WE ARE MIGHTY CONSULTING

Supporting Minnesota Nonprofits, Collaboratives, and Leaders

The Most Experienced Non-profit Interim Leadership in the Twin Cities

ABOUT US

Roger and Melissa bring optimism, energy, and fresh ideas to our work, and bring out the same in others.

We bring more than thirty years of relationships, leadership, facilitation, and management experience in nonprofits, partnerships, and community-based organizations.

The team at Mighty Consulting has worked with a wide variety of nonprofits, partnerships, government entities, and community groups as they experience transition. The insights and knowledge gained from our experience allow us to support organizations as they grapple with internal and external change.

Through a facilitative and no-nonsense leadership style, Mighty Consulting builds consensus and keeps organizations, collaborations, and projects moving – supporting them through transition and leaving them stronger and more focused on the other side.

Read about our commitment to Racial Equity

After the murder of Philando Castile and again during the 2020 uprisings, Melissa and Roger increased the time spent reflecting on racial justice and white supremacy culture. We continue to examine our own thinking, feelings, and privilege as individuals, as well as with our business, to find ways to continue our journey as an anti-racist company. We are learning together and with our clients to embed anti-racism in our business. While we do not pretend to have the answers, we understand this exploration is not over and are committed to undoing systems of oppression. To that end, Mighty Consulting demonstrates our commitment to racial justice in the following ways:

  • We continue to cultivate our own individual understanding and skills to practice racial equity through learning, listening, reflection, and relationship-building.
  • We challenge actions, policies, and practices that prevent fair and equitable opportunities.
  • We seek out opportunities to learn and understand the changing dynamics of the nonprofit sector, contribute to its transformation, and support organizations in doing the same.
  • We embrace opportunities to challenge the status quo and address racial equity and justice for organizations that must reckon with their own practices, policies, and histories.
  • We expand and share power with our network of BIPOC contractors and vendors.
  • We recognize this work is ongoing and look for opportunities to learn and grow going forward.

What Our Clients Say

Mighty Consulting created a transition plan for me in my ED role at Forecast Public Art, as I was seeking to step down as ED and move into a program that played to my strengths. It was a major step toward my succession plan. Roger helped prepare the board to focus on this challenging effort. It was a good experience, with great facilitation led by Roger. We ended up with a plan and the board ended up hiring a great new leader for Forecast.

Wow Melissa. I am impressed.

In my tenure as a board member, I have never experienced anything as rewarding as the past two days. Thank you for your dedication, commitment, and expertise. We needed you and I feel blessed to have found you.

MoveFwd

Mighty Consulting was a great partner in our search for a new Executive Director. They were informed, knowledgeable, experienced and proactive in all of their interactions with our Board, staff and applicants. They also secured an interim ED who stabilized our organization until the new ED was on board. Mighty lived up to their name!
Neighbors, Inc.

Melissa - Nice work today! This morning’s board meeting was a definite mood-booster for me. There is so much going on internally this month, and the uncertainty of the renewals has been stressing me out a bit but stepping back to see what a good place we are in and having you leading the ship feels really good.

We went with Roger Meyer of Mighty Consulting, and I would do it again every day of the week. Roger is a fantastic facilitator and an even finer human, and he would be a reliable and trustworthy partner for your planning process.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all of your hard work throughout the ED search process. I appreciate you handling all the curve balls with so much grace. I must say I truly think you found our Unicorn! I wish you much success in the future.
Banyan Community

Melissa, I just wanted to call and say thank you for everything that you did to get the Redesign search through to completion... All the time you put into it and your availability at times of short notice and your willingness to push to the schedule that we felt we needed to be on, that was an excellent job. We had a Board meeting last night where multiple people commented on how much of a support you were in the success of the process.
Bush Foundation

Roger Meyer has helped Tiwahe Foundation in so many ways! He has helped us twice with interim organization management, and he recently helped us recruit and hire our new leader. He provided solid advice and steady guidance that helped us through a difficult time, and he left us in a great place to move forward. I highly recommend working with Roger and his team!
Tiwahe Foundation

Our candidate was extremely complementary of you about how you managed the process on P+P’s behalf, and we echo her compliments. Truly. We have sung your praises behind your back throughout the entire process. You were wise, patient, insightful, measured, and enthusiastic at all the times we needed you to be.

East Metro Crisis Alliance

As I’ve joined the board (and as a former committee member) it has become increasingly clear how large your role is with CCH and how much of the work that has moved forward has done so under your guidance. You lead in a calm, intentional, and caring manner while always softly keeping the conversations and work moving forward. You model open and thoughtful communication and sharing while navigating the messiness of a growing/changing CCH - so much has happened under your watch.

I have worked with Mighty Consulting on a range of projects, and they always come through with just what I need at a price my small nonprofit organization can afford.

Mike Beltowsky, Vice President Program Development

We had our board meeting on Tuesday and feed back was that the board was very impressed with the meeting and process. `{`They`}` even stated that `{`they`}` had been involved in many strategic planning events over the years and most were not as productive as our 4 hours were!
