Success Stories

Success Story: College

bcOur team has been working with Broward College for a number of years in change management—from strategic planning, to team building, to crafting fundraising strategy. One of our most intensive engagements was partnering with Nancy Botero, the Vice President of Advancement, to transform her team’s focus to donor-centered major gifts. Most inspiring to us is Nancy’s clear vision and her depth of commitment to the process.

We approach our clients with an attitude of discovery—what are their strengths, competencies, hopes, and aspirations—and how can we help them achieve their aspirations through sound practices that are appropriate to their culture. We take it upon ourselves to own their challenges and promise to work with clients to identify solutions and strategies that lead to success.

The core values of James Mueller & Associates are: build, perform, succeed. That is our commitment to ourselves and our clients.

We absolutely love working with Jim Mueller and his team. In terms of nonprofit consulting firms, James Mueller & Associates is at the top of the list. They took the collective energy and talent of our team and helped us get focused on performance. They guided us through times of tough decision making to help us create a culture that has discipline and a cadence of accountability to get the right things done in the right way. Jim is an expert in organization and change management. He worked with our team to transition from events and activities to donor-centered engagement strategies that have dramatically transformed our fundraising success.

Jim brought the tools we needed to not only help us to see our blind spots, but to recognize our strengths and capitalize on them. The Hartman Value Profile is a very valuable tool in this regard.”
