with greater intention, rather than doing more with less. The impact on the mission accomplished and resiliency of the people behind the mission is powerful.
The work done with Sandy provides a pathway to identify areas of vulnerability and strengths. Those discoveries, along with research-based steps, can minimize the gaps and expand the good. This dynamic invites participants to see their work, their contribution, from a new lens and engage in a transformational way. This reframe results in a collective impact that grows, protects, and represents the mission and elevates wellbeing in tangible ways that increase success with recruitment, retention, and engagement of staff, board members, funders, and potential partners.

“Sandy’s coaching [and training] has been an integral part of our on-boarding leadership process. When we truly know ourselves, we feel more equipped to lead a team by leveraging our strengths. Sandy’s insight really allows you to pause and reflect about yourself and find ways to make every day count. Personally and professionally – I can truly say I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her wisdom.”
