IMPLEMENTING

a partnership in which Mission Triangle professionals guide the individualized application of nonprofit best practices around health and sustainability

.

Implementation lies at the intersection of the “how to” of nonprofit best practices within the unique needs and dynamics of your organization.

We realize that no two nonprofits are alike, so through implementation services we aim to come alongside and help you make practical meaning and application of what you have learned within the context of your organization.

Coaching

Coaching is a “no cost” service typically offered to nonprofits who attend Mission Triangle quarterly workshops and serves as a catalyst for identifying the next best steps, actions, or initiatives that need to be taken by an organization.

 

Coaching sessions are one-on one engagements that are 60 minutes in length and can cover a variety of topics:

 

  • Mission Triangle core competencies related to organization health and sustainability
  • Growth Plan debrief, discussion, and planning
  • Mission Triangle tools that foster organizational health and sustainability
    • Baseline Health Assessment (BHA) overview, usage, and utility (BHA orientation) for organizational growth
    • Orientation to Mission Triangle’s digital learning system, Pathway, for the individual and organization (learning, community, and access) growth and development.
    • Nonprofit Portal overview/training/usage for organization

 

*Coaching sessions can be held in person, through video conference technology, or over the phone.

Consulting

Consulting is best defined as individualized guidance, advising, support, advocacy, and planning that is carefully and thoughtfully developed to meet a distinct need or set of needs that move a nonprofit along the continuum of health and sustainability. Consulting is a deeper level of engagement with seasoned Mission Triangle Strategic Consultants and is considered a “fee for service” opportunity. Consulting projects can take many different forms including:

 

  • Baseline Health Assessment (BHA) comprehensive review, training, and planning strategy session/retreat
  • Facilitating a comprehensive strategic planning process
  • Delivering a customized core competency training/workshop
  • Facilitated board retreat/board governance training
  • Conducting an organization assessment or 360 leader evaluation
  • Facilitating a comprehensive donor campaign and communication strategy
  • Human Resources assessment and planning including organizational chart, roles, responsibilities, performance evaluation, etc.
  • Development of organizational measurements/benchmarks or creation of a Theory of Change
  • Facilitated staff leadership training
  • And much more…

 

Consulting projects can also be structured in different ways:

 

  • Hourly: an agreed upon hourly-structured consulting project
  • Fixed bid: a packaged consulting project that may also involve a final deliverable
  • Retainer projects: projects 3-12 months in length that facilitate health and sustainability around multiple organizational needs

 

*The cost for consulting is dependent on the scope and depth of the project.
