In the past 16 years, my practice has been molded around supporting organizations to reach their full potential by being clearer on vision, mission, strategy and evaluation and having people working in stronger alignment with purpose and each other.

Insiders call this work organizational development,

strategy and direction-setting,

team building and/or capacity building.

In practical terms, we need to be able to tell our own stories, from our own perspectives, with our own words, in our own context; not somebody else extracting it from us. We are completely capable of defining success and all the indicators that tell us we are moving in the right direction. We owe that to ourselves and the work of justice.

The ways in which we add value the most are:
 
1. The combination of our competencies supporting social-benefit organizations and leaders.                                                                
2. Our network with funders, leaders and capacity builders.
4. Our track record, skills and co-ownership approach.
5. Our movement credentials and personal backgrounds.

 

We use many visuals in our work as a way to engage beyond talking. This a visual map from A Long Walk Home's Theory of Change retreat.
