assistance to nonprofit organizations. We will help you develop

for change and growth. From problem definition through data gathering

consulting services of proven value, with an emphasis on client
focus and results. Put our expertise to work for you!
Consulting fees are on a sliding scale based on organization budget
size and NMS membership status. Our standard hourly consulting rate
is $165, with progressive discounts for NMS members and organizations
with budgets of less than $5 million.
Each consulting assignment is unique, so we encourage you to call
and discuss your needs with us. We'll talk about what you want to
accomplish through working with a consultant, describe the types
of help we can provide, and give you an idea of the cost. For short-term
projects such as retreats, training, and consultations, we can make
arrangements and finalize terms over the phone or, if preferred,
provide you with an informal proposal to review. For more extensive
projects (strategic planning, etc.), we may want to meet with you
to develop a scope of work, and we will provide a full proposal
for your consideration. There is no charge for the initial phone
conversation or meeting.
- Coaching is one of the hottest trends in personal and professional
development. It's more than a trend however, it's becoming
a key ingredient to productivity and success.
