"Our foundation has worked with Nate for our own strategic planning. He has been a huge asset as his focused thoughts and personal values have provided some great insight and kept us a number of times from “mission drift.” In additon, we have contracted with Nate to help with administrative coaching in our schools and have brought Nate back multiple times to hold workshops in both the community and the schools. Simply put, Nate gets it!"
- Sheri Miller, Charmm'd Foundation (Chicago, IL)
Quite simply, Eklund Consulting works with administrators around one key principle:
NOTHING IMPROVES STAFF CULTURE AND TEACHER JOB SATISFACTION MORE THAN A WELL-RUN ORGANIZATION.
We give administrators the guidance necessary to improve how they manage the challenges and opportunities unique to school staffs, like creating new and inclusive leadership structures, auditing resources and how they’re used, and internal communication practices around how information is gathered, processed and disseminated.
Above all, we believe that as important as it is for faculty and staff to love their jobs, it’s equally critical that administrators love theirs.
The issues and feelings that keep administrators up at night and force them to lose focus on the real job of leading a school?
We get rid of those.
