The Council is one of the premiere collaborative management organizations in the nation; we’ve been fostering collaborative leadership for nearly three decades. We have always done our work through partnerships: convening community-based organizations, public agencies, and other partners to work toward shared outcomes to benefit the community.
We provide comprehensive expertise to ensure that partnerships work and achieve maximum impact. We currently serve as the initiators, conveners, staff and consultants to approximately 20 alliances and collaboratives.
We bring our expertise in facilitation, strategy and collaboration management to all of our cross-sector projects, whether we act as backbone organization or as consultants. Our work commonly involves helping many stakeholders tackle complex problems, ensuring that each member’s expertise is leveraged and diverse voices are heard.
We provide the following services as part of our collaboration management offering:
- Staffing support including planning, facilitation, internal communication, and records management
- Data-driven planning from data analysis, mapping or evaluation to technology development
- Governance and decision-making helping establish governance structures and decision making processes, planning for transparency, and facilitating complex or politically-charged processes.
Whether your initiative is at a formative, simple network stage or if you’re looking to move from a functioning collaborative to the collective impact, we can partner with you to help you achieve your goals.
