Nonprofit planning resources are plentiful — but only TurnAround Coaching offers a Platform of Planning+Execution. This 10x leadership teams/Boards that are frustrated by the dominance of established agencies, or impatient with their pace in getting the impact that they deserve, or are anxious about the retirement of a long serving leader or founder.

Are leaders ready for membership in Scaling Up?

  • Is your leadership team frustrated with things remaining the way that they are?
  • Have you attempted to build a strategic plan or business plan and experienced issues?
  • Does your leadership team try to keep learning?
  • Is the Executive Director ready to be a prime mover to implement decisions made in planning sessions?
  • Is the Board of Directors trying to understand it’s role in strategy and risk management?

What is the TurnAround Performance Platform?

The Performance Platform is at the center of Coaching. It records the strategy and the granular steps needed to see the strategy come alive. It’s the center of daily and weekly communication among leaders.

What are other choices?

If the answer is ‘no,’ or ‘I’m not sure’, the reason is often that your agency is still too small to devote enough time to planning. Small agencies often have Operating Boards of Directors that are involved in program services. Consider other choices below

What About Consulting?

Consultants have flooded the market. Anyone with a camera and a Zoom account can now be a consultant. How is TurnAround Coaching and Consulting different from traditional consulting?

  • Great consultants do excellent analysis but great coaches stay to co-architect the recommended changes after the report is prepared.
  • Great consultants teach content in a short time while a great coach promises results over a 1-3 year period
  • Great consultants specialize in one mechanism such as fund-raising or board development while a great coach is focused on agency financial sustainability and social impact
