Consulting Services

Freeman Philanthropic Services, LLC (FPS) is a full-service firm specializing in strategic organizational assessment, comprehensive recruitment, and a range of planning, management, fundraising and training consulting services. We adapt our comprehensive services to strategically meet the needs of our clients.

Aligning Strategy to Resources

When preparing to launch an executive recruitment, one of the most critical components is a clear organizational vision. Strategic role refinement and building consensus among stakeholders has a direct and significant impact on the success and speed of the recruitment. Together, this unified vision and well-defined role designation deepen stakeholder involvement and commitment to the hire, which ultimately poises the selected candidate for success.

We conduct strategic stakeholder interviews and consultative conversations that guide and shape the visionary concept into a concrete scope of work, including the position's specifications and expectations. In addition to these confidential conversations, we review documentation related to the current organizational paradigm, including strategic plans, financial reports, organizational charts, and job descriptions. Through these stakeholder interviews and culture and goal assessment, together with our client we refine and clearly articulate the paradigm for the role and further align the strategy to resources.

Building upon the depth and breadth of our organizational expertise and our established record of successful engagement, support, and partnerships with stakeholders, we help to further build consensus for the position and create a transparent understanding of its responsibilities and goals. The goal of this organizational assessment is to build a clear vision of the role and the ideal candidate. Based upon this vision of success, we tailor the search structure to best meet our client's needs, goals, and timeframe.
