  • Transition Consultants for Maine Nonprofit Organizations

    Rapid change is a given in today’s organizations. Strategic affiliations and mergers must be considered. Additionally, leadership transition is a change every organization must face. How it is handled is a critical component of the sustainability equation. We partner with organizations to prepare for leadership transitions through a thoughtful and thorough proactive process. The result positions an organization to take advantage of new possibilities, prepares all parts of the organization for the shift, helps make the right hire, and supports the emergence of new leadership. Our transition and succession consulting is tailored to the specific needs of our clients.

“The Board of Directors for MaineShare engaged Carol to help us with strategic planning and to guide us through an Executive Director hiring process.  Carol is that rare gem: a skilled and experienced facilitator who brings true value to an organization.  She guided us through our planning process with skill, facilitating some difficult discussions and helping us reach consensus.  When it came time to start the hiring process, Carol’s advice proved to be invaluable and I am thrilled with the end result of our search – which was a direct result of Carol’s recommendations on process.  I was initially skeptical of the notion of hiring a consultant given our limited budget as a small nonprofit.  My experience with Carol taught me that the right consultant – like Carol – can deliver a return on the investment that is very well worth it.  Carol does a nice job of balancing tone as well: she steps back and helps facilitate a good conversation, but then, at the appropriate time, steps in and offers useful advice or words of wisdom.  I recommend Carol highly and without reservation to any nonprofit that could use a few minutes of sage outside advice.  Whether it is strategic planning or a significant transition that faces an organization, I think Carol delivers terrific value and wisdom.”
