Much of what we do involves some element of coaching, consulting, and advising: helping teams or leaders walk through messy problems and handle complex, fast-paced situations.
We’re confident that we can provide a knowledgeable sounding board and important guidance in moments where crisis management is key, and we are always ready to follow up with one-on-one support.
We believe most challenges can be prevented through relevant information and support, which is why we’re often asked to lead training sessions for our clients. Some workshops we have developed include: media and public relations for non-profit leaders, legal duties of directors and officers, budgeting and financial planning, work plan design, and the development of a healthy workplace culture.
An example of a project in this category:
You’re the Executive Director of a mid-sized Canadian environmental protection group. You’ve recently received a lot of unexpected media attention related to a campaign opposing a certain pipeline. The problem is that you, and other spokespeople for your organization, don’t seem to have a coherent message. You’ve even contradicted each other a few times in the press.
You contact us to tailor training sessions on media and public relations. Once that process has been a success, we follow up with a meeting where we establish a new media relations strategy that your whole team can commit to. We perform periodic follow ups to monitor your progress, and offer support in the case of crisis or an impending complex press issue.
