Leadership and coaching

Life in the nonprofit sector often demands that we move deftly between a management role and a leadership role—and appreciating the critical difference—in the course of a day. We believe our sector’s leaders struggle too often with tactical, not strategic, approaches. Innovation and bold leadership are in short supply. Isn’t it time to stop driving with your eyes on the rearview mirror?

RMA can help you:

  • Understand your preferred leadership style and strengths . . . and your weaknesses
  • Practice values-based leadership based on your own “true north”
  • Appreciate your personal, organizational, and community leadership roles
  • Move out of your comfort zone toward taking more risk and accepting uncertainty
  • Mentor others, drawing out the unique gifts of each individual
  • Inspire, motivate, and rally others to your cause

Our recent experience includes the following leadership-related projects:

Coaching of an executive director who is widely respected and extremely well-versed in her industry, but who has failed to delegate and nurture the untapped talents of board and staff

Guiding a new nonprofit board through translating an ambitious and passionate vision into its program profile, taking into account the needs and wishes of the challenged community it serves, all within a framework that is fundable and sustainable

Helping a large nonprofit overcome a difficult executive and board governance upheaval (and potentially disasterous media scrutiny), re-setting its many strengths into action to emerge far better than before
