At Bossey Advisory Partners, our work helping organizations grow has never stopped at the for-profit world. In fact, our founder and his family have a long track record of community involvement and leadership. The problems that plague many for-profit organizations also impact the not-for-profit world, but they show themselves differently.
The currency of not-for-profits is not dollars, but an ability to create, sustain, and focus energy. Not-for-Profits often stall when the mission becomes clouded, the team is not aligned, there is no process to turn money and time into tangible, well-communicated results, there is little community discussion (both outreach and feedback), and there aren't clear metrics to measure (and communicate)success.
Our Six Key Growth Indicators are equally applicable to a not-for-profit institution. Our approach is to do an assessment that yields a prioritized list of actions that should be taken to increase success. We then work as either a fractional executive or executive coach to put a playbook in place and then provide the people and other resources necessary to carry the action plan out.
We are committed to helping grow a vibrant community of not-for-profit organizations. Therefore we dramatically reduce our fees for charitable organizations and donate a portion of our profits each year to organizations with missions that align with the values of our employees.
