Wayfinding organizations do innovation work – work that goes beyond.

Whether designing the “mall of the future” or building a school model that radically reconceptualizes what public education could look like, wayfinding organizations understand that diverse wisdom is essential to fostering a culture of creativity and innovation.

Wayfinding organizations seeking to stand out in the marketplace realize that the demographics of this country and this world will continue to shift as the years go on.

They know that without conscious efforts to invest in and unleash the power of diversity and inclusion, they will miss out on creative opportunities.

They recognize that setting up opportunities for collaboration and enhancing the diversity of their workforce alone is not enough if the environments that that collaboration is happening in don’t honor or create space for people to show up in their wholeness and offer their wisdom. Contained in that wisdom could be the key insight that helps them create a product, a process, or an outcome that’s truly revolutionary.

To this end, wayfinding organizations invest in culture development as well as demographic diversification. They proactively seek to equip their leaders and teams with the tools and orientations that they need to draw forth and support the wisdom of all their employees.

Wayfinding organizations seek to develop cultures and conditions that:

  • Encourage learning and growth.
  • Promote equity aligned dialogue and action.
  • Value and support the integration of outcomes, people, and processes.
  • Honor the wisdom of diverse experiences.
  • Foster creativity, innovation, and experimentation among all team members.

And that’s where I come in…

I help wayfinding organizations build cultures of creativity and innovation by designing and facilitating hands on leadership experiences for teams and by coaching culture leaders – executives, senior leaders and boards.

I also strategize with organizations seeking to hold and honor the wisdom and genius of the people they employ, while positioning them to move towards tangible outcomes by helping them harness the creative power of diversity and inclusion – not with a single workshop or a mission statement but through policies, practices and experiences that weave it into the very fabric of their corporate culture.

Interested in working with me to foster creativity, innovation and inclusion in your wayfinding organization?

Some wayfinding organizations I currently work with include…

Alice is one of the most transformational leaders you will ever meet – she has helped me become a much more effective leader and a better person. Her ability to see what is needed for both individual and organizational transformative change and to make action plans to get there is unparalleled. She helped the team at Mindful Life Project take our organization to the next level culturally and practically at a crucial moment in our growth cycle. I highly recommend her for any organization, company, or individual in need of transformative change!
JG Larochette
Executive Director / Mindful Life Project
A few hours into meeting Alice at a work event, I knew that she radiated intelligence, energy, creativity and empathy. I also knew that I wanted to get to know her more. In the three years since we met, I’ve benefited greatly from these and others of Alice’s gifts. She has supported me when I struggled, pushed me when I needed it, expanded the way I think about the world, and connected me to tools and relationships I draw upon daily to navigate my work and my life. I’ve felt so fortunate to have her as a partner in learning and change. This is why when other dreamers and doers who I trust are looking for a coach or a skilled and thoughtful facilitation partner, I immediately begin telling them why they need to talk to Alice.

Consultant / Optimistic Anthropology
My work with Alice has truly been a gift. She has a unique capacity to both affirm and challenge in equal measure. Whether through an insightful question, provocative exercise, or just earnest ear, she is able to reveal new dimensions of your values, holdbacks, dreams. Through peeling back the layers, she helps you stand more squarely as the person and leader that you authentically want to be. Alice is a stunning coach, masterful facilitator, creative designer of learning experiences. You won't regret your time with her. 
Rob Strain
Partner / Transcend Education
Alice brings a rare combination of powerful intuition about what each individual and the group needs at each moment in time, along with an incredible (and ever-expanding) set of strategic frameworks to be able to move those individuals/groups forward. She led my team on a series of workshops over the course of a year that gave each of us the language and tools to develop much stronger awareness of self and others, and that were crucial in building a deep level of trust and understanding across the entire team. During the course of her work with us, our team culture strengthened notably – evidenced by a year-over-year spike in our team’s Great Places to Worksurvey results. Thanks to Alice’s work, our team was able to build a culture where our whole selves were known, seen and valued – and, equally as important, there was a clear connection between fostering this strong culture and delivering on strong team outcomes.
