Search and Selection via Strategic Partnership

Silverleaf has developed a strategic partnership with NL Moore & Associates providing consulting services for the faith-based world specializing in an evidence based approach to leadership transitions such as succession planning, planned and unplanned pastoral resignation, candidate selection, board & staff development, and leadership coaching for pastors and teams. We work nationally with denominational and non-denominational churches, Christian schools and non-profits.  

NL Moore & Associates is the premier provider of an evidence based approach to leadership decisions referred to as OI (organizational intelligence). Organizational intelligence begins with understanding. Understanding where you are, where you want to go and working together to determine the best way to get there.

We help you know that the steps you take are steps in the right direction through an approach that is both quantitative and qualitative.  This approach balances the very best objective insights with the more subjective needs that are expressed through constituents.  Whether succession planning or resignation management, congregational assessment or leadership development, we specialize in using the very best practices, tools and processes available to inform your decision-making and empower you to get it right.
