Shift Governance


Shift Governance

Strategy + Operations

Shift Strategies governance includes strategic planning, inclusive culture, and board development services for organizations. Our time tested process includes a series of facilitated sessions and interviews with stakeholders to determine current and future state. Deliverables include board performance assessment, inclusive culture survey and recommendations, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging training, organizational analysis, roles and responsibilities, policies and procedures, strategic plan development and implementation recommendations, and progress tracking dashboards. Vision, mission, values and guiding principles are validated or developed, if none exist, to provide the foundation for planning.

Our planning ensures vision is integrated into the culture of organization to facilitate successful implementation, accountability and ownership.   We work with board members to understand their role in governance and planning.  We work with staff to ensure operations are clearly understood by the board and aligned with strategic direction.  Our facilitation skills assist in creating alignment and engagement among board members and staff to ensure all voices are heard and to move the organization forward in achieving its goals.

Some of our non-profit clients include Boise Contemporary Theater, Boise Urban Garden School, Girls on the Run, Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation, Idaho Foodbank, Idaho Women’s Charitable Foundation, Jannus, Terry Reilly Health Services, Treasure Valley Institute for Children’s Arts (TRICA), the Village Charter School,  Women Innovators.

“We worked with Beth and Shift Strategies for several years in the early stages of establishing a board of directors and programming/services for the Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS). She assisted us with board development, strategic planning and operations. Beth is a trusted partner whose ability to listen, facilitate and guide were invaluable in helping BUGS lay the foundation for our services, programs and community partnerships.” Deb Holleran / Former Board President / BUGS
