Whether in the form of consultants, trainers, coaches, or freelancers, nonprofits of all sizes are looking to outside experts to help them solve today’s complex problems. The promise is magical: An outsider swoops in and works on issues that have gone unresolved. The reality is more complicated.

It’s up to you to know what kind of problem you have, the experience you need, and the kind of person you can work with. And, while credentials abound, there is no universal marker that says that your consultant knows how to consult. Plus, there’s the challenge of managing the project in a way that gets the most out of your investment.

It’s a risky endeavor to hire a consultant: significant dollars, time, and reputations are often on the line. Educating yourself and your team about this rarely talked-about subject can have a huge payoff for your organization.

Join two practicing consultants with a combined 40+ years of experience advising nonprofits to learn the honest scoop about how you can best prepare for and gain results from your next engagement.
