It’s easy to feel stuck, especially when you are trying to make a positive difference in the world. Sometimes you wish there was just some playbook you could follow.
However, your organization has a unique perspective, and the people you serve have unique needs. It doesn’t make sense to just follow someone else’s plan. Defining your strategy can be difficult when you are steeped in so much information. Even if you have a strategy, it can be really hard to communicate it to those who matter most – your team, your partners, and your audience.
You can only make progress if you know what you’re moving toward. Making the path visible greatly increases your chances for success–what you see it what you get. Let me make your conversations visible so that you can learn better together, make better decisions together, and define your purpose together.

To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
