I’ve got big dreams. Yours.
Hi! I’m Michelle Lampher, founder and president of NonprofitCoach™ and Better World Strategies LLC. I specialize in leadership coaching for nonprofit leaders just like you.
Because my big dream is to help you make your dreams for a better world come true.
I understand the unique challenges nonprofit executives and emerging leaders like you face each and every day. I believe in the good work your organization is doing. I believe in your team. And I believe in you.
I want to help you develop the nonprofit leadership mindset and skillset that will enable you to build on your strengths, break through your boundaries, and close the gap between good intention and inspired action.
I know you’ve got what it takes to reach new heights. I want to help you step into that space to inspire greatness, leverage passion, build capacity and heighten performance among your team. In short, I want to help you become the nonprofit leader you know you’re meant to be.
By connecting you to world-class ideas, resources, training and leadership development opportunities. By gathering and sharing the most effective and actionable advice on nonprofit leadership—from leading authorities and the latest research. By serving up practical tips, quick start tools, and robust nonprofit leadership and coaching skills training.
And, most importantly, by providing powerful leadership coaching that challenges you, supports you and dares you to succeed.
In 2004 after more than a decade in leadership positions in the nonprofit sector, I launched Better World Strategies LLC to serve the international development, education, conservation and humanitarian organizations that inspire me most. As a management consultant, I provided a wide range of strategic planning and organizational development services.
Over the years, my thinking about how best to serve the nonprofit community evolved. I came to realize that the best outcomes result from helping current and aspiring nonprofit leaders develop and leverage their own leadership capacities. And so, a little over a decade later, I set course in a new direction and NonprofitCoach™ was born.
Along the way, I was offered the privilege of serving as division chief with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
In this capacity, I managed an annual budget of more than $80 million, public-private partnerships with some of the world’s leading nonprofit international education and development organizations, and the network of more than 90 nonprofit international visitor centers throughout the U.S.—which together with our embassies abroad—carry out the U.S. government’s premier international exchange, the International Visitor Leadership Program.
Alumni of this prestigious program include more than 335 chiefs of state and heads of government, thousands of cabinet-level ministers, and many other distinguished government and NGO leaders from around the world. I am honored to have served this extraordinary community of world leaders—just as I look forward to the honor of serving you.
Because my big dream is to help you accomplish yours.
