Strategic planning does not need to be complicated, expensive, and take many months or years to complete. We believe that with a straight-forward and clear approach, organizations can have a strategic plan in place that helps them focus on what they do best to carry out their mission.
QCLC’s approach to strategic planning is to...
- Work with clients to develop the best course of action to complete the strategic planning process. These actions include discussing scheduling, participants, mandates, and the overall desired outcome from the client.
- QCLC gathers information and ideas from key stakeholders involved with the client through focus group sessions, interviews, surveys, and questionnaires. Summary reports are provided to the strategic planning team before the formal planning sessions occur.
- During the formal strategic planning sessions, QCLC uses specific tools and activities designed to help the client develop Core Values, Mission and Vision Statements, Strategic Areas, Strategic Goals, and Action Steps.
- After the strategic plan has been drafted, finalized, and adopted by the client, QCLC provides assistant with implementation through the use of accountability sessions.
Whether it is one-on-one assistance with leaders or managers, or training for the entire staff, QCLC provides custom coaching to help grow and develop leadership skills. Leadership coaching can be delivered in a one or two hour seminar or in a multi-week series covering all the different aspects of leadership.
QCLC works with organizations to clarify the role of a board in decision-making, setting policy, reviewing by-laws, creating committee structure, and selecting of new board members. Board Development is an excellent service for newly formed not-for-profits or for existing organizations that want to review current structure and increase board involvement.
QCLC provides experienced facilitation of face-to-face dialogue between two people who are engaged in unhealthy conflict in the workplace environment.
Fundraising and Development
QCLC provides consultation on how a not-for-profit organization can raise funds in diverse ways: grant-writing, special events, fees for service, mass appeals, social media, corporate gifts and major donors.
