Shifting Patterns works alongside changemaker leaders to develop the collaborative competencies to bring about positive change in their workplaces and communities. They help clients identify what’s really getting in the way of effective teamwork, such as ineffective meetings, unhealthy conflict, and lack of accountability, build the skills to address these challenges, and put a support system in place to maintain improved performance.

Shifting Patterns works alongside clients to plan and lead meetings that are participatory, action-oriented, and consistently meet expectations. They help teams articulate their purpose, set goals, develop action plans, and put the structures and processes in place that contribute to effective teamwork. They also work with associations, networks, alliances, and coalitions to define their purpose and membership criteria, conduct stakeholder mapping, and determine how members will work together.

Shifting Patterns has helped social enterprise accelerators, like Ashoka Changemakers, socially responsible business associations, like B Local: Mid-Atlantic Region, and social justice networks, like National Justice for Our Neighbors to determine their strategic direction, strengthen team leadership skills, and improve communication and coordination.
