We help your team collaborate to solve problems, creatively and strategically.
We help teams of 2 to 150+ collaborate to solve problems, creatively. We facilitate visual, hands-on, and strategic workshops that energize and motivate (in-person or digital) rooms of thinkers and doers to solve the most challenging of problems. We guide people out of traditional thinking ruts and give them permission to curiously play, strategize, and solve.
Examples include: leadership/board retreats, mission/vision/values revamp, strategic planning, community engagement and co-design, data synthesis and activation, retrospectives, collaboration agreements, intentional team-building and retreats, Nonprofit Lifecycles Assessment, FourSight Mindset Reveal workshop series (see more in Skill-Building Sessions, below)

Find clarity in the face of complexity. We can turn your meetings, recordings, conceptual ideas, and data into a comprehensive visual summary or illustration. We can also draw live during a “visual consulting” meeting, allowing you and your colleagues to “see” how the conversation or story unfolds as we process it together. Our playful, yet elegant, visuals boost retention, improve audience engagement, and encourage better conversations.
Examples include: strategic roadmaps, organization/program maps, infographics & models, journey maps, focus group summaries, user research insights, process diagrams, visual consulting, strategic planning summaries, goals, implementation plans
