Any expedition begins with an invitation.
It's the entrance, the opportunity to step across the threshold into something new that sets the stage for everything to follow.
In the design work I do, I want to provide that invitation and the pathway of experiences that can help you shape a new story for your organization.
Changing how organizations function is a challenge. Ultimately, the invitation, and the process that follows, should enable compelling shifts that lead to the creation of a new organizational mindset.
In the engagements I design, I seek to support you in creating deep organizational change by helping you create those shifts. That takes time and effort of course, and is predicated on an inclusive process that supports and engages, pushes when necessary, and challenges people to think and act beyond the constraints of their current conditions and culture. Creating a new organizational mindset means creating a new lens and worldview that is broader and sees differently, crafting a language capable of supporting that capacity, and growing a membership that possesses the skills and dispositions that support an ever-evolving capacity to grow and improve in a world that absolutely demands it.
How we write that story together is what I am interested in. How we create the conditions for making a difference is the challenge. How we do this together is the opportunity ahead.
