Consulting Expertise

Ask the right questions. Listen carefully. Engage. Repeat.

At the heart of our consulting practice is our approach to the work we do – seeking meaningful connections, aiming at highest potential, and engaging in ways that bring out the best in people and organizations. Much of our expertise can be grouped into the categories below, but we have often undertaken unique projects that are, well, different. We’re always happy to talk about what might be possible.

Trusted Governance Counsel

The challenges and demands facing today’s community benefit organizations are most visible in the direct service, public arena of programs and services. It’s at the board table, however, where the incredible potential of community service truly rests. Governance volunteers are charged with significant responsibilities, but often given little in the way of support for their vital roles. EnMark Associates works with boards to assess their capacity and align their efforts solidly behind vision and mission. From informal board development discussions to intensive governance renewal projects, we have helped individual board volunteers contribute their very best and provided expertise, sound advice and inspiring supports to board teams driven to do better.

“We don’t need governance for the sake of governance – we need it for the results it can provide.”  Hildy Gottlieb, Creating the Future
