Collaborative Planning

Decorativ e

Helping leaders, organizations, and communities use collaboration to create change and take action.

The team at S & G Endeavors believes that organizations and their leaders can best impact real change by working toward long term impact. Collaboration is key to an organization’s success, especially in today’s world where there is so much competition for resources, time and attention.

We design collaborative change that drives client action

With every engagement, our consulting services help you:

  • DESIGN a collaborative change process for the entire organization.
  • Facilitate a meaningful CHANGE experience for all participants.
  • Create structures that drive ACTION and increased buy-in for the future.

EC Roadmap

This process is best captured in our Engaged Change Process Road-map that outlines the steps and activities we use to facilitate our clients toward meaningful impactful change. Here is our latest blog post telling our story and describing our process for working with our clients.


S&G helps our clients with collaborative projects that are customized to meet your needs. Whether corporate, nonprofit, individual, or government agency; we work with you to ensure you achieve your outcomes by designing the right change approach to drive action, including the following examples:

“We brought a diverse group together from across the state and S&G Endeavors did a great job of working them through a process to identify common goals, objectives, and next steps to achieve a common good. They made the process well worth the time and effort.”

  “Working with the team at S & G Endeavors made the merger exciting. Between the technical challenges of merging two very different organizations and the participants different visions of what a group should look like, the prospect of the merger seemed to be a long shot at times. S & G’s optimistic attitude and ability to remain focused on the core issues that  needed to be resolved, combined with their dogged persistence, has supported us in creating an organization that will create a vastly improved environment for cycling in Austin.”

Conferences and Summits

We love the energy and the opportunities to build momentum when a collaborative project hosts a conference or summit. S & G Endeavors employs a team that can manage these events from marketing, registration, day-of-event management, and follow up. This will allow your team to focus on the important work of building a great agenda and series of workshops and assist in turning out the participants.
