Organizations can be sandboxes for creative thinking but also hotbeds for discord. We foster dialogue in a calm, safe environment to encourage participation and honest discussion about difficult issues.

“Sophie Parker partnered with us to create a retreat for our widely geographically diverse teams once a year onsite. She approached the planning with thoughtful concentration, and helped us define our goals and clarify our desired outcomes for the event. She then designed a great day, with just the right mix of team building work, fun and concentrated planning time. The day was a great success. I would recommend Sophie for her acute intelligence and perceptiveness, her extensive knowledge of facilitation and group dynamics and her fabulous sense of humor. She is a joy to work with.”
–Cheryl Schaffer, Chief Administrative and Financial Officer, Union of Concerned Scientists


“The Town of Erving had been struggling with morale problems in our volunteer fire department for over two years. Unfortunately, things had reached the point where our ability to provide emergency services was suffering. Through a series of meetings and conversations, Sophie Parker was able to help the Town and the firefighters reexamine the issues. In less than two months we began to heal and returned to providing top notch service to our residents. Thanks Sophie.”
–Thomas E. Sharp, Erving Town Administrator
