Is Your Organization Running Efficiently?

Why You Should Consider Hiring a Consultant

Your organization is important and what you do has a positive impact on our society. For twenty years, Charmaine Torma, founder of Charmaine Torma Consulting (CTC), has committed her life to helping organizations, like yours, advance their missions. Sadly, the vast majority of organizations are unknowingly sabotaging their efforts to serve their clients. The biggest mistake I see is that they aren’t investing the time and resources when it comes to administration.

It’s All About Your Services, Right?

Most staff often don’t think administrative tasks are as important as the work that directly impacts the mission. They are usually hyper-focused on programs and services and don’t make time for the necessary administrative tasks such as marketing, communications, finance, and especially constituent engagement. The thing is, without this administrative work, your organization cannot exist.

No, It’s Not Just About the Services You Offer!

Think about it. You need to have a brand for your organization, and it needs to be distinguishable from other agencies doing similar work. To keep your stakeholders engaged, you need to communicate with them regularly. It’s necessary for them to hear about the good works you are doing to better the community. And, if you’re a not-for-profit, earned income isn’t enough to sustain the work that you do. You have to actively secure individuals to invest philanthropically in your organization.

Don’t Forget about Leadership

However, to achieve any of this your leadership needs to be effective and inspirational. Your organization and the individuals you serve will suffer if you have bad leadership. Strong leaders aren’t born; they are developed. Investing in their development is essential.

Taking Your Organization to the Next Level

Are you looking to take your organization to the next level? It starts with doing a 360° analysis. This includes examining how you recruit, hire, and develop staff. Looking at your marketing and communication strategies. And reviewing your standard operating procedures.
