diagnostics

Our proprietary assessments provide actionable insights for either amping up your organization's collaborative capacity or launching a new collaborative endeavor. 

Need to strengthen or repair an existing collaboration?
Myco’s Collaboration Capacity Diagnostic is designed to assess the current health of your organization’s collaboration ecosystem.

Ready to initiate and build something new?
As the first step in helping teams unlock their capacity for deep collaboration, Myco's Collaboration Readiness Assessment brings clarity to the scope and coherence of could-be collaborators’ respective visions and evaluates collective readiness to effectively and sustainably do together that which cannot be achieved alone.

"I now have a way to reframe my anxiety about moving forward that will help me overcome my slog. After just one session, I feel motivated and excited to get to work on my big undertaking. I certainly have not felt that way about this work in a very long time. Thank you so, so much!" 

“I was feeling stuck. You have this ability to clear things up for me when we talk. You are really good at narrowing down the issue in a logical, thoughtful way, yet with empathy.”

executive counsel

Whether you’re on a new team committed to building strong foundations, on a troubled team that needs to get unstuck, or on a rapidly expanding team that’s trying to duct tape together a cardboard car as it hurls down the freeway: we can help. 

"Deb was instrumental to my successful transition into the role of Board Chair of IMPACCT Brooklyn."

 

“[Deb] takes everyone seriously and pushes for clarity where needed.

“I honestly could not imagine working with a more skilled retreat facilitator. Throughout the process, I felt as if she was a member of our department for years; that is how well she understood our history and needs.”

 “[Deb is] positive, clear, engaging, and the group projects/discussions were meaningful. [She] also have a deep sense of confidence and humility -- a paradox of character that is not always apparent in many academics. Thanks for your example to all of us."

“Deb would be my absolute first choice for any complex project involving collaboration or facilitation. One of the smartest and most thoughtful people out there!”

design and facilitation

For situations where multiple stakeholders want to come together to build something new and want to create the conditions for amazing collaboration at the outset, we can help.
 

The process of deciding what to do and how to do it often benefits from the involvement of an external facilitator--someone who is at once committed to your shared success and unbiased in their outlook about how to achieve those ends.

Deb was such a committed, thorough, insightful, and adaptive partner throughout our strategic refresh process.

"Myco listened intently to our needs, then crafted an engaging, constructive retreat that enabled us to have the conversations we needed most, advancing our goals further than I thought possible in a half-day retreat." 

“Deb is the ultimate scholar practitioner who "walks the walk" of collaboration. Count on Deb to clarify and measure outcomes, provide actionable feedback and deliver results while strengthening individual and group capacity. She is exceptional - as a leader, collaborator and fellow human being.”
