MOE

Mom, daughter, gardener, wife, ex-wife, adventurer, entrepreneur, and consultant Moe Carrick believes that people make organizations great. Companies large and small are routinely brought to their knees by the so called "soft stuff” of people problems–as anyone know who has tried, this work is hard. As a facilitator, protagonist, consultant, entrepreneur, author, employer, and relentless optimist, Moe believes that people can and should thrive at work and that when they do, organizations succeed. With over 30 years of work in organizations on issues of partnership, leadership, inclusion, strategy and culture Moe believes that rigorous self-awareness, courage, honest dialogue, active involvement, and empathy are fundamentals to building full partnerships based on trust and curiosity. As a white, US-born, heterosexual woman, Moe strives to use her privilege with grace to surface assumptions that interfere with teams and to explore systemic patterns.

Moe holds a Master’s Degree in OD, is a Certified Daring Way™/Dare to Lead™ Facilitator,  a Coach, and administrator of a variety of tools in her trade. She is also a Senior Consultant with White Men as Full Diversity Partners (WMFDP,) the market leaders in including white men in the critical conversations required to sustain truly inclusive cultures.

Moe is passionate about the role work plays in creating meaning for our lives and in the role business can play as a force for good. She is a regular blogger on topics related to people at work and is a contributor to Conscious Company Magazine. Maven House Press released her first book, bestseller FIT MATTERS: How to Love Your Job, with co-author Cammie Dunaway in 2017. Her second book, Bravespace: Creating Workplaces Fit for Human Life, releases in June 2019.

Moe protects time for love, running, apple butter, fiction, and a good sleep.

MEI

Mei found the title “creative” hidden in her childhood among the Wind River Mountains. She traced out her love for creating connections on worn-out topographic maps and discovered a knack for problem-solving after frequently shooting her hand into the air to ask the hard questions. 

Some years later, and armed with a degree in Communication Design, Mei has worked with clients such as Pitch Engine, The Impact Investment Center, and NOLS. She has also won awards with the National Geographic and the Young Photographer’s Alliance and is often recognized for her courageous pursuit of insightful content creation, efficient team building, and social justice initiatives.

More recently, Mei spends her time working alongside Moe, where she passionately tackles topics such as leadership, fit, with nontraditional consulting. When asked about her dreams in life, Mei might get a far-away look in her eye as she describes a world with equality, an unlimited travel budget, and great water pressure.

- The Tools of our Trade -

The tools we use include assessment, design, facilitation, consulting, experiences and group/individual coaching. Our work centers on 6 key and connected areas:

strat-01.jpg

Shared Strategy Planning

Shhhh. Don't tell: strategic plans that result in binder on a shelf are useless. It’s true. Our interactive strategy meetings and offsite retreats move way past the goal of a tidy binder to get people really talking deeply about where you've been and where you dream of going.

An engaging, thoughtful, and visually supported process results in a roadmap for the future in which everyone feels heard and next steps are obvious.

culture-01.jpg

CULTURE

Culture is the lifeblood at work and it drives how you do everything. It is hard to measure but felt by everyone. We believe that organizations must be resilient, sustainable and focused on more than just the bottom line in order to face the challenges of business today.

If you want audacious results, culture takes center stage. We help you assess, celebrate, integrate and leverage culture as the center of how you roll.

structure-01.jpg

STRUCTURE

People are not machines: they are messy, complex and unpredictable but at the heart, most of us simply want to do the right thing. How we organize people (done right) creates clarity, accountability and connection for everyone. Examining structure reduces confusion, increases engagement, and aids in talent planning.

We can help you assess yours to see if it's working, and change it when it makes sense.

leader.jpg

Leadership

The crux of leadership lies in cultivating relationships. Period. Lots of other stuff matters but not as much. People know their company through their supervisor, which means your leaders should be focused on creating connection, empathy and trust while killing gossip, entitlement and collusion.

From the front-line to the Board, we offer group and individual work for brave leaders at all levels.

team-01.jpg

Team

Best. Team. Ever. Do you remember yours? Kind of like the perfect soufflé, great teams don’t just happen--they take effort not to flop. Great teams are made up of real-deal human beings who get all up in each others business for a common goal. They co-create safety, honesty, and trust to be real with each other.

Our custom approach delivers WHOA memories for your people to act differently and feel better back at work.

partnership-01.jpg

Inclusion

Yeah, sure, it sounds easy. Leveraging diversity and including everyone? But heck, real partnership across difference is way tougher than most of us think.

We view inclusion as a journey not a destination, and we think these times call for all hands on deck, including white men. We start with looking inside at bias and privilege and move beyond to tangible skills for reaching across.
