SOLUTION:  Fundraising With Limited Resources

Fundraising without sufficient budget or authority to implement policies and processes can be challenging.  ECI has solutions!  “I’ve never had the luxury of a well-funded fundraising office,” Dion McInnis said, “so I had to develop programs, processes and mindsets that involved more people in the process and helping them understand their roles.  It also called for limiting time wasters that included some programs and people.”  Use his lessons to be successful without a large budget. Special services for nonprofits with limited resources.

SOLUTION:  Growing Healthy, Happy, Successful Teams in Challenging Times

Healthy, happy teams are those who honor and celebrate their own abilities, recognize and respect it in others, and have “permission” for open communications.  It is a question of morale.  Morale is not boosted, it is built; it is not an emotion, it is a mindset.  Enable communications, empower success and exhibit leadership and you’ll have a team that handles change and challenges with grace and success. Improve retention, enhance success, and minimize “sick” days.

SOLUTION:  Finding Voice and Expression, and Sharing

It seems that women have not fully owned their voices and men have not owned their emotions.  Most people are missing half of their potential as human beings.  We need both voice and emotion; they work together.  ECI programs can help you find your voice and learn how to express it in words, images and other artistic methods.  You will then learn how to share.  By sharing from our creative pursuits, we can better connect with each other and understand ourselves and each other.
