Services Geared Specifically to your Nonprofit

Employee Engagement

Nonprofits that see employees as their greatest resource and that foster employee engagement have the competitive edge in the mission-based marketplace. Research definitively demonstrates that employee engagement increases organizational productivity. Negstad Consulting designs staff development and performance management systems that foster employee engagement. We start with best practices. Then we integrate tools, such as the inGage Performance Learning System, designed to identify, connect, and tailor employees strengths to the organizational mission. Finally, we customize the system to your nonprofit's specific organizational culture.

Entreprenurial Strategic Planning

Negstad Consulting specializes in working with start-up and smaller non-profits on strategic planning. We work in partnership with the leadership of these organizations to first assess their current strengths and aspirations. Then we bring a set of wide-ranging tools and methods from the fields of appreciative inquiry; participatory planning, monitoring and evaluation; and traditional business competitor analysis to a strategic planning process designed specifically for that organization’s context.

Meeting Design and Facilitation

Negstad Consulting offers expert meeting design and facilitation services for boards, leadership teams, and staff groups who want to maximize employee engagement and organizational results. In partnership with the group leader, we design a meeting that combines creativity and structure. Negstad Consulting will also provide expert facilitation for your meeting, freeing all members of your organization to participate fully in the meeting process.

Lisa Negstad designed and led a very productive board planning retreat for our foundation, which enabled us to identify and clarify goals and priorities. Lisa is flexible, well organized, a good listener, and has a variety of skills which enable her to adapt her approach to the specific needs of the different groups with whom she works. We highly recommend her.
