Your Crescendo Proposal to redefinED Atlanta Strategic Plan


Purpose is a powerful accelerator for articulating visions, outcomes and priorities in way that mobilizes stakeholders to the ‘why’ of their work. It also substantially enables building high performing boards and leadership excellence through clarity of work, vision and the change mandate. With focused intent, we work to harness that power to create engaging, personally vested and mission impactful facilitated engagements. We approach facilitation as an opportunity to create immersive experiences that embolden the purpose of the organization. We design experiences with intent and a focus on engagement. Below are highlights from recent engagements we’ve facilitated that illustrate these objectives in the facilitated experience we designed.

The experiences highlighted below are of Your Crescendo or Education First engagements on which the team we’ve proposed for redefinED’s engagement.

Annie E. Casey Foundation Atlanta Civic Site Vision 2020 Strategic Articulation

Currently developing the strategic articulation site for the Atlanta Civic Site that will set the stage for the foundation’s investment strategies in the City of Atlanta. Additionally, we provide leadership coaching for the Atlanta Civic Site Director through Finding Your Forte. Designed and facilitated a meeting with key stakeholders to support the development of a two-generation focused data strategy. The post- meeting deliverable included a strategic articulation map to visually depict delivery of efficient family-centered programs and services that are informed by a proficient approach to data collection, sharing and understanding. Developed a toolkit to help the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Family Centered Community Change sites develop a clear articulation of key outcomes (The Why) that align with the needs of children and the appropriate strategies and services (The How) required to achieve those outcomes.
