Sage Consulting Services, LLC

I am a Business & Personal Coach empowering nonprofit leaders and top talent! I am a Business & Personal Coach with over 20 years' experience in various sectors, and seven years’ experience empowering not-for-profit leaders and organizations to see themselves as and act as for-profit organizations.

I believe that productivity in any organization, especially not-for-profits, is directly linked to how the members of that organization are functioning, both at the individual and group level. When the members of the organization increase their personal and group awareness, and like each other more, they will naturally work better together, increasing the overall productivity in the organization. This will, over time, increase profitability.

A Racial Reckoning at Doctors Without Borders

#nonprofits, just like for-profit organizations, engage in acts of #Discrimination, inequity, and institutionalized #racism far too often. This story:



from @reveal (the podcast and radio investigative #nonprofit) highlights sickening behavior within @MSF, or #DoctorswithoutBorders.

Our organizations are meant to raise our collective quality of life. How we go about achieving this will outline our success or failure.

It’s a curious pattern of behavior we humans act out—the ones with difficult fathers, mothers, and childhoods often create great leaders.

Think Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Celine Dion, Jim Carrey, Demi Moore, Mike Dooley, Tony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey, Barack Obama, Scott Harrison, and yours truly.

I sometimes forget that
I was created for joy
My mind is too busy
My heart is too heavy
Heavy for me to remember
that I have been
called to dance
the sacred dance for life
I was created to smile
to love
to be lifted up
and lift others up
O sacred one
Untangle my feet
from all that ensnares
Free my soul
That we might
Dance
and that our dancing
might be contagious.

Performance vs. Trust

[09/17/21]   Few things are more wildly out-of-control in our world than the contemporary media outlets.

[09/15/21]   The inherent dilemma of the #nonprofit sector is our failure to satisfy the following supply and demand equation:

For-profit business:
Business produces a wanted product and sells it;
client pays money for product and owns it.
Transaction resolved, leaving both parties satisfied.

Nonprofit organization:
Entity (charity, association) sells interest in eradicating an evil or connecting like-minded people;
donor buys into the vision and donates.
Transaction unresolved, leaving the donor feeling unappreciated and used.

Want evidence that we discriminate against #nonprofit organizations? Look at this report from the Charity Defense Council about an investigative report by CBS News and how they tainted the report to make a national #charity look evil: https://buff.ly/3mE0T3k.

It is amazing how we stifle our own progress to our own detriment.

[08/30/21]   From Dan Pallotta:

“When people say no one in a #nonprofit should earn much money they think they are advocating for those in need.
What they are actually saying is that those in need don’t deserve the kind of high-priced talent that goes into selling leisure and luxury.”

This is the purpose behind creating a social sector that is self-sustaining. We will truly end cancer, homelessness, hunger, poverty, and all our other social ills…if we are brave enough to invest in the vehicles that are actually working to solve them.
