Our Core Perspective & Process

Appreciative Inquiry is the core of all our work, because it gives us the avenue to connect strengths with collective strengths, and aspirations with greatest aspirations. We effectively design Appreciative Inquiry processes in any client engagement, for any size organization, and in any of the "Services" we offer, from large multi-day summits to core group inquiries.


Philanthropic Quest informs our perspective & process for our work with organizations of social good, because it provides the insight and tools especially applicable to the passion and commitment we encounter in the nonprofit sector. Visit Jim Lord's What Kind of World Do You Want? to learn more.

Future Search is a large group facilitation methodology we employ for off-sites, retreats and summits, because it effectively engages diverse populations in creating and planning vibrant futures.

Open Space Technology is an approach we specialize in, when self-organization around a specific theme is what's called for to move groups forward.

World Cafe is a process we've had tremendous success with when a group wants to foster dialogue on issues of deep importance.

Technology of Participation is a small to medium group facilitation method we employ for various contexts where consensual visioning, planning and implementation are the preferred results.

{ The Course: Reaching the Optimal Future }

Visioning

A clear, collective and provocative vision will compel an organization towards greatness, by channeling its hopes and dreams into the work environment. We can help you with a Visioning process that brings out the best in your system. This can also be integrated into another service such as Strategic Planning.

Strategic Planning

Sometimes organizations get so focused on the day-to-day activities, that they forget to look up at the long-term picture to see where they're going (or don't see the forest for the trees, some say). We can help with an engaging, participatory process that will position you for your best steps forward.

Training & Skills Building

With "change" being one of the few guarantees in modern society, you know that team members must be equipped with many skills and abilities. We can help you with the design and facilitation of interactive learning experiences that develop team skills in a number of areas, including project management, federal and state grant management, program evaluation, or board governance.

Process Facilitation

Without clear support, the "right" decisions quickly become the worst decisions. Moving your team towards the best decision requires broad engagement and support from the team and stakeholders. We can help you by designing and facilitating a democratic, community-based, engaging process that honors your stakeholders while informing your team's next big decisions.
