HELPING LEADERS LEAD
"Feedback is the breakfast of champions." - Ken Blanchard
Good leaders understand their role and have a clear vision for accomplishing the job. They also recognize the importance of feedback. Feedback inside and outside their sphere of influence.
Why? Because leaders who circle back—asking, "How am I doing?", "What are we doing right?", "What are we doing wrong?", "How can we improve?"—are substantially more effective than leaders who don't.
Circle-Back is about helping leaders of service-oriented organizations be more effective. We work with nonprofits, providing valuable feedback and practical solutions for leaders and their team.
We offer 12-types of Valuable Feedback

How We Do It
The most fundamental thing about leadership is to have the humility to continue to get feedback and to try to get better – because your job is to try to help everybody else get better.” - Jim Kim
To help you get better we ask, listen,
facilitate, instruct, create, implement,
evaluate and follow-up. We don't
point fingers or focus on short-
comings. We work to help you
and your team get better. You
may require a phone call or two,
an on-site visit, a staff seminar, week-
long training session, a management or
facility review... or an endorsement for other resources. We work collaboratively
with you and your team and focus on where you are, and where you want to be.
What Folks Are Sayin'
Circle-back helped us get our nonprofit moving forward. We had a good framework, good ideas, and some interested parties, but needed some extra help getting it up and running and developing a team to get it across the finish line. Ben is great at developing a mission; listening to all parties involved; affirming differences of opinions; keeping the team organized; while not losing momentum. Highly recommended.
