Leadership Development Consulting

Log bridge over running water.

We help organizations get started and “mature” from all-volunteer, small-budget efforts into organizations that have multiple staff, sustainable funding, and sophisticated programs designed to address concerns in their local waterways. We mentor advocates, enthusiasts, and practitioners to become capable and competent leaders of these organizations. We connect people to knowledge and a community of their peers, and we help organize collective action to accomplish things that can’t be accomplished alone.

Our team can work hand-in-hand with your staff and board to assess your needs, recommend a course of action and support you as you put in place the steps needed to make yours a stronger, more sustainable and outcome-driven organization. Our team brings more than 50 years of combined experience supporting nonprofit organizations and we offer the wisdom gained by working exclusively with river and watershed organizations across the country.

  • "The (capacity building) training session with myself and the other board members of Save The River will go a long way towards our getting from where we are today, to where we want to take our organization in the future. It was apparent that (the leadership team staff) had a depth of knowledge in the area of both planning as well as executing an effective plan for mapping our best practices toward a way forward. I am confident that as a result of your hard work and dedication to your craft, our future here on the river will be much smoother sailing."
