Initial Engagement

If we’ve never worked with you before, we will:

Listen: Working with the client, we conduct a series of interviews to seek understanding of individual and collective needs, motivations and interests. We develop a list of stakeholders who will care about—truly have a stake in--your final product. Relationship care accelerates and creates the foundation for effective systemic change. We curate opportunities to demonstrate this. Relationships always include the Earth; resiliency and ecosystem regeneration are built into all we do.

Reflect: Our founder uses her extensive multi-sector experience to analyze findings and reflect them back to the client and stakeholders in ways they can hear and use.

Design: We facilitate a structured design process that integrates top-down with bottom-up participation. We guide this process to ensure outcomes that serves all needs—regeneration of relationships, economies, and ecosystems. We use an asset-based approach emphasizing strengths to influence challenges. We design for the development of good social capital among diverse stakeholders.

Execute: We are hands-on, or light-touch with project execution, depending on our clients’ needs.

Subsequent Engagements

Out of our initial engagement may come the knowledge you can do it on your own now. Or not!

Beyond our initial package, therefore, we stand ready to continue working with you in capacities that reveal themselves through the initial engagement. These of course are also custom-designed.
