How we work
We're small and nimble, so it depends on your goals and budget. It's ideal to start with strategy: a Messaging Audit to get a big picture of your organization's strengths, people talent and overlooked opportunities. It's priced at a flat rate, depending on whether your entity (business or social profit), and size.
We'll also work with staff to bring more inclusive perspectives to copy writing, (messaging, PR, reports, etc.) or grant writing. Writing is priced by the hour or project.
We incorporate these methodologies into our process:
- Cultural Detective® - a global communication tool that helps people, teams and organizations work more effectively
- Adaptive Leadership - a change management model designed to improve communication, collaboration and conflict resolution
- Developmental Communities - Search Institute's Developmental Assets (40 protective factors for youth success and family engagement), applied to communities
Zena Associates are added as needed when a project requires deeper cultural or linguistic expertise.
Lee is an experienced speaker. Ask about our Cultural Training, to kick start conversations and invite new perspectives about communication styles. See our list of clients.
Communication is common sense, and common sense is cultural.
