What We Do
Good leadership is essential to an organization’s ability to make meaningful impact while empowering the people doing and benefiting from the work.
We help organizational leaders set and actualize their visions. We design and facilitate management, executive and team trainings. We help solve complex problems by coaching leaders through relationship development and crisis management. We analyze organizational structures, offer solutions to drive stronger results and design thoughtful approaches to change management. We identify opportunities for growth, engagement and advancement, and advise on the means and needs to get there.
The right strategy—and communication of that strategy—can help people to clearly imagine an organization’s vision and inspire them to join the effort.
We help organizations design compelling strategies with actionable plans and support implementation to maximize impact. We develop organizing and mobilization tactics aimed at increasing organizational power and influence. We help organizations build stronger stakeholder relationships and foster new partnerships.
Powerful communications tell stories and, through them, deepen relationships, build alliances, inspire personal investment and make an organization’s work more possible and more meaningful.
We help organizations articulate their vision by crafting stories and teaching storytelling. We have expertise in digital and written communications, and we understand the importance of clear, compassionate and human-focused messaging. We help organizations develop internal and external communications, including social media campaigns and posts, op-eds and articles, and letters and speeches. We leverage the organizing, political, education, academic and writing experience of our team to design communications for any audience and effect.

Engagement and Outreach
There is nothing more important to an organization’s impact than authentically engaging with and developing an honest understanding of the people it serves in a real and personal way.
We design and facilitate stakeholder and community engagement to understand their opinions, priorities, perspectives and lived experiences to better inform organizational decisions and direction. We organize partner convenings, assemble advisory boards, lead focus groups and conduct workshops that are constructed to listen, learn and share.
