The Wilson County Substance Prevention Coalition received its first HRSA grant to focus on the opioid epidemic in rural North Carolina and had just onboard a new project director. The INCITE team quickly and efficiently jumped in to operationalize this new strategic initiative, guiding staff and coalition members in setting up the infrastructure and project management systems necessary to successfully manage federal grants. INCITE was also able to provide subject matter expertise and network facilitation to successfully meet all federal deliverables and timelines. Through this engagement, the Wilson Coalition was able to develop stronger partners in the community, to access new funding streams, and collectively to more than double the Coalition’s operational budget.
ANCOR is a national advocacy association representing community providers of services to people with disabilities. Their mission is to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities fully participate in their communities. ANCOR wanted to take a bold step to grow exponentially, to represent a larger community of providers, and to strengthen ANCOR’s advocacy voice in Washington DC. Over the past three years, INCITE has provided valuable expertise and project management support, extending staff capacity, and helping ANCOR to develop and implement a new membership model, more than tripling overall membership and membership engagement.
Our unique, people-first approach to strategic planning helped Community Counseling Center successfully implement a new executive decision-making infrastructure and identify strategic initiatives that built upon CCC’s strong foundation of revenue growth, leadership development, and employee engagement. INCITE’s engagement resulted in the creation of team leader positions which reduced supervisory loads, capitalized on the innovation and passion of clinical supervisors and mid-level staff, and provided opportunity for motivated employees to take on new responsibilities. INCITE’s guidance to the leadership team helped the CEO and executive staff look at organizational health from a different perspective. The strategic blueprint that INCITE developed, and the parallel consultation, helped CCC operationalize their updated plan and measure the results.
