Welcome! Fundraising Coach + Management Trainer

Level up your skills at work

Hello, I’m so glad you’re here–I’m Shannon, your fundraising coach and management trainer! Welcome to Monsoon Leadership–your one-stop shop for self-paced online courses, one on one coaching, career transition coaching, and hiring and retention support. You can expect 100% authenticity with a dash of humor.

  • My number one goal is to help you earn more money.
  • My number two goal is to help you be happier in your career.
  • My number three goal is that you never feel alone in your struggles at work.

And let’s be honest, the struggles are very real at nonprofits.

According to Nonprofit Quarterly, “about 30 percent of nonprofit workers are burned out, with an additional 20 percent in danger of burning out,” based on answers from a survey conducted by Opportunity Knocks. If you’re in this 50%…let’s work together and help you find that spark again.

Fundraisers and nonprofit leaders–my brethren–it is a heavy load we carry at work. I’m here to partner with you, support you, and help you overcome workplace obstacles. 

I believe that everything you need to be successful is already inside of you.
