Be the change you would like to see in the world. ~Mahatma Gandhi
Changing the world is a tall order. But change is something that we encounter all the time in our lives and in our work. It's the only thing that's certain. Change can cause anxiety and fear, but it also creates an opportunity for growth. With change we can examine what is and envision what could be. Instead of shying away from change, step into it. Help shape the world you want to live and the work you want to do. "Be the change." I can help.
Do the best you can until you know better. When you know better, do better. ~Maya Angelou
The workforce is in a state of overwhelm. The recent recession has caused many organizations and businesses to cut staff, while responsibilities and work load has continued to increase. I see people in all sectors doing the best they can with the time and tools available. Sooner or later they realize, that they can't do it all. By investing in your organization, your programs and processes, you can make strategic improvements to help make things more efficient, and therefore give you more time to do what you do best. The work you do is important, let me help you make it easier. For "when you know better, [you can] do better."
Measure what you treasure. ~Jon "the bad" Anderson
Outcomes and impact have been emphasized in all levels of funding from foundations to the federal government. The underlying statement is accountability. Funders are asking: what are we investing in and what are the results? There are many outputs or results that can be included in reports, but what's the most important? What do you value? What has the biggest impact? "Measure what you treasure." I can help.
Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can. ~Arthur Ashe
There's no better time than now, and there's no better place than here. Together we can examine the resources available to you and map out a strategy to get to where you want to go. I can help.
“Choose courage over comfort.” - Brené Brown
Change is difficult. It’s much easier to continue down the path of least resistance, but that doesn’t allow us opportunities to grow. As Brene Brown challenges us, “choose courage” into difficult conversations and decisions, into toward the next phase, into the unknown, because that is where opportunity lies, that’s where our organizations grow, it’s where we grow too.
