Katie B. Strategies, LLC
- Organizational Development & Planning
- Specialized Consultants
I’ve worked with nonprofits and for profits, boards and staff teams, and coalitions and campaigns to develop shared missions and craft comprehensive implementation plans. I have a passion for aligning groups around their vision, building robust implementation plans, engaging and developing leaders, and delivering real successes to the communities we serve. I have the unique ability to simultaneously lead broad visioning processes, translate those goals into outcome deliverables, and implement detailed work plans.
My goal is to inspire leaders to organize, develop, and implement robust plans that help them change the world. Whether you are looking for individual professional development, non-profit consulting, or business support, I can build a tailored program to meet your specific needs.
After more than a decade of serving as an executive, strategist, trainer, and commentator, I have a unique perspective on the interconnected relationship between motivating groups of people, developing strategic plans, and engaging dynamic leadership to achieve a shared goal.
The single most important element of achieving your mission is having an aligned, collaborative team. Only then can you develop bold and innovative strategies, execute plans that drive your mission, and achieve your desired outcomes.
Long-term strategic plans of the past typically ended up on a shelf collecting dust. I focus my planning services on providing organizations and businesses with a strategic framework that allows them to adapt to a quickly changing landscape while ensuring alignment with their vision, mission, and values.
Organizational unifications, including mergers, acquisitions, and strategic alliances, are innovative strategies to maximize available resources and leverage the skills and relationships of individual organizations to achieve a shared mission. Through leading multiple nonprofit mergers of varying scope and intensity, I have developed a deep understanding of and unique approach to the challenges and opportunities of uniting organizations.
From program development to implementation, I can help your team build and manage projects of all sizes.
High functioning teams are critical to achieving your mission. Whether you are a non-profit or business, a board member or Executive Director, I can help you build the team that will take your work to the next level.
WORKFLOW & PRODUCTIVITY ASSESSMENT
Have a lot on your plate and can't seem to get ahead? I've spent years researching and implementing workflow and productivity theories, systems, and tools. I can help you build a work flow that you can stick to and that will alleviate your stress.
Diversity trainings, campaign trainings, organizing trainings, messaging trainings, advocacy trainings...I've done them all and have a network that I can access to bring in other experts to help train your team.
PRESENTATION DEVELOPMENT & COACHING
Tied of boring slide shows? Me, too. That's why I've spent years testing the latest presentation tools to enhance your message and engage your audience. Whether you need help crafting your message, someone to build your slide deck, coaching on your delivery, or some combination there of, I can help you make the impact you want.
Leveraging the power of technology, cloud collaboration, virtual workspaces and more can boost you and your organization's productivity, production, and impact. I can help you identify, select, and implement the right technological tools for your team.
I have extensive experience planning events of all sizes -- from small fundraisers to large conferences to weddings to hundred-thousand person rallies.
My background includes strategic planning, program development, group facilitation, public speaking, grassroots organizing, event planning, and politics. I have managed and led boards of directors and staff teams, nonprofits, and issue advocacy, legislative, and public relations campaigns.
I’ve worked for people in different roles, including a Governor and a Member of Congress. I’ve worn many hats, including president and CEO, executive director, board chair, trainer, facilitator, spokesperson, lobbyist, fundraiser, scheduler, and organizer.
I am a proud geek, and I am constantly following the latest trends in technology, productivity systems, cloud collaboration tools, photography, and all things Apple.
