All About Beyond Story
After working in the business arena for over 25 years, Dr. Thyonne Gordon noticed a pattern with leaders and staff.
When fulfilling the mission-based work, organizations thrived. However, when it came to the administration, operations and fundraising to assure the mission-based work was done, they struggled.
On top of that, even when organizations were equipped to handle the day-to-day work, it became hectic and out of flow.
From these observations and working at every level — from mail room and clerical support to management and executive landscapes — Beyond Story was created to enliven individuals and teams to do what they were born to do.
Our work goes “beyond the story” of the mission by integrating the infrastructure, culture and mission to meet a strong and doable vision.
Dr. Gordon felt so strongly about the work of Beyond Story that she charted pilot programs with several small companies over the past 7 years growing business success.
With these successes, a team of professionals were recruited to continue the work exponentially. Beyond Story leads businesses to long term sustainable success.
How We S.T.O.R.Y.
The Beyond Story technique starts with an Organizational Assessment.
This Assessment helps determine the compatibility of Beyond Story for you! If there’s a fit, we’ll be happy to continue with an on-site assessment.
We only work with organizations where we know we can be successful.
This doesn’t mean your organization will not be successful. It only means we take pride in the work we do, and want the best possible outcomes for you.
Once the assessment is complete, on-site interviews are done and the needs are determined, your organization receives a customized plan of action – catered specifically for you and the company’s development.
The Beyond Story team consists of business professionals with over 50 years experience collectively.
Specializing in the Project Management is essential before partnering with Beyond Story. Each team member passes a rigorous test of Administrative and Operational standards, which includes evaluative processes and basic accounting structures.
Team members also participate in a unique Beyond Story training experience in which they learn how to work with our clients in a customized fashion.
Our Beyond Story Fundraising Specialists are part of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and many are Certified Fundraising Professionals. But these distinctions just mean they did their homework.
Before joining the Beyond Story team, each professional must show a proficiency in raising revenues at a $1 million dollar mark and above. You can be sure that the Beyond Story team member assigned to you is well informed and equipped to handle any situation you may have.
How do we know? Well, we’ve taken our own business beyond our story!
