Professional Coaching

Need the benefit of having someone to kick ideas around with, to figure out approaches to a particular donor or campaign, and to deal with a difficult board member? This program is designed for one person and small shops, in which confidential and individual support isn’t easy to find. Give me a call and we can customize a program, or even schedule a one-time session, to meet your needs.
