Kitchen Table Talks: Personalized Consulting
  • Feel disjointed and need help with next steps?
  • Want advice on implementing, testing, or generating new ideas before investing a lot of resources, time, and labor?
  • Would appreciate having some feedback and guidance on how to move forward with a project, next career phase, or opportunity?

Our Kitchen Table Talks are personalized consulting services for folks, projects, and organizations who want guidance, feedback, or advice on navigating a specific challenge, strategizing on next steps, or reviewing existing projects.

This offering goes beyond the 90-minute meeting by encompassing a thorough review of any documents and materials you share with us prior to our consultation. Furthermore, we also provide you with a detailed assessment report and roadmap to guide you on the path to achieving your goals in alignment with your values and resources.

Finally, Kitchen Table Talks can be suitable for individuals, projects, and organizations since it adapts to the scope of your work.

What Kitchen Table Talk Is

  • This thorough offering saves you hours of research and work by providing you with informed feedback, culturally responsive guidance, and strategic advice on your challenges and plans.
  • It is a joyful and insightful experience as it makes you consider new perspectives about your project and offer actionable insights on how to evolve from where you are to where you want to be.
  • After our meeting, you’ll have more confidence in yourself and your project, allowing you to take the next steps with a sense of clarity and (hopefully) peace.

What Kitchen Table Talk Is Not

Even though this consulting format entails a thorough review of your work and offers tailored guidance, it might not be suitable for projects or challenges that require a more in-depth involvement or collaboration with multiple people.

The scope of what you wish to review and the level of involvement you want us to have in your project will mark the difference between one session or multiple sessions. 

Please note that our Kitchen Table Talks consulting is not a one-time event. We’re committed to your success and will work with you to determine the best course of action for your project. If we both conclude that additional sessions are necessary to achieve your desired outcomes, we’ll be happy to arrange them for a discounted fee.
