It Starts With

We equip leaders to impact their communities through dynamic coaching, innovation, and training.

Home: Welcome


The traditional nonprofit model doesn't work anymore.

You know the model. It's the one where executives at the top wear a dozen different hats just to scrape by. It's the one that has people running around from task to task all day, everyday. It's the one that leaves leaders burned out and organizations stuck in the past.

It's time for a new model.

When we say leadership from the top-down, we're not just talking about executive level leadership. We're talking about a fundamental shift in the way your organization operates. This change is about empowerment. It's about taking ownership.

But more than anything, it's about delivering results. 

We equip people to think bigger, dream bigger, and do bigger things. It starts with leadership. We partner with organizations who aren't afraid of change and help transform the way they run by developing leadership at every level. Whether you're leading an organization or leading a department, everyone plays a part in your organization's success.

We equip tomorrow's leaders, today. 



We Share What We Know With Those Who Don't

The days of nonprofit execs wearing several different hats are over. Great leaders don't know everything; they learn from those who do. We love sharing our 50+ years of experience with serious leaders who are eager to grow.

We Coach leaders, not followers

Amateurs learn through trial and error. For nonprofit organizations, error is often the difference between impact and failure. Serious leaders get coaches to help them lead more effectively without all the struggles.

We are collaborators, not know-it-alls

Effective organizations know they can't do everything on their own. We develop leaders who understand that collaboration is essential to survival.

We Aren't Afraid of what comes next

The effective nonprofit model is shifting. The organizations who are part of shaping the future are the ones who aren't afraid to shake up the status quo. Innovation is the only way forward. We don't want to see leaders get left behind.

Strategic Planning Weinar


Your vision is the most important thing you carry with you, and it’s vital that you protect that vision with the skills and resources you need to bring it to life. But where do you begin? Without direction and leadership, it’s easy for organizations to become stagnant. Fundraising isn’t working, limiting your ability to function. Technological changes and cultural trends leave you feeling lost and out of touch. Failed marketing strategies. Diminishing returns. It’s enough to make anyone question themselves. Am I doing enough? Am I the right one? 

Results don’t come by accident. They require effort and planning. That starts with leadership. When it comes to the impact your organization has, vision isn’t enough. The truth is, making an impact is hard work, and results can feel hard to come by for organizations that haven’t been equipped with the leadership skills and essential tools it requires. Without the proper plan, vision can begin to fade and you’re left feeling like you didn’t do enough. 

When you're running around in a dozen different directions at any time, wearing multiple hats, your leadership and impact are already compromised. The most effective organizations are the ones that understand that when leaders grow, the rest of the team does too. Everyone in your organization plays a role in its success. But when your team doesn't feel empowered, success can be hard to come by. We want to help you and your team grow together.

We do that through innovative coaching, leadership development, and training that helps organizations lead better from the top-down. Are you ready to take your impact to the next level?

We're here to help you with any questions you might have. Drop us a line if you have more questions or want more information. 

My organization is smaller. Do you offer services that can help us grow?

We have partnered with organizations of all sizes and stages of development. If you're new or looking to grow, we can help you do that through development plans that empower you to grow in all facets, from fundraising and strategic planning to program management and team development. Our goal is to help you reach your goals. No matter the size, we're here to help you grow your impact and organization. We'd love to work with you! 

We are struggling with fundraising. Can you help us raise more effectively?

We can! We believe the best way to transform organizational fundraising is to equip leaders in your organization with the skills and mindset they need to be successful. Our team has helped organizations raise hundreds of millions of dollars, and we can't wait to empower your team with our knowledge and experience so that you can become your own success story in fundraising. 

How do I know if my organization needs leadership development?

Many organizations look at leadership development as an indictment on their organization when it's really the opposite. Our belief is that everyone – from executive level officers to support staff – needs mentorship to help them lead and work more effectively. We all have our own coaches and mentors, and organizations that take the time to develop their leadership strategies are the ones who make the biggest impact. Action takes leadership and leadership takes a team to make it work most effectively.
