Supporting organizations engaging internationally to create a better world.
Support to organizations that are beginning a strategic planning process. Work with the staff and volunteer leaders to design a process that will achieve effective and sustainable outcomes. The customized Going International approach looks to ensure your planning is considering both the big picture and how to meet concrete goals.
When organizations are at a key juncture in their development or would like to develop or strengthen an internationally oriented program, Going International’s knowledge of organizations and the international arena can be especially aligned to the organization’s needs.
Having worked in the global arena for the past few decades, much of this time helping organizations to engage internationally, Bonnie’s experiences are well aligned to organizations looking to expand their global outreach. This work can include stakeholder interviews and other background research, recommendation on strategies, and advice on taking these strategies forward.
When an organization’s leadership has a general idea of what they would like to accomplish, but not the specifics of how the process (leading to sustainable outcomes) might work, using her depth of experience in this area as an executive director and consultant, Bonnie can help leadership to design and facilitate the steps in the process, through the planning and implementation stages.
When it might be useful to have a ‘trusted guide’ through a challenging process, Bonnie’s coaching expertise supports senior staff members and volunteer leadership on their journey through various implementation phases. Bonnie’s combined knowledge of strategic planning (how to design effective and practical goals) combined with in-depth knowledge of how organizations actually operate, help ensure a strategy that meets the organization’s needs.
Bonnie uses her facilitation skills within the broader support areas noted above. She also will work on projects that specifically call for a strong or primarily facilitation role including strategy retreats and workshops (in person and virtually). She specializes in working with multicultural and multinational groups.
