From the moment we engaged Michelle Turman, we experienced a full-level of service and commitment to our Executive Director search. Catalyst Consulting Services is a firm that is exceptionally knowledgeable about non-profit executive search processes, potential candidates, candidate screening, and organizational assessment and documentation. Michelle took the time to connect with everyone in our organization, from the staff to the Board, to gain a complete understanding of where we are, the steps we need to take to grow to the next level, and the type of leader that was needed to make these changes happen. Her extensive and varied experience in the non-profit world is unparallel, and her commitment to excellence and passion is palpable. She performed an operational assessment, wrote an employee policy handbook, made recommendations to improve our board governance, recommended strategies for new board member recruitment, and conducted a successful executive director search.

Michelle’s facilitation skills, communication, and non-profit knowledge provided a smooth and effective process that resulted in a very high caliber candidate. It is a daunting task to find a successor to a founder, and yet Michelle approached it with confidence and professionalism. We’re grateful for Michelle’s assistance in recruiting a strong candidate to lead The Heart Gallery of Tampa to the next level.
