let's Get Started

To help us understand what you want to accomplish, here's our approach:

In an introductory conversation we will learn about you, answer any questions you have about us, and together think through options that might best address the challenge/opportunity you see ahead.
We bring many years of experience working with hundreds of organizations to the conversation. Our goal is to utilize this learning as we address the unique situation of your organization.

If we agree it makes sense to work together we will develop and agree upon a process with clear deliverables to get you where you want to be.

We were very fortunate to have found an interim director. The experience, ability to deal with ambiguity, lead a team, involve others, and deliver on the execution of plans, was instrumental on the successful journey that followed. The interim jumped into this challenge with thoroughness and thoughtfulness.  

Board Executive Committee member

Banfield Charitable Trust, and VP Elanco Corp

quote icon

Our interim brought expertise and breadth of knowledge in nonprofit management, providing day to day management of the organization and bringing attention to hot issues. This gave the board a ‘reality check’ on our current status and where we needed to go. By hiring an interim executive director, I was able to focus my energies on the work of the board and the eventual search for the next ED.

Board Chair

Bradley Angle House

At the time we engaged the interim ED, the board was frustrated, anxious and concerned with the direction we were heading.  Our interim immediately calmed the board, listened closely to the staff and reassured them during this sensitive time, and help us plan to stabilize the organization.  It was an excellent choice to bring on a professional with nonprofit expertise and such communication and management skills.

Board Member/Vice Chair

Chehalem Cultural Center

Our interim ED provided needed leadership during a critical time of transition—leadership that the board and senior staff were unable to provide. The scope and deliverables were established in advance so real work was getting done. During this transition we adopted a strategic plan, met our budget goals in a tough economy, met program goals, and guided the organization through the transition to the new Executive Director.
