Learning to make a difference
Develop the capabilities in your organization to get better at learning to make a difference
Our services are designed to help you develop the knowledge, skills, and competence to get better a making a difference – to you, your program, your organization, or the world.
These services can take place online, in person, or a mix of the two.
Our approach is one of working with you to harness the energy and connect the dots within your project or organization. What do people already know? What’s getting in the way of putting that to work? What is enabling it? What else do you need to make a difference? How to cultivate a sense of agency in the service of making that difference?
Experienced & curious
We have been developing this field for over 30 years. We offer our knowledge and experience in the service of a collaborative learning partnership, continuously informed by what we learn together.
Innovative & pragmatic
While we are pragmatic, realistic, and reflective about what will work and how to achieve your objectives, we invite you to open up possibilities, push the envelope and explore the cutting edge.
Our work takes us across languages, world-views, sectors, and interests. We enter every context with a fresh mind and imaginative ways to address issues, whether they are contentious or reflect broad agreement.
A learning ethic
We dream that a learning ethic will be embedded in our expectations of what it means to be a responsible citizen – empowered to create social learning spaces, broker new types of conversations across boundaries, and get better at making a difference.
How do we start working with you?
2. Sign up
If it can be served by an Online consultancy, simply select what you want from this page. We will get back to you with our online schedule so that you can choose a time that works.
3. Contact us
Send us an email outlining what you are interested in or would like to know more about. Don’t worry if it falls within our scope or not. We’ll get back and let you know. If we have enough information, we can send you our fee schedule or a quote right away.
4. A conversation
If we need to go beyond email, we’ll set up a time to talk to you in more depth about what you are looking for or trying to achieve. Based on this conversation we can write a brief proposal and budget.
5. Start the work
Once we have agreed on the proposal and budget, we can get started. We’ll set up at least one further conversation to prepare for the work or to start talking to a wider group of people involved in your project.
6. Working together
Depending on the length of the work, we will have regular check-in times with you or your team and a shared online space where we stay on the same page. Our design, planning, and implementation is often better employed iteratively, but we understand the need for milestones and outputs as needed.
7. Closing out
After some work together we invite you to connect with us around 6 months later to let us know how things have gone. We also invite you to keep in touch via other means, whether it is email, twitter (HANDLE), our blog (LINK), or newsletter (LINK).
