SUMMIT

The expanding Creative Evolutions ecosystem is action-focused! We are excited to learn more about you and see how we can collaborate to move forward together!  We provide a variety of consulting services that have grown from traditional models in new ways, and are exploring new ways to work with individuals and organizations creatively. 

We work with creative organizations and individuals of all kinds - a list of some current and past organizations is below!

SERVICES

Some of the ways we currently support organizations and individuals:

Long-Form Organizational Transition - Operating from a relationship-based position, we have partnered with several organizations over a multi-year period to navigate strategic shifts, cultural shifts, board restructuring, and staffing transitions (including founder departures) in integrated ways.

Turning Values or Purpose into Behaviors and Action - Choosing a list of value words, or doing trainings on Equity or Diversity is only a first step.  We work with organizations to focus on activating behaviors and decisions that illuminate values or purpose. 

Strategy and Vision - Evolving from the traditional 'Strategic Plans', we have developed new ways to engage in strategy work with organizations that embraces making practical choices that guide the organization forward and don't stay 'on the shelf'.

 

Rebuilding Funding Resources in Healthy Ways -  Partnering with donors, funders, and investors to prioritize efficiency and impact, increasing the effectiveness of invested funds in creative fields.

Executive Search - Creative Evolutions has developed a variety of approaches to executive hiring that shift the paradigm to  treat candidates as valuable human beings, bring true expertise to bear in evaluation, and strengthen an organization's staff and partnerships through the hiring process.  Read about some principles of our executive search processes here, and see some of our placements and open positions here!

Hiring and Succession for Staff - Shifting the approaches to hiring and support of all positions with an emphasis on people and the long-term stability of the team.  This includes organizational structuring support, co-leadership models, and hiring processes for roles throughout the organization.

Interim Management - Creative Evolutions has piloted a new approach to Interim Management that centers and empowers the current team with expert support.
 

Board Realignment, Reconception, and Rebuilds - Revisiting the purpose and obligation of boards, and aligning those around expertise and benefit to the organization and its purpose.

Organizational Succession - Working with a community lens to consider the contributions and assets of an organization, and thoughtful approaches to mergers, passing on programming to other organizations, or sunsetting.
