Our workshop and training programs

The most effective way to encourage growth within an organization is to provide executives, leaders, and managers with new tools for their workplace toolbox. Our workshops and training accelerator programs are designed to help individuals learn repeatable frameworks on which they can build future successes.

Using an adult education model in a workshop format, we teach and train individuals how to identify challenges, research solutions, and implement programs that support sustainable innovation and long-term growth.

Each workshop is customized for client needs and is delivered either onsite in a classroom setting or virtually.  You can choose from a current workshop, or we will create a custom workshop or training program to meet your specific needs.

Advancing innovation leadership

We introduce your team to an entrepreneurial-thinking approach that incorporates a systems-based structure to facilitate continuous innovation. 

Rooted in design-thinking principles, we dissect common barriers to innovation within organizations, explore appropriate strategies for overcoming obstacles, and then develop an action plan for ongoing success.

Among other things, participants will learn how to identify biases that prevent change, building blocks for divergent thinking, and leadership skills to enable sustainable innovation within the organization.

Assessing your licensing opportunity

We introduce you and your team to the fundamentals of licensing and trademark protection. We explore the business benefits of licensing, the different ways in which licensing can extend a brand, and the challenges of running a licensing program. 

Next, we work together to examine your brand assets and assess your brand’s strengths and weaknesses, the competitive landscape, and the viability of a successful licensing program. 

Then, we guide you through creating an action plan to get a licensing program off the ground should you choose to take the next step.

Building an effecient organization

We help you evaluate the optimal structure and approach to deliver your organization’s mission.

We teach you how to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your structure and technologies as it relates to achieving your goals. Working together we examine your current operations to uncover opportunities for improvement.

Then, we guide you in creating the next steps to streamline administration and operations, improve efficiencies, reduce costs, and create alignment with your organizational strategy.

Creating a mission connection with new generations

We guide you through the demographic and cultural changes that may affect your organization’s ability to connect with new donors, members, and recipients of services.

Together we examine your audiences, what’s working and what’s not with your current approach to fundraising and member engagement.

Then, we develop and reshape the current messaging and message delivery strategies to align better with your target audiences.

Developing a shared value strategy

We start with an introduction to the concept of a shared value strategy, and then we lay the groundwork for the development of this social impact initiative within your company.

We explore the purpose and impact of a shared value strategy on your organization and identify and consider which unmet societal or environmental needs are aligned best with your business.

Next, we discuss how to implement the strategy across all touchpoints in your value chain, define communications strategies, and determine the best way to measure and report the social impact of the initiative. Then, we guide you through creating an action plan to implement your strategy.

Improving volunteer engagement

Together we examine your current approach to volunteer engagement and support.

We review the demographic and cultural changes that may affect your organization’s ability to connect volunteers in a meaningful and sustainable way.

Then, we develop new messaging and engagement approaches that resonate with volunteers and motivate involvement.

Strategic planning basics

We work with your organization to create a sustainable framework for strategic planning, including evaluating the market, assessing your internal capabilities, determining the needs, values, and expectations of your constituencies, and create an action plan of the viable next steps.
