What We Do
Facilitation & Collaboration
We are well-known for masterful group facilitation and result-oriented meetings and convenings. We:
- Bring together people who have different stakes in the same issue.
- Design a clear process for working together toward shared goals.
- Don’t hammer out lowest common denominator compromises. Instead, we identify areas of strong agreement -- and how to act on them.
- Build cohorts for ongoing learning and capacity building
Planning & Implementation
We place a high value on achieving measurable outcomes. We can help you to plan and achieve excellent results by:
- Visualizing how your program works to create social change.
- Strategizing, using analysis-based, visionary, and/or incremental planning models.
- Analyzing how your organization’s programs affect your mission and your money.
- Preparing for partnerships and strategic alliances.
Leadership & Coaching
We understand that change requires leaders who model clarity and confidence. We offer:
- Coaching for Co-Executive Directors, to make shared leadership a strategic advantage and a good management practice.
- Advising for board leaders about how to increase capacity for generative governance.
- Trainings for grassroots boards who are ready to take on new challenges.
