My Approach

Because every nonprofit’s situation is unique, it demands a carefully customized approach.  As I work with your organization to create and implement solutions that best meet your needs, I use three guiding principles that have become the hallmark of my work:

I Listen to you and the needs of your institution. 

“I learned a lot from you – you were incredibly sensitive to so many egos and so positive and encouraging the whole time.”  Board member, local DAR chapter (Rhinebeck, NY)

I Collaborate with you on a pathway for success.

“As always, Anne guided us with intelligence, understanding, practicality, perspective, encouragement, and wisdom.” Trustee, John W. Jones Museum (Elmira, NY)

I Enable you to achieve your best work and to continue on your own.

“Yesterday’s workshop was incredible.  Thank you for facilitating it and for your patience and flexibility in wandering through our group’s discussion.  I was thrilled to see the light bulbs going off over other board member’s heads during the session.  I was not sure how the morning would go, but it went just as I had hoped.  I know we need better planning and can’t think of a better way to get the rest of the board “on board” than the way you walked us through it.”  Trustee, Cambridge (NY) Historical Society & Museum

“Saturday was one of the most productive and effective meetings of its type [the board] every attended.  I was so happy with the entire day.  Great input and I know we’ll have great output.  Though we have a lot of work ahead, my stress level has decreased.”  Board president, Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society (Buffalo, NY)
