Many organizations have very little awareness of the incredible wealth of resources, knowledge, and creativity that already exists within their own teams and communities. Funding is often cited as the number one constraint for an organization to grow or meet its mandate, but it has been proven that even organizations with substantial budgets face challenges with fostering innovation and effectively leading change. We believe that everyone has the resources within them to solve the toughest challenges, though they often have not had the proper environment to recognize their strengths. We support teams in exploring new ideas, identifying resources, strengthening collaboration, and developing strategies through fun and engaging activities that emphasize the creative spirit of each participant.
We believe that youth are not the leaders of tomorrow, they are the leaders of today! Unfortunately, many organizations and communities do not know how to engage youth and exclude them in the decision making process. That’s where we come in. We assist organizations and communities to ensure that youth voices are not only heard, but are strongly valued and respected. Our approach integrates fun, immersive, and proven activities that are designed to reflect a variety of participation styles and promote a relaxed environment for youth to feel empowered and share their experiences, concerns, and solutions to lead change. This work also includes sharing strategies for non-youth to improve engagement and processes to further promote cross generational collaboration.
Values Driven Organizations
Through our work it has become evidently clear that organizations and communities who do not know their true values are often repeatedly stuck addressing surface level issues and challenges that prevent them from making a much greater impact and contribution. We have designed a process of workshops, reflections, and planning exercises that address the root-cause issues and meta-root cause assumptions (values and beliefs) to align with the overall aim and goals of the organization. Clients who have been facilitated through our process report exponential shifts in their organizational culture, more honest and effective communication, and more efficient and resourceful projects and goals. So, wouldn’t you like to know your values?
