Navigate Change Easily With Affordable Training & Know How

Leadership transition? Programmatic upheaval? Staff turnover? Pathfinder can help you find your way.

Pilot Peak Consulting is named after a mountain in northwest Wyoming that served as a beacon for pioneers seeking a path through the unchartered wilderness that became Yellowstone National Park. Just as the mountain helped explorers find their way, Pilot Peak’s Pathfinder program will help your organization navigate the challenges that stand between you and your goals.

With over 16 years of proven fundraising success, we know a lot about organizational change. We know that your organization constantly faces change – Board turnover, new programs, staffing changes. We also know that, as it was for explorers confronting a vast wilderness, change is daunting and the path forward isn’t always clear. Most importantly, we know that whether your organization thrives depends upon its ability to successfully navigate the challenge of change.

Pathfinder provides your organization with a seasoned guide to help you navigate change. Rather than simply doing the work for you, we educate you, your staff, and your board so you build internal capacity for long-term, sustainable change that will help you reach your goals.  We understand that while your goals are vast, the path to the summit is not always clear.
