INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES FOR CHANGEMAKERS
I help move business ideas from idea to reality. I specialize in situations where there is a need to balance profit with a social or environmental benefit. Build a sustainable purpose-driven enterprise to achieve your dream and address the pressing issues of our time. Or just make money.
Kyle Pearce - Founder and Principal think:act consulting.
While technology gets much of the attention these days, real change comes through the way that people relate to each other. I design customized approaches that help you chart a course from where you are to where you want to be.
When I engage clients and stakeholders, I extract deeper meaning from what they say. By asking targeted questions and listening to their thoughts and opinions, I am able to surface the deeper feelings, biases and values that help you chart the most successful course of action.
Analysis and systems thinking.
When projects begin it can feel like stakeholders are at odds with each other. Through good processes and skillful listening, we can always distill a convergent set of values and principles that form the starting point for developing a path forward.
Flexibility and responsiveness.
Systems are dynamic and in business and service industries, a project plan that assumes absolute stability will fail to help clients reach their goals. I pay attention to the shifts in perspective and priorities and constantly revisit the project plan to be successful.
People need to be heard and resistance is usually a sign that a person’s personal or professional goals are challenged. Being an empathetic listener helps me to achieve breakthroughs, find your next superstar and get better (and more enthusiastic) performance from your team.
Whether preparing a discussion document for stakeholder consultation, executive presentation, or a media strategy, I’ve done it. My approach to engaging audiences helps to connect with the people you need to convince.
Kyle is one of the best listeners I have ever worked with. With his questions and openness, he is able to put himself almost directly into the context I am describing and get a truly thorough understanding of what I am looking for. He is prompt, professional, and has a great sense of humour.
