karen-2014-2You Do Good Work

You help the illiterate to read. You place paintbrushes in frail seniors’ hands. You organize programs to solve pressing public problems. You do a myriad of noteworthy things to make lives better.

Despite its joys, nonprofit work is hard, and it’s not for wimps. Contrary to what you’ve heard, it’s not government or business that requires the highest skills—it’s the nonprofit sector. Leaders here need the same abilities as every leader and more. That’s where Karen steps in. Since 1994 Karen’s been guiding nonprofit leaders like you to sharpen their swords and to operate with smarter playbooks to transform their communities of supporters into mission and revenue champions.

As your nonprofit guide, Karen offers advice to help you solve or prevent intractable revenue challenges and grow your support community, so you can obtain the resources you need to make your mission manifest. With Karen’s guidance, you’ll be welcoming people, increasing resources, and fulfilling your mission in dynamic, efficient, and straightforward new ways.

To help you grow your skills and build a thriving nonprofit, and become your nonprofit’s revenue hero, Karen offers:


Did you know that every nonprofit leader can grow their organization’s revenue, mission, and community? That’s how Karen’s nonprofit coaching program helps. The coaching program is a six-month opportunity for individuals who seek to be more productive and grow their leadership skills. Coaching is proactive, based on metrics for improvement, specific goals, growth needs, and accomplishment timelines. To gain invaluable insights, it includes a mini-360 to gather feedback from peers and subordinates you identify. Coaching includes weekly phone calls. During them, you clarify your goals, explore your achievements, get your questions answered, develop the next steps, and gain expertise. The coaching fee provides one individual with access to Karen for six-months by email and phone, plus an extensive review of work. Alternatively, as mutually convenient, we can meet one-on-one. Set an appointment with Karen to chat about your situation. No strings attached.


The mentor program is a six-month opportunity for individuals who want to improve their work-life balance and be more productive. At the beginning of this six-month program, you and I will reach a joint decision about whether this program will help you. If we agree, then you will be asked to provide appropriate background information that I will examine. You might, for example, provide your current plan, draft materials, outlines, or other materials. Together, with this in hand, we will set specific goals for our time. This program is to help you meet your professional and personal goals. It’s so powerful many folks sign up more than one-time. Set a no-obligation appointment with Karen to chat about if mentoring is right for you.
