Below are some answers to commonly asked questions. If you still have questions, I will be happy to answer them during our introductory 30-minute consult meeting.
I have worked both in the creative world and the consulting world for 30 years.
I have first-hand knowledge of the issues that creative teams face and have been bringing my consulting background to those issues for the past 16 years.
Teams report that they work better together, with less drama, more joy and fun. We usually receive this feedback directly from the team after implementing this work. We also run surveys before and after when we need to assess results in specific areas.
Creative teams are similar to other teams in that everyone benefits from clear communication and a supportive, rich culture. Creative teams thrive even more on that culture, but are often less eager to embrace new structures and processes, so they need the value of those structures and processes demonstrated and proven.
Absolutely yes. While face to face interaction offers the richest form of communication, virtual meetings are easier to schedule and can speed the consulting process.
If you work it, yes. Remember that culture is a living breathing entity, it needs to be cared for and nourished.
