Our most compelling argument for doing the work that we do is this:
The world, which includes our communities and our companies,
our departments and our teams and even our individual selves,
are so much more successful when there is
That’s it! That is our firm belief.
We believe strongly that only when we there is complete UNDERSTANDING about the challenges that we face as an indivdual, a team, an organization or a community, known as an organization's Impact Ecosystem, can we then create and implement S.M.A.R.T. SOLUTIONS that will help to create the most successful outcomes in response to those challenges. Understanding is the foundation of our ability to navigate the spaces around us and should inform and guide all of our decision-making. It helps us solve problems; become more resilient professionals; build stronger more effective teams; create
better relationships; and informs the work we do and why and how we do it.
With a focused effort on all four categories of an organization’s Impact Ecosystem (the INDIVIDUAL, the TEAM, the ORGNAIZATION and the COMMUNITY) and where Understanding may be the most needed but is often the least present, we provide the necessary S.M.A.R.T. Solutions to create more successful outcomes for you and your community.
With more than 25 years of successfully supporting, motivating, inspiring, challenging, and guiding others on their own professional and organizational journeys, 16 Point Compass Consulting is sure to not only help you find what you need but more importantly, what you are striving for.
Now we know the work towards Understanding and responding with S.M.A.R.T. Solutions is never easy. It takes more than just sheer determination or a desire to make positive change happen. Real, meaningful and substantive change in an organization's trajectory is a heavy lift that requires the courage of leaders to recognize the current challenges or acknowledge those that lay ahead and commit to doing something about it.
Equally, it requires staff and communities alike to open themselves up enough to share their truth, confident in the knowledge that their truth has value in creating positive change for themselves and their community.
