Choosing a Consultant
Consultants can often offer expertise not available in your own organization. They can also serve as a mentor, facilitate meetings or retreats, provide training or partner with you in other ways to address organizational challenges.
While using a consultant offers many attractive benefits, it can be intimidating to open your organization to an individual or group of individuals who may not be familiar with your work.
One of the most important aspects of choosing a consultant to work with your organization is completing due diligence. Have in-depth conversations with potential consultants. Understand their methodologies, pricing and time commitments - and get it in writing. Check references. make certain they understand not only the nonprofit sector, but also your organization's mission and goals.
