BUILDING BRIDGES LEADERSHIP

Creating Shifts in Workplace Culture


What We Do

Employee Offsites and Board Retreats for team building, goal setting, diversity, inclusion, & belonging

“Ian was able to facilitate an amazing day of learning for me and my staff of 65. We left feeling like we better understood each other, and were aligned around common goals and a common purpose.  Definitely the best offsite facilitation we have had!” 
– Mike Salguero, CEO, ButcherBox

Consulting to support group dynamics and organizational goals

“Ian led a team building session at our church’s annual Board retreat. In two hours, he led us through two deceptively simple activities. Through these activities, and Ian’s gentle, skillful debriefing with us, we grew in trust and affection for one another. A few interesting tensions and strengths in our team were also revealed, in an atmosphere that encouraged new understanding and connection around these. We’re grateful for Ian’s facilitation!”
– Steve Watson, Senior Pastor, Reservoir Church

Trainings and Workshops exploring organizational norms and challenges when cultures meet

“The Lego-building exercise helped us to learn a lot about ourselves and each other in a short amount of time. I could see aspects of what I’ve come to know as each person’s approach to working on problems; I also have a new insight into my own approach.” 
– Amanda Bosh, Senior Lecturer, MIT

Online/in-person group dynamics – leading equitable teams in a hybrid world

During my tenure as President of the Harvard Extension Student Association, Ian provided me great wisdom and insight on how to increase engagement in my in-person/online hybrid meetings.”
– Joshua Boyd, former President, Harvard Extension Student Association

Meaningful play for a staff culture of authentic communication and inclusion

“I felt immediately motivated to trust, support, and rely on the other people in my group. I felt the heart of this exercise expanding outward and creating concentric circles within the room. I can now envision concentric circles expanding across every aspect of our school and even across Waldorf schools.” 
– Jen Minotti, Board Member, Waldorf School of Lexington

Facilitator Training to transform your employees’ ability to lead meetings into productive and inclusive experiences which honor all voices

“I was truly blown away by how much I learned about myself through some of the activities Ian facilitated. Ian did a great job of pushing our company to take what we learned and apply it to our everyday work as well. He also was really informal and laid back which meshed well with our company culture.”

Speaking engagements – storytelling to build meaningful engagement in organizational goals

“[Ian] made sure everyone was included and heard. It made for a very insightful and eye-opening day!”
