facilitation

When it’s clear that something needs to change, but it’s not clear how or when, or even why, Catalyst Muse helps deepen understanding, clarify goals, explore solutions, and develop an action plan. We don’t provide the answers. We help you discover them. The foundation of this work is Creative Problem Solving (CPS). The structured yet fluid process can be used whole or in part, combined with other methodologies, or to inform a fully customized process shaped to the client’s need.

Collaboration

All of our work is collaborative. Yet, there are distinct differences between facilitations and collaborations. With facilitations, we stay out of the work, or the content. We act as skilled guides who establish an atmosphere of trust, inclusiveness, and support, so the people can concentrate on the process. With collaborations, we provide guidance and act as creative thought partners who engage directly in the work.

  • conceptualize and initiate projects
  • write original content
  • edit manuscripts

  • conduct field research (focus groups, interviews, observations)
