Reaching goals isn’t always obvious. Our team has extensive experience in mixed methods and stakeholder-driven program evaluation.
Our goal is to build unique relationships with stakeholders to identify needs and make visible systems that impact outcomes--intended and unintended.
Learning is personal. We excel at designing learning experiences that take into account who learns are in order to maximize learning.
Understanding by Design, known also as backward design. We utilize this practice to customize learning experiences through intentional curriculum planning.
Organizations are dynamic entities. We have experience helping organizations flourish through change through identifying values and aligning processes to express those values in their work.
Using an ecological systems approach, we begin with stakeholder feedback to understand what is working, what is possible, and how to enhance capacity for organizations to thrive.
Diversity adds value. Period. Being successful in interactions across differences is a challenge. Our team values the complexity of human interactions.
We have spent years developing our own intercultural capacities and are highly committed to evidence-based practice. Team members have decades of experience training and assessing intercultural capacities in an array of contexts.
Learning experiences require attention to emotion and human interactions.
We customize training and learning experiences to make them authentic, relevant, empowering and usable for the learner.
The online environment can be leveraged for deep connection and understanding between humans when designed well.
Through partnership with filmmakers and psychologists, we have developed evidence-based techniques for facilitating dialogue and learning online that addresses the needs of the learners and leverages their prior experiences to promote transformative learning.
CCI was founded in 2013 by four women who strove for a different way of being in the professional landscape. These four women had a vision of working alongside individuals and organizations to help them understand ways in which learning and transformation happen. Although time brings change to every door, CCI has continued to adapt to be able to support institutions and learners in their own process of transformation.
