As the founder and executive director for a new nonprofit organization, the Addiction Policy Forum, I was incredibly fortunate to have Adaptive Alternatives on board from the beginning to assist with strategy and planning, nonprofit start up guidance, board development and fundraising support. Stephanie brings an amazing wealth of knowledge and expertise and can help guide nonprofit managers and boards to meet their goals.

Our new strategic plan is bringing St. Louis Center to a new level for its services.  Our whole group has benefitted by our work with Stephanie. All of our staff members are focusing more on the specific tasks of their departments in order to reach collaborative goals.

For the last 3 years, I have partnered with Stephanie to design and facilitate intensive leadership development experiences for the 70 leaders participating in several cohorts of Leadership Detroit. Stephanie brings energy and creativity to her work while maintaining a sense of balance with the need for measurable outcomes. The traits she brings to the table are critical to informing and energizing our work together.

It was a joy to work with Stephanie. I felt several light bulbs go off as she guided me through the Conscious Leadership techniques while adding her own perfect wisdom and insight.
