The Challenge

People are the backbone of any organization. But sometimes, working with people brings challenges that get in the way of effective communication and collaboration.

Nonprofits need flexible strategies to bring out the best in their people so they can continue bringing out the best in our world.

The realities of nonprofit work are complex and demanding. Addressing society’s thorniest issues in a resource-scarce environment can quickly become overwhelming—no matter how much passion we bring to the cause. By intentionally focusing on organizational culture, however, nonprofits can do a lot to bring out the best in their people despite the realities of mission-driven work. It starts with adopting a Supportive Environments for Effectiveness (SEE) approach to decision-making and problem-solving.

Our Framework Our Approach

What's possible with SEE?

Placing supportive environments at the center of organizational decision-making helps nonprofits realize the potential of their staff, communications, and programs.

Supported Staff

Supported Staff

Working in a nonprofit can be an incredibly rewarding experience—and an incredibly exhausting one. SEE helps organizations identify what’s working and what isn’t with regard to organizational culture, and develop strategies that enable staff to feel energized, supported, and gratified.

Productive Communications

The way nonprofits share information matters—too much, too little, or none at all can lead to undesirable outcomes. Our process helps organizations understand the ways people engage with information, and rethink “business as usual” communications practices to make room for increased understanding and engagement.

Impactful Programs

Impactful Programs

Program work is at the heart of nonprofits’ missions. Our process can help organizations clarify program aims so they’re clear and actionable, and develop environments ripe for collaboration and innovation.
