WHAT WE DO

Building environments where adults thrive so that they can do their best work for students demands a thoughtful and multi-pronged approach.

OUR CLIENT SUPPORTS TAKE THREE DIFFERENT SHAPES:


These varying shapes of support intersect in all of the work that we do. Whatever service we are providing: talent-systems advising, executive search, or coaching, our holistic approach will support you, your team, and organization to do your best work for students, and the value we place on diversity, inclusion, and equity will show up in our conversations, strategies, and ultimate impact.

TALENT ADVISING

Work we do includes: vision-setting and multi-year planning for talent and diversity, equity and inclusion; culture and change management; recruitment strategy, performance development, career pathway design and succession planning; compensation and total rewards strategy.

We take time to understand our clients’ context through data collected via our proprietary, proven diagnostic surveys and through intentional conversations with your staff to understand their lived experiences.

Our clients benefit from our background in change management methodology and our first-hand experiences leading change in organizations.

The value we place on diversity, inclusion and equity will show up in our conversations, strategies, and ultimate impact.

LEARNING COMMUNITIES

Some of our best work is borne out of shared learning and shared commitment to action. We bring together cohorts of leaders from four to ten organizations to tackle their biggest talent and culture-related challenges.

  • Leaders attend our Talent-Ready Institute to develop strategic, multi-year plans for talent in their organization. Cohort members have dedicated time to think strategically about talent through a guided planning process and they learn from our team and their peers throughout the institute. The Talent-Ready Institute occurs over six months with monthly, in-person meetings.
  • Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Accelerator cohort takes a similar approach, supporting leaders as they develop strategic DEI plans. Cohort members benefit for our facilitators’ perspectives and they also build connections with and learn from peers.
