Counsel

Production of plans, study reports and tools for implementation are only a first step in building capacity. Through Periodic Counsel we provide important coaching, technical expertise, facilitation and an independent perspective. Our timely coaching and training sessions, guidance and expertise provide volunteers and staff with a greater level of comfort and knowledge as your organization moves forward with its growth plans.

One of our key objectives is to increase your organization's capacity to the point where our services are no longer required. Thus, we often begin with intensive support, including workshops and coaching, and then adjust the level of involvement as your in-house capacity and expertise evolves.

 

In addition, many smaller organizations operate with limited staffing. Periodic Counsel provides access to senior level expertise in a number of key areas enabling a small team to leverage its work to the greatest potential for an organization.

"Dree was instrumental in getting us on track for our health campaign; her wisdom, guidance and knowledge of fundraising and campaign strategy, in particular, helped us on our way to the halfway mark of our goal.  Her understanding of post-secondary was invaluable and her ability to assess a situation clearly and quickly allows progress to be made in a timely manner for the best possible outcome.  I continue to rely on her as a trusted advisor and mentor."
