Partnering with nonprofit and association leaders to build stronger organizations
Howard Consulting offers a variety of services and programs designed to help you strengthen your organization and build capacity to do more.
Training & Coaching for the “Accidental” Project Manager
We offer Training Workshops and one-on-one coaching to introduce project management skills to organizations and to help address challenges faced by those managing projects at your organization. We specialize in working with those who “fell into” their project management role – those who never planned to become a “project manager” but were given the opportunity to lead a program or initiative and are simply doing the best they can.
In our Training Workshops, we focus on teaching you enough project management skills that you can improve the plans and results of your projects. We have programs that can help make your project planning process easier and help you be better prepared to deliver the results you desire.
Our Pinpoint Project Management Coaching sessions may be appealing to you if prefer to work one-on-one to address your specific challenges or need extra time to focus on specific issues. These sessions are packaged into groups of 3 or more sessions, are typically conducted by phone or video conference, and are focused on topics driven by you.
When you need to plan a program or an event, to discuss the strategic direction of your organization, to focus on specific goals and action plans, or you want to conduct a serious work session with your staff, having a professional facilitator can help you reach better decisions, faster, and with greater commitment from participants.
Every facilitated session has a specific purpose or result to be achieved. To achieve the result, participants work through a series of predefined steps. The role of the facilitator is to guide the participants through the steps so that the final results are created, understood, and accepted by all participants. Our facilitators are highly experienced and can help you avoid common challenges of poorly managed meetings.
Our consulting services are tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether you have organization development challenges, fundraising challenges, project management challenges, or other strategic or operational issues, we will work with you to determine an approach to help you address those issues.
