Large Scale Conversations

Imagine a town hall with thousands of people, where everybody has their moment at the mic and leaders are able to hear everyone's views. Impossible?

We specialize in large scale conversations like these. By crafting rounds of conversation that begin at a macro level and progress to conclusions over time—and using a combination of technology, facilitated dialog, and in-depth analysis of input—we create virtual town halls at any scale.

Organizational Identity

For leaders who believe their people are their top asset, highly engaged employees are a must. And identity is the number one factor in engagement.

An employee's sense of who they are in relation to what the organization stands for informs how well they connect and align. Our identity discovery programs help leaders identify the particular set of shared values essential to creating value, then apply those values in every corner of an organization.

LEADERSHIP TEAM RETREATS

Investing in a leadership team's capacity can be rewarding, but also difficult to work into packed schedules. Making the most of these occasions is crucial.

Our retreats blend professional discovery with team development to help each person engage fully with an organization's purpose. Retreats are hosted at distinctive, memorable locations, and feature thought provoking hands-on activities, custom designed for the unique needs of each group.
