To build the capacity of organizations and individuals to work in more collaborative and equitable ways.
WHY "INTEGRATIVE INQUIRY?"
The field of development consulting is crowded, and it can be hard to tell what exact services are provided. HR development consultants offer a myriad of strategies and frameworks claiming to "optimize organization efficiency" and "support managerial growth." We want to change the dialogue on what development looks like. What makes our consultation unique is that it approaches projects from a framework of integrative inquiry.
Our work is integrative in that it borrows from a variety of techniques and theories and that it believes true effective programs and curriculum are co-constructed with all stakeholders involved. That means you shape the work. The key to our process is that it is equitable and collaborative in nature. Our aim is to foster an organizational culture that encourages individuals in any role to lead from the top, middle, or bottom of a management structure.
It is also based in inquiry, in the hopeful space of continual progress. Knowing that no organization, project, or team is ever "complete" or "perfect", our approach maintains a fierce commitment to continued learning and growth. This isn't a "one and done" model, with one-off trainings and mandatory checklists that employees must go through. We focus on capacity building and agency, so that organizations take on these principles and continue to transform and evolve the way they work together long after we part ways.
Our HR Development Framework is based on decades of research in the behavioral and social sciences. As we articulate in our white paper on the subject, we identify 5 characteristics of optimal organizational culture:
All of the curricula and strategic support we provide for organizations directly address one or more of these characteristics.
