We can help you manage executive transition.
For both for- and non-profit organizations, the pace and magnitude of change are constantly rising, so it is no surprise that senior-executive transitions are increasingly common: CEO turnover rates have shot up from 11.6% in 2010 to 16.6% in 2015. Since 69% of new CEOs reshuffle their management teams within the first two years, transitions then cascade through the senior ranks.
Executive transitions are typically high-stakes, high-tension events: when asked to rank life’s challenges in order of difficulty, the top one is “making a transition at work”—ahead of bereavement, divorce, and health issues.
The consequences can be dire when leadership changes lead to shifts in organizational direction. In times of transition, 212 Catalysts can be your “constant,” maintaining focus on your long-term, high-level strategy while assisting to uphold the details and processes that keep operations moving.

For 25 years, 212 Catalysts founder and CEO, BiNi Coleman, has aided a long list of organizations – large and small – through processes of systems improvement, achieving measurable impact, and catalytic growth. She has also advised countless individuals in their journeys toward personal growth.
If you have a goal in mind but don’t know where to start – or need to get “unstuck” – we can help. We’re about action, so we can combine your vision with our extensive experience and competencies to catapult you through a streamlined strategic planning process that won’t take a year to complete. Or, if you just need direct assistance to weather transition or achieve a specific objective, we can provide operational or strategic assistance until you stabilize leadership or reach your goals.
Because we have extensive specialization in the non-profit sphere, we can also make recommendations and connections to charitable organizations for businesses looking to meet their philanthropic or community investment goals.

In working with Mrs. Coleman and her team, over the past 13 years, I have much respect for the expertise they have demonstrated in the following areas: Operational & Business Management, Organizational Strategy & Leadership, Financial & Data Systems/Management, Development and Communication. She led strategy and development efforts to move our nonprofit from an annual budget of around $300K to over $1.2M. Beyond just technical skills, one of the greatest attributes Mrs. Coleman and her team brings to the table is their character: integrity, honesty, dependability, commitment to helping underserved communities, and their willingness to state their position and challenge inequities.
