We offer just the level of hand-holding you want.
By working with a coach, you can benefit from the experience and feedback of someone who has seen dozens of implementations and governance changes.
We never forget that you’re the expert on your organization and culture, and you remain in the driving seat at all times.
The consultants identify the stage of implementation your organization is currently at and assess your organization’s needs. They also assess with you what kind of support might be useful to make your next steps effective and successful
Services that are typically part of an implementation:
You need a consultant that has the experience you’re looking for and understands your sector. We are connected to consultants from a wide variety of sectors like business, nonprofits, co-op, intentional community, schools.
If in-person support is crucial for your needs, it’s essential to consider the geographical aspect. Additionally, language plays a significant role, and we are connected with consultants proficient in a wide array of languages to cater to your requirements
The magic ingredient is chemistry! Looking under the hood in an organization and having open conversations about power and performance requires trust. You want to work with someone you like and trust.
With SoFA, you have two options:
✔ experienced, certified consultants and trainers
✔ established teams for bigger projects
✔ more choices, languages, places
✔ some consultants in the network might be able to work with lower rates
