What Will We Cultivate? 

The things we give our attention to are the things that will grow. In a time when we can no longer rely on past ways of getting things done, I work with groups to identify what is most most important, and what attention will encourage new ideas to thrive. Recent work includes:

  • Strategic planning and work plan Development (Logic models, Gantt Charts, capacity building)
  • Program or organization-wide evaluation
  • HR policy and office use policy revision 
  • Leadership coaching and team building 
  • Individual donor and major donor program planning
  • Program Design and Tracking

Saint Paul Area Chamber on Working with Corrie

I have been working with St Paul Area Chamber (SPAC) to redesign a 2019 plan to connect artists rooted in St Paul's Cultural Destination Areas with downtown events. SPAC's Kim O'Brien says:

"Corrie is very thoughtful and strategic in his approach. Utilizing his experience in nonprofit leadership and development, he helped our team develop and communicate a new program that serves both immediate and long term goals of our organization. Corrie is a very careful listener. He picks out ideas within the conversation that feel meaningful, and helps build a strategy and narrative around them. He gently pushes to identify the goal and then keeps us focused on achieving it."
