We work with our partners to dig deep until we have truly identified their core purpose and gained strategic clarity. We then guide our partners in identifying and cultivating the social norms that can help align their teams behind their clear focus.

We design our engagements based on the particular needs of our clients. Some common offerings include leading strategy workshops, creating forums for conflict resolution and dialogue, and building leadership capacity through mentoring and 360 reviews.

Throughout the course of our projects, we prepare our partners with insights, tools and orientations that enable them to be highly adaptive and innovative in response to new opportunities and challenging contexts, while staying true to their core purpose.


"We had the great fortune to have the unique services of Resilience in Action to support and guide the strategic development and positioning for our exciting new spin-off organization.
In the many strategic planning experiences I've had with consultants, I can say that none came anywhere close to the breadth and value that Julia brought to our design effort.
Julia helped us create a unique orientation and compass regarding the importance of defining our core assets, unique values and differentiating culture with crystal clarity, which has enabled us to define strategic priorities, initiatives, and business pathways in a way that has confidently positioned us for the future.
Recognizing that our organization's future and mission success reside in a rapidly changing environment full of large challenges and opportunities is a great place to be.  I can say, unequivocally, that this unique and successful positioning was an outcome that would have been highly unlikely without Julia's expert and visionary guidance.  She possesses an extraordinary combination of knowledge, skills and experience in areas such as executive management, strategic visioning, creative facilitation, human interaction dynamics, sustainability, and systems thinking that are simply unparalleled."
