What they're saying:

 “Investing in Anne Maxfield’s services was the best choice for GOTR. In the past three years, we have undergone talent transitions and needed the guidance of a professional to help take our organization from good to great. Our board is full of engaged and talented individuals … we are confident in the three-year strategic plan that Anne helped us to craft … the staff is excited to have a tangible action plan in place. As the director, I am thankful to have more concrete goals to tie to our staff progress reviews … thanks to Anne’s direction, our team clearly knows where we want to go and how we want to get there.”

Strategic Planning:

Strategic planning does not have to be complex and difficult; people make it so. To that end, when nonprofits engage Anne Maxfield, she has a process that is clear, simple, and will result in a robust plan. Ms. Maxfield will design and execute the entire strategic planning process using critical data gathered around cohorts identified by the Client. Embedded is diversity, equity, and inclusion. A full-day strategic planning process can take two different approaches: National Council for Nonprofits or based on the Vision/Traction Organizer©, a tool from the book, Traction.
