What do you need? What is our approach? What have we changed? How are we reaching out? Who are we? How can you contact us?

In one word, integrity sums up our mission. While integrity and honesty are often used interchangeably, our interpretation goes deeper, to the root origins of the word.

1. The quality or condition of being whole or undivided; completeness
Integrity permeates all of our work. Each one of our services sources from the Sea Change Design Process, a systemic or holistic approach to solving challenges involving strategy, people, and artifacts. Because of this fluid framework, we work in "wholes," not just parts, helping our clients understand the complete picture drawn from the larger perspective and the critical details. Our work is not based on analysis, but rather on synthesis, the combining of separate elements to form a coherent whole. Even the way the Sea Change Design Consortium functions, by networking and integrating diverse disciplines, is an expression of integrity.

2. The state of being unimpaired; soundness
Integrity nurtures fruitful relationships. For our clients, and for us, the experience of building healthy partnerships is the best part of our work. It is an unparalleled feeling to know that people can and do lead positive change and innovation by trusting in themselves, in their coworkers and colleagues, and in us. Through our consulting, coaching, workshops, and speaking, we've been given the privilege of helping people heal, grow, and excel. Wisdom comes from being whole. We are all the wiser for the challenges we've taken on together.

3. Steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code
Integrity guides us towards a viable future. We believe that design contributes enormous value to the search for sustainable solutions, ones that satisfy equally the concerns of economics, equity and the environment. We're helping to make this happen by being steadfastly committed to our clients' success in all of these areas.
