Changemaker Strategies
Coaching leaders. Strengthening teams.


Bolder Visions, Stronger Work


With over 25 years of expertise in vision setting and team building, we design and deliver retreats and workshops to help you navigate organizational change and growth. We enjoy motivating teams - staff teams, board teams, board and staff teams - to take their work to the next level, creating operating plans that serve you and your purpose and having fun while we "play" and win.


Tuti B. Scott and team will work with you to map your values and approach, create and refine your theory of change, craft strategic agendas, and build case statements. We love to sequence ideas and support teams so that you and your organization thrive and your work flourishes. 


Tuti B. Scott offers one-on-one executive coaching to high-achieving women leaders. Perhaps you need a catalyst to support you with some imagination, help you harness your inner strengths, and give you some new tools and practices to up your leadership game. Based on years of experience coaching leaders and helping people own their power and leverage it to achieve their goals, Tuti has developed an approach to coaching that is energizing and effective. 



We offer customized services to established and budding philanthropists and anyone who wants to work more courageously, creatively, and effectively with their resources. Tuti B. Scott offers consulting to help you understand your the landscape of gender lens philanthropy and investing and take action aligned with your unique values and goals.


Organizations that aim to make a positive impact need a culturally competent practice of equity and justice. This requires new ideas, new language and tools, and yes, practice! Gwendolyn VanSant will partner with you to design conversations, gatherings, and trainings to address cross-cultural diversity issues with courage, care, respect, authenticity, grace, and joy. Led by VanSant, our team integrates best practices in inclusion, diversity leadership, and embodied positive psychology.


"Digital strategy" is not the same thing as effective knowledge sharing or persuasive storytelling. What is your unique point of view? Are you telling your story clearly and bravely? Are you making your work visible to those who need to see it? Led by Lex Schroeder, our team offers strategic communications consulting, knowledge capture services, and editorial development and support to bring your work to life.
