what we do
Blue Dot Consulting works with the inner life of individuals, teams, and organizations.
We help you unlock self-limiting patterns, develop new insights, and apply design tools
to better see and do what needs to be done.
In each stage of life
we have a growth edge,
beyond which lies our
next best self.
Our growth edge represents the new identity toward which
we feel called, but don’t yet know how to be. It's like entering a dark room: we bump around, feel uncomfortable and resistant, and sometimes let old habits get in our way. But we persist because in that room is who we want to be.
Blue Dot Consulting is your guide, advocate, ally, provocateur, and strategist as you navigate
the next best steps toward
your next best self in work and life.
Blue Dot Consulting has extensive experience designing
and facilitating learning cohorts
built on the intrinsic curiosity
shared by all people.
We create learning environments
where participants self-develop
their capacity for leadership, discernment, and strategic action.
The results are expanded skills, deepened self-awareness,
and new relationships
that lead to greater impact.
Strategy & Design
must be in place
before a dollar can
make a difference.
This includes clarity about how
we are uniquely positioned
to make change, insight into the systemic leverage points
of the issues we care about,
and an ability to
design and evaluate our actions.
Blue Dot Consulting is expert
at each stage, bridging
the “world as it is” with philanthropy’s vision of
“the world as it could be.”
Working Effectively Across
Our internal filters both
limit and make possible
of the world around us.
Our filters distort how we interpret
data, news, conversations, and relationships. They reinforce what we think, what we believe, and what protects us from feeling vulnerable.
Working effectively across differences starts with awareness of how these filters direct our behavior. We can then see our biases with understanding and learn to meet difference with an unguarded, open heart.
Blue Dot Consulting has a unique background in intercultural development, interpretation theory, & mindfulness. Through tailored learning and action, we help organizations leverage the power of difference to increase understanding, effectiveness, and innovation.
Retreats for Discernment, Design, Planning & Action
Let’s face it:
we’re all going crazy
We know we need to stop sometimes and take a breath., but reflection lands at the bottom of our list. Occasionally, we wedge strategic planning into the blur, but the high expectations don’t match the short shrift we give it. We end up anxious, overwhelmed, and fatigued.
Blue Dot Consulting convenes retreats to give you much-needed space for:
purposeful connections, new perspectives, taking stock, commiserating, celebrating, and thought provoking conversation.
Retreats range from informal and free-flowing to focused planning to big-picture strategizing. We share our knowledge, guide hard conversations, and help you rediscover purpose.
