We use an approach that involves four collaborative steps requiring full participation and investment of the organization.
"My organization completed a Strategic Plan under CTThompson Consulting's thoughtful guidance. We are thrilled with the product and were surprised by how much we enjoyed the process. Our facilitator was exceptionally skilled, resulting in a planning retreat that was inclusive, constructive and creative, while still remaining practical. The resulting plan is ambitious but the incorporated implementation timetable will keep us on track."
We design and facilitate high impact processes that are goal focused and flexible according to the dynamics and emerging needs of the organization. Our approach is always focused on helping our client make significant, measurable changes that result in organizational success. Throughout the process, the content and focus is on the client’s needs and agenda. Our projects fall predominantly within these areas:
Strategic Planning: Strategic planning can mean very different things to different organizations. We facilitate one time planning sessions and full-fledged strategic planning processes. Strategic planning may include: organizational assessments; mission, vision and value statements; campaign and program strategy; infrastructure development (policies and procedures); sustainability planning; fund development plans; implementation support and more.
Leadership Development: We support board development, leadership teams, and executive transitions. We also provide individual coaching to CEOs/EDs, Board Chairs and others.
Team Effectiveness: High performing teams increase impact, engagement and satisfaction. We support internal teams (staff and board), as well as cross-organizational teams via coalitions and strategic partnerships.
Diversity, Inclusion and Cultural Competency: We support organizations and coalitions to become inclusive of and responsive to differences at all levels of systems. Through a combination of training and consulting support, we develop leadership and systems that support social justice values. We bring an equity lens to all of our work.
Workshops: We provide custom designed workshop in all of the areas mentioned above and more. Ask us!
