Thought Partnership

combination of brainstorming, challenging assumptions and beliefs, and the drawing out of spaghetti-scattered thought patterns and re-arranging them into something that I can more clearly visualize and act upon…” ~ Greg

Level up!

Over and over again in my journeys, people keep saying how thought partnership provides so much value. Are you missing out?

Are you giving yourself the time to move to the next level in your thinking? Or do you get trapped in the day to day of design, manage, or measure.

Thinking into how and why you do what you do and how you might do it differently gives you the opportunity to level up. Game on. \o/

Invent your future. Create it. Thoughtfully.

You want a thought partner who is deeply engaged with the edge on many fronts, so you can think through social behavior, cultural evolution, emergent patterns, and practical application of your ideas.

Who is that for you?

Sure, sometimes you need to think by yourself. Make time for your own reflections.

Yes. And, sometimes you need an insightful,  edge-riding, cross-pollinating thinking partner to help you expand possibilities. Discover new realms. Uncover new strategies.

Service is provided on retainer and highly customized to the partnership.

“…I can say without hesitation that my work with [Jean] has enabled me to break through or navigate around a range of mental roadblocks. It has involved a combination of brainstorming, challenging assumptions and beliefs, and the drawing out of spaghetti-scattered thought patterns and re-arranging them into something that I can more clearly visualize and act upon…”

Greg Murray, General Manager, Cleanstar Ventures

My goal was focus.  Jean showed me that I am not unfocused like I thought I was; my work and thinking habits and some of my responsibilities did not fit my focus.  She coached and supported some important re-wiring around these things. She taught me that vulnerability and invulnerability are an infinity loop you have to balance to survive the ride of transformation and the pressures of business. She pushes on weaknesses, which I appreciate. We laugh a great deal and share information which I appreciate.

Given that I lead a small but growing business, Jean taught me important principles for remaining grounded and gave me practical help in ferreting out and changing unhealthy relationship and belief patterns by respectfully calling BS on me if needed, sharing experiences and observations, remaining on the radar, reminding me of my goals, making connections.  The regular coaching was a helpful disruption – necessary to transformational learning.  Jean also has the business acumen and experience to advise across a spectrum of topics and situations relevant to ODScore®.

My business has entered the new year with an evolutionary plan, new funding, stronger partnerships with clients, and a great team and talent network.  I’d say that’s progress!
