Consulting

My consulting services foster greater creativity, resilience, courage, and communication in the workplace. I support teams that must consistently create on demand and at a high level of excellence.

Businesses and organizations need to tell good stories, not just about their goods and services, but also about purpose and culture to better communicate their brand, build leadership, and retain talent. Recent research -- from Forbes to Harvard Business Review -- emphasizes the importance of the power of storytelling for team-building, content creation, leadership development, and financial sustainability.

My workshops and experiential sessions are designed to challenge and invigorate creative teams and individuals. Tailored to your specific needs, sessions can be from two hours to a half day in length (or longer), with hands-on exercises and participation to generate new forms of imagination and to expand the storytelling capacity of t team, the company, and its clients. Sessions may focus on:

  • Creativity resilience to recharge our imagination and inventiveness,
  • Breakthrough thinking to spark imagination and innovation,
  • Seeing and re-envisioning the stories we're living and bringing to the workplace,
  • Encouraging self-care and a sense of community, and
  • Mentoring the creative in ourselves and others.

My life-long practice of writing and creating for multiple media -- coupled with decades of teaching and facilitating at universities, in communities, and for businesses and organizations -- has deepened my understanding of creativity resilience, the courage to create in new ways, and the nuances of effective communication.

I hope for the chance to talk with you about how this group experience can impact your company or organization. Please contact me here to find out more.
