Why Choose the Guided Review Add-on?
The Accountability Wizard® Review Process is comprehensive, and with good reason. Even the smallest organization is tasked with exciting but real challenges like …
- How to create a shared culture of transparency and trust as you engage your board and staff around accountability issues.
- How to best align your organizational practices and procedures for mission impact.
We’ve heard form our nonprofit partners that it can be a huge boost to receive some initial guidance to get your review process off on the right foot. That’s why we’ve created the Guided Review Add-on, an appealing option for nonprofits less practiced in organizational assessment or for leaders who appreciate the help of one-on-one attention and the accountability of deadlines.
This add-on will take about four hours of your time total, and the investment for this additional coaching is $250. You can get started today by following the instructions below to get started. Questions? Please contact us.
What Are Other Organizations Saying?
“I had my hands full adding staff and expanding statewide, so the thought of undertaking the Accountability Wizard at the same time was a bit daunting. But, I also knew it would be a great tool for the organization – to create a roadmap and to grow with care and stability. When I heard about Charity’s Guided Review, I knew it was the best option for me. I greatly appreciated the direction the guided review process provided, instead of piecing it all together myself in the midst of everything else I was balancing. I’d recommend the guided review to anyone who is hesitating to take that first step with the Accountability Wizard!”
