ArtSpectives The Art of Consultation

 

ArtSpectives’ objective for our clients is to reduce resistance and stagnation in career or workplace allowing for more productivity, satisfaction, and harmony. We bring these desired effects to our clients by our keen abilities to observe, identify, and designate. Why hire a consultant? Let me use the words taken from Entrepreneur Media Inc to answer that question.

A consultant has the right expertise. A consultant may be hired to identify problems. Sometimes employees are too close to a problem inside an organization to identify a problem. A consultant can act as a catalyst for change. No one likes change, especially corporate America. But sometimes change is needed, and a consultant may be brought in to implement the changes. A consultant provides much-needed objectivity. Who else is more qualified to identify a problem than a consultant? A good consultant provides an objective and fresh viewpoint. A consultant may be hired to do the "dirty work." Let's face it: No one wants to be the person who has to make cuts in the staff or to eliminate an entire division. An impartial outside consultant is the perfect person to handle such unpleasant tasks. A consultant can bring new life to an organization. At one time or another, most businesses need someone to administer "first aid" to get things rolling again; a consultant has good ideas. A consultant may be hired to influence other people. You may hire a consultant based on who they know.

If you would like to learn more about our services and consultation approach and how it would boost your company’s productivity, employee satisfaction and retention, or set you in the right direction towards career fulfillment and personal greatness, then please, give ArtSpectives a chance!

THE GLASS MENAGERIE - The Aux Dog Theatre takes great pride in bringing this brilliant work of timeless artistry to our stage.
 
THE GLASS MENAGERIE by one of America’s greatest playwrights, Tennessee Williams, is being presented in a radical reimagining of this mid-century masterpiece. The Aux Dog Theatre production directed by veteran theatre artist, Frederick Ponzlov, departs from the traditional casting of the play and instead casts the central character of Tom as an aged 70 year old. This choice intensifies the memory aspects of the play and brings a new and innovative perspective to this classic.
 
You’ve not seen a GLASS MENAGERIE like this!

The Avix Integrated Arts Team has arrived in Rio Rancho! We are here to positively impact the Rio Rancho culture. The Team’s plans will be implemented in three phases. 

Phase one is already complete, and we now own a 27,000 square foot commercial building zoned for education. The Avix Integrated Arts building is located across from Intel on Sara Road and will house the four institutions that will change the face of cultural amenities in Rio Rancho and the greater region. 

Phase two, includes a Charter School for the Performing and Visual Arts to become operational for the 2021/ 2022 school year and will serve middle and high school students. Also part of phase two is an after school program for the performing and visual arts that will operate at the same location as the charter school but will run once the students attending the charter school are dismissed. This will be a great opportunity for students who are serious in their art form to remain at one location and receive their core content and art curriculum without the exhausting daily commute. This after school program will be a conservatory-type program, which will serve and educate children and adults with high quality art curriculum generated from the national standards. This program will begin June 8, 2020 with an inaugural intense summer workshops. 

Phase three will be to establish a professional ballet company and a professional theater company, which will offer world-class performances in their genres, generating significant business and educational opportunities for the Rio Rancho community.

Are you making the transition into a manager role after coordinating programming for several years? Join us to learn how to set your leadership values and coach your direct reports. 

Learning Objectives

  • Understand common challenges all managers face as they move into management from individual contributor roles.
  • Define their personal leadership values and understand how values help leaders lead.
  • Understand how Sir John Whitmore's GROW model for coaching (as outlined in the book Coaching for Performance) can help them coach themselves, and their direct reports
  • Learn about leadership development resources, including mentoring, free online courses and books that can help them in their leadership development journey.

Description

Many nonprofit managers advance into management because they are successful individual contributors. But moving into management is a career change! Effective managers must utilize a completely different mindset – and skillset – to succeed in their new role. In this workshop, we will explore how things change when individual contributors become managers; engage in self-exploration around leadership values; learn a simple framework for coaching conversations; and also discuss further leadership development resources.

Audience

Managers who have been managing direct reports for less than a year, or who have been managing more than a year (but less than 5 years) and are struggling with specific challenges.

Education leaders, please join us at the beautiful Bosque Retreat Center for an inspirational and restorative three-day retreat. Each spring, the Sofia Center for Professional Development at Bosque School brings together education leaders from public, independent, and charter schools, pre-K through university level, along with education leaders working beyond schools, for three days of inquiry, rejuvenation, and strategy focused on leading with intention and passion.
 
What is Wild Leadership?
The Wild Leadership Retreat began in 2015 as an exploration of what it means to lead with courage and wisdom, defining wild as going being conventional expectations and doing so with passion. Over the last five years, the Sofia Center has developed a set of eight Wild Leadership principles, informed by a wide range of education scholars and practitioners. These principles offer a vibrant framework for our retreat and a compass for education leaders as they navigate the challenges of leading with a strong combination of savvy skills and wholehearted presence.
 
Please join us to expand your leadership capacity, to reconnect with the larger purposes of your work, and to gain renewed clarity and inspiration. Visit our website for more details and the registration link.
 
“Often, I feel like I am only surviving in my professional life. It was fantastic to have the time to reflect and think of all the things I do well as a leader and as a person. I am already leading differently as a result of Wild Leadership.”
–Ivonne Orozco, 2018 NM Teacher of the Year

When it comes to financial statements, do you just glance and nod your head in approval? Join us to learn how to actually read financial statements in a friendly and non-judgmental environment!

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what the various reports are saying, how they relate to each other, how to know when something is wrong, and what questions to ask 
  • Feel comfortable reviewing and approving financials in board meetings

Description

Reading financial statements can sometimes be a challenge, even for people who have gone to school to learn how to understand financial statements! For the rest of us, it can be flat out intimidating.  

Join us for a fun class where we “pull back the curtain” and talk about how financial statements are prepared, what they tell you and what they don't, what to look for, and when to ask questions. This class is geared for board members and management, and anyone who wants to dig deeper into the numbers.

Level

Introductory

Audience

Executive Directors, Boards of Directors, or any nonprofit leaders that review financial statements

Presenter

Suzanne Atkinson is the managing partner at ProBooksUSA where she specializes in small business consulting and accounting services. Her clients range from small family enterprises to international corporations, from small philanthropic groups to multi-million dollar, multi-funding source nonprofit entities. She received her bachelor’s degree from UNM and her MBA from Cal Coast University. Suzanne brings humor and fun to the otherwise dry topics of accounting and finance. On the weekends, she plays with hot glass and reads cookbooks.
