If you’re ready to get clear about your purpose and grow your business, let’s get to work.
We are ideal for small and mid-sized businesses looking to clarify your vision and values or define your uniqueness in the market. We specialize in writing mission, vision and values statements, facilitating strategic planning and helping our clients build thought leadership. New in 2023, we're now offering culture-building and employee journey programs as well.
Research shows companies with a clear purpose outperform their peers. This is because purpose-driven businesses are better able to attract and retain top talent and are more appealing to the growing segment of purpose-conscious consumers. After nearly two-decades helping companies craft and tell their stories, we've learned three key steps to building an Alignd business: knowing your purpose, weaving it across the organization, and sharing it with others.
From defining your purpose and building a meaningful brand story to evaluating how employees and customers interact with your brand, we want to work with your team to define and activate your purpose. We also specialize in message development, strategic planning and thought leadership. With years of executive leadership experience on our side, we are strategic, efficient and committed to helping you grow your business on purpose.
