Mary Hanewall’s extensive nonprofit background can get organizations on more solid ground or help move them to the next step. She works one-on-one with executive leadership in the convenience and privacy of their offices. Too often these top leaders have no one in whom they can confide, no one with whom they feel comfortable discussing issues, problems, and opportunities. Mary helps them to assess priority issues, break them into parts, then she coaches them to create and implement a manageable plan of action. Generally, nonprofit directors ask her to work with them weekly for at least a three-month period, sometimes more. Rates are affordable: $125 per hour the first eight hours or less, $100 per hour after that.

Once Mary is onboard, results begin to happen quickly, largely because the leader is now holding him or herself accountable—and with someone who has no agenda except to support them. Nearly as important, the executive leader has more clarity and focus, as well as satisfaction doing the hard work of fulfilling a professional mission. Mary can be a coach in your corner.
