Governance consultancy and support
for voluntary organisations
|CONSULTANCY AND SUPPORT
FOR YOU AND YOUR ORGANISATION
Sandy Adirondack can provide governance consultancy and/or training tailored to your organisation, or mentoring can be provided to individuals.
CONSULTANCY, TRAINING AND FACILITATION
Although I am semi-retired I sometimes carry out out governance reviews, constitutional reviews, and other consultancies to help with in-depth problems, incorporation and other major changes. I can also provide training specific to the organisation's needs, primarily on governance and legal responsibilities of boards.
The fee for consultancy or training depends on the nature of the work. The fee always includes all initial discussions, preparation time, travel time, handouts if applicable, a written report on the facilitated sessions or the consultancy work, and a reasonable amount of follow-up support. The fee does not include travel costs, or b&b accommodation if it is necessary to travel the night before.
Mentoring can help board members or managers think through issues and problems in a safe environment, away from the pressures of day-to-day work. For staff, mentoring is intended to enhance, not replace, managerial supervision.
My mentoring tends to focus primarily on structural and procedural issues, rather than group dynamics and interpersonal relationships. But structures and procedures cannot be changed without full awareness of the relationships involved!
Sessions may be one-off or on a regular basis. The emphasis is on change, and on how changes can be effectively introduced within the organisation. The fee is negotiable,depending on the number and length of sessions and where they take place.
