Professional Development

Professional development is the gaining of skills and knowledge. It is not only personally gratifying but it helps in career advancement and organizational productivity. Professional development can be completed as an organization, individually, virtually, and self-paced. It involves a commitment of time and an openness and eagerness to grow professionally.

Organizations look for continuous improvement to increase the productivity of their staff and reach common goals. One way to accomplish this is through individual professional development. The opportunity to be a peak performer is rewarding. Participating in sessions such as supervision, leadership, problem solving and decision-making, team building, communication, and managing people will enable employees to become more proficient to carry out their assigned tasks.

Why bring a subject matter expert to your location?

Many organizations offer individuals the opportunity to attend “learning” events. Bringing a professional on site is an option because it enables employees an opportunity to hear the same information so the concepts can be shared and implemented. Some of the benefits are:

  • Shared knowledge base for everyone attending
  • The ability to understand the material individually and as a group
  • Helps employees reach individual professional development goals
  • Increases managerial and supervisory skills
  • No travel expenses for individuals

Non-Profit Consulting

A consultant brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to an organization. External consultants help to guide change in a specific area of an organization. Consultants present fresh ideas and methods for improving specific processes within the organization.

Examining the various aspects of a board of directors or a volunteer program or of the nonprofit in general is a proven method of increased capacity. When assessments are performed and “GAPS” are identified, it is the starting point of enabling the nonprofit to fill in the “GAPS” and move forward with a plan.

Why bring a consultant to your location?

A consultant can examine the systems and processes of your organization with an unbiased point of view. From a strategic plan to volunteer management audit to a board audit, self examination opens the opportunities to build capacity and serve more clients.
