Strategic Planning

Planning is a critical element of the success of any organization, yet few entities devote adequate time and attention to this visioning process. With our intimate understanding of the architecture profession and direct knowledge of its supporting structures, we guide design firms and small non-profits through the full strategic planning process, creating a successful document for them and offering implementation approaches for their future benefit.

Meeting Facilitation

Quite frequently, entities find themselves in need of an ‘extra hand’ (or an objective voice) to prepare for and execute a critical meeting or retreat. With expertise gained during a lengthy tenure on the AIA national staff, coupled with executive directorships for other organizations, we provide support and assistance to ensure a session’s success. This includes the key aspects of agenda development, moderation/facilitation, and consensus building.

Executive Searches

The search and placement of a chief executive (or C-level leader) represent a key moment in any organization’s history … the opportunity for operational, strategic, and cultural changes that advance the firm or entity to the next level of client and constituent service and support. Through a carefully orchestrated search, screening, and selection process, we place the best possible professional to lead and manage a particular not-for-profit or design firm.


What Others Say

“I can honestly say with no exaggeration that the retreat you led for us was the best and most productive we have ever done.  Thank you so much!”
