Personal Mentor & Coach
Bill Zipp shaped our Leadership Academy since its inception and provided ten years of valuable resources and tools. Most importantly, however, he was a personal mentor and coach to 102 graduate fellows from 26 different organizations. We love this program and are grateful for Bill’s leadership in founding and facilitating it.
Unity & Clarity in Transition
We were privileged to have Bill Zipp serve us during a critical period of transition in our organization. His leadership by example and breadth of experience brought unity and clarity to our team, laying the groundwork for our current expansion efforts.
Building Strong Peer Relationships
I had the privilege of being a fellow in LeadingAge Oregon’s Leadership Academy, facilitated by Bill Zipp. Bill’s engaging communication style wove together participants’ experiences with his own leadership journey. It was powerful and effective. He created a rich learning environment where strong peer relationships were built simultaneously.
Strategic Planning Sessions
We’re so thankful for Bill Zipp’s expertise in facilitating our strategic planning sessions. His wide breadth of knowledge regarding nonprofit best practices helped our board and staff prioritize the groundwork that needed to be completed to accomplish our short term goals. Bill fully customized his engagement with us so we knew exactly where we were at as an organization and what next steps were needed to achieve our long term goals.
360 Degree Assessment Tool
Bill Zipp has equipped our board in significant ways over the years. He guided us through a complicated process of merging two 501(c)(3) organizations, helped us set up a first-rate board onboarding process, and developed an outstanding 360-degree performance assessment tool. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to any nonprofit board.
