“your work is like therapy for organizations”

CEO of a Digital Marketing Agency, New York, NY 

 
 

The building blocks of
our process:

 

Listen: deep-dive discovery

Good work begins with deep listening and full transparency. We acknowledge that these conversations can be difficult — so we provide mechanisms and hold space for vulnerability. The process we co-create is respectful, generative, and clear. We listen to you, your stakeholders, competitors, partners. We listen to what is said and listen for what is not.

 

Strategize: Building Teams, Messaging, And capacities

At this phase, the hidden becomes visible and strategy moves to the fore. We pivot from internal ideation, dreaming and planning to putting a plan into motion with your team, making all necessary internal adjustments, decisions, and restructuring to execute the next phase.

define & Craft: Process MapPing And Building Structures

A plan without a vision is hard to imagine, and harder still to get excited about enacting. As we define, refine and plot the course for your project, we make sure to infuse the process with equity, assessment, and a little bit of magic. Once the project is defined, we plot the course, craft our collaborative approach, and build practices, structures, and systems that serve the various tasks at hand.

 

Implement: Move Plans And Structures into Practice

You’ve done the deep work, learning, and planning. Now it’s time to hit the road. Your [public] journey starts here. We are with you for as long as you need us, gently stepping further away as you fly forward. Success for us is working ourselves out of a job - as you take the reins completely and throw us a peace sign.
