Our mission is to unleash organizational potential through team alignment, empowering individuals to create an impact with meaningful purpose.
What We Value
We believe that alignment starts with respecting and including individual opinions – our ‘bottoms-up’ approach invests individuals and key stakeholders.
We believe that invested teams can be empowered to create happy and healthy work environments.
We believe in practical solutions and "teaching one to fish" by coaching clients on achieving their goals.
We feel the necessity of our partners’ missions, practicing urgency and purpose with each project.
Why Choose Us
- Laser Focus: All of our partners are mission-driven organizations who aim to grow in team alignment, goal setting, and strategic planning. Empower for Good chooses to partner with a select group of clients and works with urgency to serve as an extension of our partners.
- High Value: We believe that what you see is what you get – when you work with Empower for Good, a top coach is your main contact and will not hand off your project to other junior team members. (If mutually agreed upon by both partners, expert consultants can be brought in on specific project areas).
- Best of Both Worlds: Empower for Good has seen firsthand the impact of corporate discipline and systems on mission-driven organizations and brings this experience to the non-profit realm.
