What We Do
Just Works Consulting helps ethical businesses, nonprofits, networks, schools, and social entrepreneurs develop thriving organizations. Our services range from assistance with specific projects, such as business plans, meeting facilitation and feasibility studies, to helping organizations with their biggest challenges, such as leading change initiatives or strategic planning.
Just Works applies our knowledge of organizational development, social change, leadership, business planning, cooperatives, education, social capital, and global supply chains to help clients develop their visions and achieve their goals. We incorporate the most creative and effective practices that we’ve learned from the nonprofit, cooperative and ethical business sectors to create customized services for each client.
