Designing Growth and Change

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
                                       — GEORGE BERNARD SHAW


The thing about hard things. They're hard.  Sometimes the best next step is to get another perspective and view the challenge from another angle.  Leaders come to us for two reasons:


  1. To address an organizational or business challenge.
  2. To help them capitalize on an opportunity.


We are a boutique business and market strategy and group facilitation services company.  We work with entrepreneurs who want rapid and sustainable growth.  We draw on globally-proven research, insights and behavioural science to help you align people, business strategy and culture and your target customers.  Your team knows your business.  We help reframe the challenge and create a roadmap that inspires optimism and confidence.


Contact Kim.  Her consulting approach is practical and based on your unique circumstances.  It begins with a conversation, hopefully over coffee, and a question:  Do you know the change you are looking for or the source of the growth challenge?  Strategy creation that can lead to growth is art and science.  She brings both to the table.

Group Facilitation

It is nearly impossible for leaders to effectively facilitate an important strategic planning meeting, team retreat or offsite AND effectively participate.  This doesn't mean you can't effectively facilitate someone else's important meeting or retreat.  But for your own, your best option is to hire a skilled, independent facilitator who can bring your team's best ideas effectively forward.  


Our aim is to create and inspire the conditions so that your team can work together with shared understanding on clear, defined goals and achievable plans.


Kim MacDonald is a member of the International Association of Facilitators and draws on 13+ years of group facilitation and adult education theory and practice.  She will:  

  • Engage your participants to design the best process for your goals. 
  • Develop an agenda that is rich, relevant and practical.
  • Enable each individual's full engagement.
  • Create the space for your group to do their best work.
  • Build your team's capacity to take the plan and process forward. 
  • Help the group set itself up for the changes new ideas require.
  • Capture actions and decisions AND other important information for future consideration.
  • Ensure the group's investment of time is time well spent.

Consulting for Growth

We believe strategic plans are instruments of growth and change.  We also believe that, in most cases unfairly, they have gotten a bad reputation.  Part of the challenge for business has always been implementation.  


As you develop your strategy, one of your highest value considerations will be the individuals and teams who have a role in execution.  Involving teams in meaningful ways during strategy development is essential to strong plan development. 

 

Research shows that executive leaders only know 4% of what is really happening inside the organization and causing challenges for employees to do their best work. Team managers only know 9%!  The time spent getting to know what is and what will be positively and negatively impacting your ability to implement will be time well spent.  


We can help you build a lean and achievable plan based on a practical assessment and identification of where your highest and best action should be.
