Craig Smith Consulting: Crafting the perfect solution for your group or business. We provide facilitation, planning and training to nonprofits, for-profits, government and community based organizations in the Northwest. Our assistance is tailored to your unique needs or situation. And we always include follow-up coaching to help you as you move forward.


Do you need help with clarifying roles and responsibilities; engaging board members, stakeholders and volunteers; improving communication, resolving disagreements, and/or building collaborative agreement? We design our facilitation assistance to get you the outcomes you desire whether for a 2-hour meeting or a multi-day retreat.


Our planning assistance will guide you through crafting or refining your mission, vision and/or logic model. We then will help you create goals, strategies and an action plan that details the steps for moving forward. The action plan answers the questions; who is responsible, who will help, the timing for getting it completed, the cost and what success looks like. We can also help you organize for implementation and provide coaching moving forward too. The plans we facilitate are inclusive, consensus oriented and dynamic. They won’t just sit on a shelf.


Whether you are looking for one-on-one coaching and skill building or training for your board, staff or volunteers, we can help. We customize the training for you. Key topics include: Asset Based Community Development, Appreciative Inquiry, Board Roles and Responsibilities, Budgeting, Building Agreement, Collaborations and Partnerships, Communication, Economic Development, Effective Meetings, Fundraising, Marketing and PR, Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Planning and Project Implementation, Stakeholder Engagement, Transition Planning and Change, and Volunteer Engagement and Management.
