Nonprofit Planning resources are too plentiful.

Coaching is a rigorous alternative for leaders determined to have a great impact and leave a legacy. Check some alternatives and contact me to see if coaching is the best choice
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.
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.
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
