Meet our Facilitation Team:
Our Young Adult Facilitation Team:
The team partnered with us at Baptist Health to launch Listening Sessions for staff. The sessions gave staff a safe place to share feelings and perceptions around the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The sessions were well facilitated and kept conversations productive and on track. Once sessions were complete, the team prepared high-level takeaways for the HR departments to use in strategic planning sessions around diversity, equity, and inclusion. The facilitation team was a valuable partner in discovering our current state and directions needed to grow and evolve.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with this team to design a tool specific to our mission. They helped us design and develop Education Conversation Cards to use in our parent and community settings. The connections and relationships they have with families and school staff set the perfect foundation for rich focus group discussions and development of questions. We are very excited about these high-quality and user-friendly cards. Thank you LaDonna and team for your hard work and patience to get the exact product we were hoping for! 5 stars for connections, discovery and development!

We have struggled with retaining first year RN’s.Our turnover rate was steadily increasing and exit surveys weren’t giving us much to go on. We needed a better way to actively engage with new RNs before they left the organization or even worse, left nursing altogether. Working with LaDonna and team allowed us to reduce turnover for first year RN’s from 44% to 27%. Their methodology proved to be a powerful way to learn about needs and give support to new nurses.

A Discovery Model Learning Session and the use of the Talk card deck has revolutionized our mentoring program for middle and highschool students. I’ve witnessed a diverse array of students respond with curiosity, open-mindedness, and develop leadership skills. Students are empowered to solve personal challenges, and equipped mentors and school administrators identify new ways to advocate for student success.
Community Impact Manager
We work with organizations that share our values of…
We value people of all races, classes, and genders. Equity is not only about outcomes, but opportunities. Our approach to working with people incorporates how systems impact experience and learning, and fosters transformation at multiple levels.
One of our primary goals is to bring belief systems to the forefront by providing opportunity for authentic conversations. Beliefs about change are instrumental in propelling the journey forward to find accessible and sustainable solutions.
Resilience is the sustained ability of communities to withstand, adapt to, and recover from adversity. We specialize in building empathetic and understanding connections between peers, reminding us that we are not alone in the midst of difficulty.
