Tom Williams, Capacity Builder
Tom is a Capacity Builder who sees nonprofit organizations from a “team” perspective—many moving parts, each having a significant role to play in mission accomplishment. When each member masters their individual role, the ultimate success of the team comes down to how well the players interact. Capacity building is about enhancing this role clarity, increasing team member skills and assisting the team to relate more effectively among themselves and with the community.
Building on his time as an Executive Director, Tom has been working with nonprofits since 1996 to enhance these key capacity building areas through individual coaching sessions, group facilitation and topic-specific workshops.
Tom delights in contributing to individuals, groups, or entire teams having a breakthrough toward a stronger team. From his perspective, it’s these strong, results-focused teams that realize change in their communities.
Fundraising is a focus on meeting a dollar goal, while philanthropy is about people feeling good about giving and giving back to your organization. If an organization focuses on philanthropy, they ultimately generate more sustainable resources and these strong relationships can weather storms and help an organization grow while others shrink in tough economic times.
