As an organization, your purpose is clear.* Now it’s time for your stakeholders to find their place in bringing your mission and vision to life.
Whether we’re developing a strategic plan, business plan, operational plan, or fundraising plan, people are at the center of our strategy work. Our approach artfully integrates diverse perspectives to ensure a wide variety of stakeholders contribute meaningfully to the process and embrace your new priorities. And to ensure the plan gets implemented (rather than gathering dust on a shelf), we deliver a focused set of core strategies that are directly connected to action.
As a result, the people who drive your purpose are motivated to move forward in the same direction, and understand how their day-to-day helps achieve your intended results — maximizing your efficiency and impact.
*Or, maybe it’s not. We’d love to help you develop or refocus your mission and vision.
At Insignia Partners, we truly believe that a small group of people can change the world for the better. That’s why we love helping mission-driven organizations realize the potential of their most important investment: their investment in people.
Our leadership work helps new, emerging, and seasoned leaders reach their potential as a catalyst for their organization’s overall impact. We coach leaders one-on-one and in small-group settings to help them identify their leadership style, strengthen their skills, address blind spots, and improve relationships with direct reports, peers, and their own managers. As a result, leaders transform their ability to build, grow, and develop high-performing teams.
With plenty of cross-over with our leadership work, our support for teams encompasses every aspect of development. Facilitated in fun and engaging ways that also challenge teams to explore deeply, our team-development work helps colleagues understand and appreciate differences, align around shared goals, work together more efficiently, and celebrate more wins.
Insignia Partners guides leaders and teams through the process of cultivating an intentional organizational culture — one that has a profound influence on the decisions, behaviors, and interactions that drive your team’s daily accomplishments. As a result, teams reduce the daily conflicts and confusion that arise when values and desired behaviors are unclear, and move forward in better sync toward achieving their shared goals.
Leaders are a step ahead when they realize that their teams aren’t made up solely of employees. Your organization’s ability to drive change depends upon board and committee members, volunteers, advisors, community members, and many other stakeholders. Insignia Partners is adept at facilitating stakeholder-engagement and public processes, from complex city-wide change initiatives to focus groups.
Most recently, we’re proud to have been chosen to lead two critically important processes for the City of Denver, Colo.: helping the city lead the nation in its work on climate change as well as in composting and recycling. These processes include co-facilitating a richly diverse task force charged with developing mayoral recommendations, as well as a wide array of public-engagement processes including affinity groups, focus groups, and community meetings.
Our deep experience in the education, non-profit, and public sectors positions Insignia Partners to hit the ground running — preparing for the stakeholder dynamics that are unique to these processes, masterfully designing facilitation and engagement approaches, and responding quickly and effectively to questions, concerns, and issues as they arise.
