Coaching

Working with individual leaders, whether management or board, can change the future of an organization. Many of us arrive in the nonprofit environment without specific nonprofit knowledge. The ways the nonprofit realm works can be learned.

 

We also have deep experience in conflict resolution.

Craig is also a Leadership Circle certified training partner. This 360 evaluation tool is the gold standard for leaders to learn about their capabilities... and possibilities.

Public Speaking

Do you have a crowd that you'd like to motivate and inspire?

Craig Howard has extensive public speaking experience on topics related to nonprofits: governance, management, and fundraising (and the fear of fundraising). He brings in experiences from his work in nonprofit, for-profit, aviation, and from around the world.

Whether it's five people or 500, Craig can energize your audience.

Executive Transition

Hiring and managing the leader of a nonprofit is some of the most important work a board will ever do. Preparing for the process makes it predictable and smooth. Preparing board and staff for questions and priorities is critical to this process.

 

I have worked in CEO and Executive Director search - preparing organizations for the transition from one leader to the next from the day of announcing plans to hire, to the work of effectively onboarding. Let me help your team.
