Readiness Check for Nonprofit Leaders
The Readiness Check survey is designed for nonprofit professionals to get feedback on key leadership skills and attributes. The dimensions are specifically tailored for leaders working toward senior-level positions including the Executive Director/CEO role.
The feedback report provides a snapshot of levels of proficiency on 15 competencies in 2 key areas of nonprofit leadership: Technical Skills and Leadership Skills.
Readiness Check Process:
Set the context:
Invite your Supervisor or a Trusted Advisor (mentor, former manager, trusted peer) to complete the survey to give you feedback.
Complete your Personal Career Check to review your career preferences.
Complete the Readiness Assessment survey via email and SurveyMonkey. The questionnaire takes about 20 minutes to complete. Your results will be combined with your Supervisor's input to create one feedback report. You, the participant, will receive the only copy.
Review your feedback report in a facilitated session. During the review, you will place your feedback in the context of your Personal Career Check. You will compare your input with the assessment of your Supervisor to highlight your strengths and those areas that are opportunities to grow. And, you will capture any questions you want to discuss with your Supervisor and trusted mentor and peers.
Create your Personal Development Plan to build on your core strengths and develop your areas of growth.
"Betsy is an excellent coach for my preparation for my upcoming interview. She helped me improve the phrasing for any of my answers and I have gained confidence in my ability to present myself and highlight my accomplishments. I recommend her coaching to anyone who wants to improve their interview skills."

"I feel like our family has discovered a secret weapon to assist our son who is a recent college graduate navigating the overwhelming and confusing entry-level job interview process. Betsy was professional and kind and gave him the confidence he needed to effectively present his skills and accomplishments during interviews. I highly recommend contacting Betsy at Wallace Leadership Consulting ASAP!"

“Betsy has saved me several times with regard to my career challenges. She has delivered tremendous coaching, wisdom, and support. She draws from many years of experience at Fortune 500 companies for which she has worked in sales, executive development and human resources, and 1-1 coaching roles. This gives her a wealth of knowledge and some very unique and valuable perspectives. Importantly, she helped me prepare for my interviews which built tremendous confidence and inspired an extremely positive approach."

"Superb facilitation skills. Valuable 1-1 Coach. Betsy facilitated a 2-hour planning meeting for my staff of 15. The team-building exercise she designed was very powerful and strengthened relationships between team members. Equally valuable for me, Betsy gave me important feedback and insightful recommendations to help me create the right organizational culture for my team."
