What happens during a Leadership Consultation?

Before you meet with a Leadership Consultant, you will fill out an intake form explaining what you want to meet about. The Leadership Consultant will come with relevant resources to help explore those topics. They can also assist you in understanding your organization’s challenges and/or aspirations within your organization’s mission statement and the Leadership & Social Change framework. Before your consultation is over, you will have developed an action plan for next steps you and your organization can take. If there are additional resources that may be helpful, the Leadership Consultant you meet with will include them in a follow-up email.

Appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes.
