“Coaching Non-Profit Leaders to Sustainable Success”

Do you experience these frustrations?

  • “No-one else understands exactly what my role is or the pressures I face. It's lonely at the top"
  • “There is a lack of clarity or active disagreement by our Board Members of what our strategic direction should be”
  • “I feel overwhelmed much of the time”
  • “I seem to spend most of my time in “Management Mode” and seldom get the chance to focus on my “Leadership” role”
  • “I end up avoiding many important tasks”
  • “I often wonder whether I am doing a good enough job”
  • “I have no sense of balance in my life. I feel like I need to work days, nights and weekends and have no time for others, let alone myself”

Hi-I'm Craig. I’ve had the pleasure of working and coaching within and around the Non-Profit sector for over 25 years.

I know first-hand many of the challenges that go along with the role you’ve assumed.  Whether you're new to the field and must quickly get up to speed, or you’ve been around a while and are looking to rejuvenate your role, I’d love to chat about how I might support your success!

As the primary caretaker of their organization, a non-profit Executive Director must wear multiple hats: visionary, stakeholder engager, organizational change agent, relationship builder, and primary fundraiser. The responsibilities of an executive position, especially at smaller and growing organizations, can seem limitless.


Working together we will:


  •  Assess your competency and confidence across 9 Core Competency Areas.

  • Co-create a personal development plan that leverages your strengths and builds on weaker competency areas.

  • Create a personal sustainable workflow that advances your Organization’s Mission and Vision while ensuring personal balance.

  • Enhance your ability to maintain equilibrium and take mindful, values-based action in the face of rapidly changing and challenging circumstances. 

Start by booking a 30-minute introductory call with me (free and no obligations). On the call I can learn more about your needs and challenges and we can work out whether we’re a good fit for one another. I'll then send you a no-obligation proposal that addresses the specific problems and objectives that you'd like to work on.

I first came to Craig while working on my PhD at the University of Oxford as I was failing to make progress on writing my thesis. I had tried two other coaches previously but they didn't work out. My experience with Craig was categorically different. Whereas the other coaches seemed to have a boilerplate approach to coaching driven by worksheets and platitudes, Craig really listened and understood the problems and behaviors I was struggling with. Over repeated sessions, he was amazing at spotting negative patterns in my behavior that I couldn't see myself and at providing concrete guidance on how to address those self-defeating habits. In the time that I've been working with Craig I've accomplished things I didn't think were possible. I've completed my PhD, published multiple peer-reviewed papers, finished three triathlons, and established a loving, healthy relationship with my soon-to-be wife. I can honestly say that all of this would not have been possible without Craig's steady, insightful guidance keeping me on track.
