Why We Go Beyond

Experience teaches us that change is not always a clear path.

Institutions, associations and organizations are shaped by their communities, who often have diverse perspectives. This quality is what creates the day-to-day possibilities, but it can also challenge intended change, decision-making and initiatives.

We are here to help unpack that initial conversation. We are here for you on your journey to untangle, envision, and create.

Our Principles

"Many voices can get messy, but without those voices what you create rarely grows."

We honour the many opinions and perspectives.

We work comfortably within the paradox of how can both be possible.

We engage and listen so people feel and are heard in healthy and constructive ways and their hope and fears both shape the final plan or vision.

We believe people need to see both their hopes and their fears represented and spoken about in the principles we derive that guide the work.

"Be grounded in an understanding of the context, of scholarship and of wise practices, while also being practical."

We work with you, walk with you and fine tune with you because you know your context and your organization.

We draw on expertise through collaborators, landscape scans and focused literature reviews, as well as engaging members of your organization and leadership teams.

"The resulting change needs to have a meaningful cohesive vision with a clear plan."

We believe the resulting strategies, processes, and plans should last well after all have left the project with no papering over, and no duct-tape required

We work to identify considerations and principles from across all perspectives because those who look beyond the organization and those who keep track of the details both know key requirements for this initiative to succeed

We need each person involved to see their part in the plan and to feel it makes sense and is viable.
