We are problem-solvers, often called into a project to fix relationships damaged by company action that erodes trust. We use a variety of tested methods and techniques developed by company-community impact practitioners.
We are sensitive to client needs, active and take initiative. We create change within client organizations and build capacity so they can undertake our work on their own. At that point, we’re out of a job, which means we’ve done what we set out to do for you.
