emBOLDen Alliances is a global nonprofit whose mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable communities through collaborative partnerships that emBOLDen the quality and impact of health and humanitarian services.  We specialize in understanding capacities within specific contexts and customizing our guidance. Throughout each partnership we listen, build, adapt, strengthen, and then step back. Consequently, our partners are better able to design programs and utilize and track resources as well as monitor, evaluate, and measure outcomes – not just outputs – toward positive durable impact.

Steve Werner has more than 25 years of experience in nonprofit management and consulting with local, national international nonprofit organizations helping them to build stronger programs, fundraising plans, marketing, recruiting volunteer leaders, developing board and staff leadership and long-term strategic planning.

In our interconnected world, we interact with people from different cultures on a daily basis. Assumptions are made interpreting comments, reactions and behaviors. The result is often miscommunication because of a culture difference. These miscommunications can be extremely costly to organizations and relationships. Real World Solutions provides practical training and coaching in intercultural awareness and competence for professionals and organizations in business, health care, education, and community services.
