these events listening and truly understanding our mission, thereby

ideas that I believe have helped us move forward in making Riverside a

Christine Singer facilitated our latest strategic planning process at the United Arc. First let me say it was a pleasure to work with her. She brings extraordinary skill and enthusiasm to her work. She is insightful and well versed in the operation, function and needs of not-for-profit organizations. Much to her credit, the final plan belongs to us. She is able to find the shared hopes and aspirations of all of the participants and mold them into a plan that is comprehensive, functional and allows us to shape our future.
Strategic planning is part of the DNA of the United Arc. We have used the process to direct our future for the last twenty five year and have had many consultants helping us develop our plans. I can say, without reservation, that Christine is the best person we have worked with in this role.

Christine Singer was engaged by this organization to work closely with me and a planning committee to design and execute a strategic planning process that would meet our unique needs. There was some skepticism among members of the staff since prior experiences with strategic planning resulted in creating a document that was left to gather dust. Christine’s approach was practical, pragmatic, and thorough resulting in not only a vibrant strategic plan but also a Values Statement and a revised Mission Statement. Eighteen months after the completion of the process, I can say with confidence that our plan has kept the organization focused on our goals and our future. Although Christine has long since finished her assignment with us, she continues to show interest and forward information and resources to me that will be of value to the organization.

After serving in non profit leadership for over 15 years I wasn’t sure how coaching would add value to my work. Working with Ken Singer proved an invaluable tool in helping me get out of the day to day to reflect, clarify and execute on the vision I had for the future. Ken coached, questioned, and engaged me in dynamic and strategic conversations about my priorities. He was generous and insightful in helping me cut through the noise to identify a clear and effective strategy. His experience, direct and engaging style were invaluable and I am extremely grateful for his support.
