Sparrow and Associates works with Non Profit/Not For Profit organizations across sectors to improve their member/stakeholder experiences, increase transparency and communication, and to ensure resources are being used to their maximum effect.
Principles and methodologies used in the corporate world can be used to an extent in NFPs but NFPs have unique constraints and oversight that must be accounted for in any strategic initiatives.
At stake, for many organizations is their future viability in the face of changing demographics, interests, and priorities. Staying relevant requires the agility to respond to threats and opportunities and a support team that is engaged, involved, and inspired.
Why not reach out to us to explore the possibilities for your organization.
Reach out to us for a personal consultation either virtually or in person.
Efficiency is paramount in an effective and agile Not For Profit organization. Yet NFPs face unique structural and operational challenges. When combined with regulatory and financial oversight, it can be difficult to be agile in the face of shifting priorities. We can help you to explore opportunities to innovate within the constraints unique to your sector. Do more with less, utilizing modern methodologies and increase engagement with your members and stakeholders, without increasing overheads.
Whatever the purpose of your meeting and the nature of the participants, from collaborative to contentious, an experienced meeting facilitator can help you to stay on track, achieve objectives, and fully engage participants. From regularly scheduled board meetings to final contract negotiations, a facilitator can ensure that issues are exposed and explored and messages are communicated and understood. An independent and impartial facilitator can help to expose opportunities, bridge chasms, and achieve consensus.
From contracts to member communications, we can support your organization by providing full publishing support services.
From simple proofreading of provided prose, to complete development of omnichannel communications, to developing and publishing monthly membership magazines, we can support your communications office, leveraging the latest technology, saving you money, and ensuring every communication is correct, concise, compliant, and professional.
Is your organization achieving all of its objectives? Is your stakeholder engagement at an all time high? If not, you may benefit from a cultural assessment that exposes internal and external barriers to success and recommends practical tactical countermeasures appropriate to your sector.
Innovative leadership requires self-awareness, that we foster through a mixture of challenge and decision support. Executive coaching services rely upon a collaborative relationship between the impartial coach and the leader to explore biases, behaviours, and styles that may undermine otherwise sound strategy. Whether for yourself or a promising up and comer, executive coaching helps emphasize consistent structure to support transformative change.
Whether at the table or behind the scenes, having experienced negotiators in your corner can even the odds and improve outcomes.
We can also train your team in 3D negotiation techniques while guiding them through a series of live encounters to instill skills that will provide ongoing benefit to the organization.
