Creativity Innovation & Empowerment
TadZo cultivates creative, innovative, and empowered individuals and groups through inclusive engagement and visual thinking.
We love to work with people who want to make transformative change and meaningfully address issues together.
How we work is a bit different than other consulting firms. We invite everyone to shape solutions for a better future through a broadly inclusive approach. We amplify diverse voices in order to drive to the heart of key issues. We foster inventing and innovating together.
This is not mumbo-jumbo. We help you move quickly from chatter to matter, digging deeply into what is important to you and stakeholders. At the same time, we have fun, yet our playfulness is designed with the purpose to enhance creativity and engagement. The more open and inviting we are, the better the outcomes in all situations.
We help businesses, entrepreneurs, organizations, non-profits, government, and anyone aiming to do meaningful work. TadZo is well-known for our strategy work. It’s dynamic and iterative – a sound approach for navigating these complex times. We build capacity for you with empowered teams, so you can adeptly adjust to changing conditions while staying aligned to your purpose.
If you are seeking to jazz up and energize an event for greater participation and valuable outcomes, we design meetings, focus groups, conferences, planning sessions, retreats, etc. While it will be fun, our goal for you is a more worthwhile and productive event. Our facilitation services involve a combination of Liberating Structures and Visual Facilitation.
We guide you (or your team) through exploration of your situation, context and creating solutions you will want to move forward. Our skills in designing exercises and insightful questions are the value proposition of our coaching. Plus, we coach you to stay accountable to yourself (or team).
We offer courses and workshops on strategy, visual thinking, how to hold better meetings, and much more. It's more than simply a class; you will be able to put your learning into practice immediately transforming how you work.
"At the beginning of the project, my expectations were that I just wanted change. Let me say, that’s happening and so much more evolved from the process. We have been able to engage people that were un-engageable prior to the process. I am very pleased with Allison’s way to bring all different entities together to sing from the same sheet of music."
"I have been through at least ten strategic plans in my career and this was by far the best and most innovative I have ever been involved with. Your firm goes above and beyond the call of duty and your follow-up is very refreshing."
"I feel more empowered than I have in a very long time.
I see a vision, a path forward."
“Allison doesn’t make promises she can’t keep – and she doesn’t lead a community down a path that isn’t truly a viable option."
