It's time to get your team aligned

This is for you if…

You’ve felt the frustration of strategic plans gathering dust on a shelf because the “expert” didn’t help you upgrade your culture
You’ve struggled with getting buy-in and alignment around the direction your organization needs to go
You’ve known burnout because your nonprofit doesn’t have enough money to fuel your mission
You know any process for your team has to be efficient and effective, you are tight on time
You realize donors are no longer giving to charity, they want to fund change and impact
You are mission-driven but you’ve felt isolated in the work and you’re looking for a breakthrough
“The whole experience with Thrive Impact has been game-changing for our entire staff in how people are treating each other and thinking about our mission. Hearing how connected everybody feels now, even through COVID, is huge!”
Angie Rowe, ED
Blind Children’s Learning Center, Orange County, CA
“I was walking home from work last night and I marveled at how wonderful the Thrive Impact Strategic Planning Process was for our Board and Staff. The time we spent with the Thrive Team was a game changer!“
Kim Cox, President

Nantz Rickard,
DCTV, Washington, DC
“Thrive Impact did an amazing job facilitating our strategic planning process. There was a lot of new data, historical perspectives and personality nuances that could have easily derailed us from achieving our goals. Their credibility, knowledge, and personalities were the reasons why we were able to get the clarity we needed!”
Lissa Goldenstein, Board Chair
RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association
“Well, that was epic! You guys are seriously talented facilitators and we are so grateful for all the support on the experience.”

Our Process

We are not consultants who come to you with answers. We are coaches and guides who unlock the power of your board, your team, and you. Here’s how we approach your nonprofit with the respect that you deserve and the results that you need.

1

People First

Often at the end of our workshops, people say, “We feel more connected as a team than ever before.” Our process focuses on the upgrading of your culture as well as your strategies.

2

Appreciative Inquiry

This strengths-based facilitation methodology taps into the collective intelligence of an organization. This helps solve any challenge with unprecedented speed and high levels of engagement.

3

Co-creation

Experts who tell you what to do don't get you what you need. We bring expertise to you through discovery, dialogue, and interactivity, so we’re co-creating together with your team.

4

Efficient & Transparent

We get a lot done through the use of science-backed interaction patterns and powerful questions. This builds collective buy-in of the strategies and the future of your organization much more quickly.

5

The Uncomfortable Truth

Your comfort zone is not usually where success lives. The greatest opportunity to bring lasting change comes through encouraging you to imagine new ideas, processes, and solutions.

Approach Matters

Create positive change that is sustainable

1

Appreciative Inquiry-based Facilitation

Do you want a change process that works?
Appreciative Inquiry is a strengths-focused, generative approach that taps into the collective intelligence of an organization to solve any challenge with unprecedented speed and high levels of engagement. An independent review found that 90% of Appreciative Inquiry change approaches in workplaces succeed.

2

Rooted in Co-creation & Inclusion

Do you want to energize your team?
Top-down “telling people what to do” approaches rarely work for creating organization-wide change. People have energy towards what they get to create. Co-creation creates an inclusive environment allowing diverse voices to upgrade your culture so that you can implement your strategies effectively. As the age old Peter Drucker saying goes... “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”

3

Data-driven Alignment

Do you want to make better decisions?
From deep passion and heart to important missions, nonprofit work is full of subjectivity. Our process creates alignment through objectivity by gathering and leveraging internal and external data to drive and inform the most important decisions you need to make to be a mission-driven organization.

4

Iterative Learning

Do you want to adapt to change better?
In times of unprecedented change, your nonprofit’s ability to be relevant is not based on a single point in time (i.e. when you create a “plan”), but your ability to apply learning and adapt quickly over time. Through experiential learning, we teach your team how to be a learning organization.

Nonprofit Energizers To Help Your Nonprofit Thrive

Energize Your Revenue

The old ways of fundraising aren’t working anymore. With changes in taxes and generations, there’s never been a less certain time for donations. But there is revenue available if you just know where to look.

Through a two-month experience of customized workshops with your team, we’ll help you develop mission-driven revenue strategies customized to your organization’s unique value.

Your nonprofit has many opportunities for revenue, and not always just through fundraising. We’ll help you find them.

Energize Your Strategic Plan

Too many strategic plans are too complicated, the process of creating one is exhausting, and then they usually just end up just gathering dust. A clear and concise strategic plan co-created with your team that actually helps you know where you’re going (and not going) is possible and doesn’t have to be painful.

Through a two-month energizing experience of customized workshops with your team, we streamline the traditional six to twelve month strategic planning process and efficiently help you identify your unique value, understand your data, align your team, and develop the roadmap to accelerate your nonprofit’s impact.

Energize Your Culture

Staff comes into work on the verge of burnout. You’re frustrated. And the worst part is? Everyone can tell. If you know, deep down, that you need to somehow fix your culture: Get. Started. Now.

In the immortal words of Peter Drucker, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” Whether you need to go to the next level strategically or you’re just plain stuck, improving your culture is where to start

If you’re a courageous nonprofit leader, we can help you dive into these murky culture waters and come out with an aligned team that has a shared language and a clear direction on the path forward to achieve your mission… together.

Energize Your Board

Do you have a pain in your board? Sometimes board members can waste a CEO’s time, bring too many ideas to the table without understanding what it takes to get them done, and just not follow through on commitments they’ve made

It doesn’t have to be that way, though. You can have a board that not only governs properly, but drives your mission forward. Through a full-day workshop experience, we can help you unlock the power of your board so they can be one of your nonprofit’s greatest assets.
