Strategic Initiatives and Special Projects

You have a new strategic plan! Now what?  Often schools need additional resources to help plan and implement important strategic initiatives or new projects that come along.

By first getting to know your organization and its context and listening carefully to your objectives and needs, Liz will collaborate with you and your team to execute new initiatives with a thoughtful, research-based and customized approach.

From the preliminary stages of research and analysis through to business plan development, action planning, execution and evaluation, Liz will help you translate your vision into reality.

Retreats and Short-term Task Forces

When Liz works with a school or non-profit, she is committed to helping your team make the best decisions possible.  Organizations benefit from her objective advice and expertise at leadership, marketing or strategic retreats, as part of a short-term task-force or as a member of your hiring team. Liz has the expertise to both lead or participate in these focused activities, bringing a decision making framework to each initiative, allowing for objective and consistent results.
