Support for Mission-Driven Organizations & Initiatives
We empower you to 'see the forest through the trees' in several languages.
We believe in:
Getting the Job Done. Often initiatives and projects, even those essential for successful fulfillment of our endeavors and our very purpose, linger in limbo. We identify and create solutions for overcoming roadblocks. Our expert recommendations are enacted to ensure smooth, on-budget, and efficient operations while reinforcing and staying focused on your vision. We will help you reinvigorate and solidify your ideas and make your organization more sustainable over the long-term. We are here to engineer processes which will deliver your goal state.
Fostering Creativity. Sometimes, senior managers are unable to dig deeper into internal process issues and middle managers have difficulty communicating the necessity of detailed process work to senior leaders. As a domino effect, this often has the result that even the most outstanding, motivated, and contributing employees find themselves underappreciated and alienated from the organizational purpose, goals, and core business. Such conditions often hamper employees’ trust, creativity, self-confidence, and—above all—productivity which can lead to a morass of inaction and frustration at many levels of an organization. These specific internal problems can drag even the stable and successful organizations down into deep stagnation. Dealing with similar problems in various organizational settings and in different positions, we’ve learned that these challenges require solutions far beyond emergency staff salary and benefit increases or team-building workshops and exercises. Our independent expert consultants have already proven, in a number of cases, that turnover can be reduced and reverted, productivity and efficiency increased, and organizational spirit and focus reinforced by harnessing the creative power and involvement of all employees through the consistent and transparent implementation of our custom-tailored guidelines for senior management.
Being Excellent. Being average is not enough for carrying out truly great ideas, ideals, and endeavors. You and your colleagues sometimes need to rethink, reconsider, and refashion your organization and your core business in ways that consistently amaze your stakeholders while keeping you inspired and committed to your mission. Especially in the educational, public, and non-profit sectors. How can you become or remain a truly cutting-edge and successful organization? Our internationally-experienced and accomplished, interdisciplinary, erudite, driven (yet friendly), and earnest consultants will create a road map for you to follow on this journey, revisiting implementations to help you avoid falling into the trap of business as usual.
