With the increasing demands for nonprofit organizations to deliver impact, maintain financial sustainability, build community engagement, recruit talented and committed board members, maintain networks and relationships throughout the community, and build staff capability, it is no wonder that executive director burn-out is on the rise.
I attended a gathering of nonprofit consultants sponsored by the Vitalyst Health Foundation in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago and I am pleased to announce that I am part of a cadre of consultants trained be a Professional Interim Executive Director for nonprofit organizations.
As a PIED (don’t you love the acronym?) I am not part of your organization’s past or your future and have no agenda. As an interim, I steward your organization to its next chapter while giving the board breathing room to reflect on where the organization is going. I can address immediate challenges while working with the board and staff to create a strategic framework, and set the stage so the next executive director will be successful.
In addition to being a sponsored by the Vitalyst Health Foundation, I also hold certifications in board governance training with BoardSource; project management, PMI; meeting design and facilitation, the Grove; and leadership coaching, International Coach Federation. Check out my bio for more details.
If you are in need of an interim executive director, please get in touch. I have the ability to travel and can take on engagements of any length of duration.
