Non-Profits & B Corps

We work with mission-driven organizations to help them adopt and deploy next-generation organizational learning and interactive program strategies. These program will help optimize staff and volunteer capacity and extend your organization’s mission to the market through The Public Square Academy.

We specialize in small to mid-sized organizations who can benefit from a flexible consulting approach where your key knowledge is retained and spread within your organization and members.

 

Consultative Training and Development

Learning organizations retain their competitive knowledge through active engagement in learning processes. We consult with you to design, build, and support T & D programs that are efficient, ensure critical knowledge is timely and current, and that support quality relationship development within the organization.

Continuous Learning Communities

Continuous Learning Communities provide ongoing education and peer support to ensure participants advance their areas of expertise. An expert mentor or manager guides the group, collaborates in agenda-setting to assure topics and content are relevant.

Member Education

Educate, empower, and engage your members with your message.  Effective membership training and support creates armies to spread your message and provides the multiplying effect of word-of-mouth reputation. Our relationship-based strategies multiply your impact.

Microlearning

Microlearning programs are short, regular, timely, and relevant lessons and reminders. Leaders have direct access to participants, and participants keep current while on the go. Repetition, reinforcement, and consistency deepen learning and adoption.

Onboarding Programs

Staff and volunteer positions sometimes suffer high turnover. An effective onboarding program lets new employees know that they are valued, efficiently transitions them into their workflow, and provides critical relationships for their integration into the team. 

Cross-Training Programs

Cross-training creates efficiency and builds relationships. We have a tendency to develop our knowledge in silos, creating miscommunication and gaps between organizational functions. We help you empower your employees to master the big picture of your organization and maximize their own efficiency.

 

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.” 

–Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:278
