We help leaders tackle big questions with ease.
As a leader tasked with shepherding a company, division or initiatives, and getting big things done, you're likely facing one or more wide-open questions, like these:
At Marquee, we help you and your team get from A => Z and articulate a clear path forward by turning your problem-solving conversations, meetings and workshops into highly creative, engaging and effective experiences. We call this VIVID OUTCOMES. Our Method: Energizing Possibility.
But first, let's address a common dilemma.
Effectively mobilizing & motivating a group of people – often diverse in functional responsibilities or geographies – to think and problem-solve openly & creatively can be one of an executive’s or leader’s greatest challenges.
The problem is that most well-intended participants come to problem-solving meetings under a cloud of bias. Unfortunately, the executives or leaders facilitating problem-solving meetings are often the most biased.
leaders & their teams bring 3 things:
HISTORY WITH THE COMPANY & THE ISSUES
CONDITIONED YES/NO BOUNDARIES
SOLUTION PATTERNS (BRAIN RUTS)
Unfortunately, this cloud of bias is in direct opposition to what problem-solving meetings need to flourish:
Marquee solves leaders' problem-solving dilemma by offering them fresh energy + new windows of possibility at the same time.
A faster, easier, more interesting way to problem solve:
New discoveries & connections
A clear, distinct & energizing path forward
Marquee’s Vivid Outcomes Experience – our own unique and innovative approach to group problem solving – is based upon a five-part method that interjects creativity into the problem-solving process to help you break through biases and achieve a vivid outcome - a.k.a. clear, distinct and energizing path forward.
Our active method combines skilled facilitation with Marquee's external perspective + unique stimuliI + graphic recording + storytelling abilities to engage and energize you and your team, opening minds to new possibilities in your quest for thoughtful answers and a roadmap forward.
Because outside thinking helps you break through the status quo of your own biases. Marquee’s people not only lead and facilitate your big conversations, they actively participate in them, bringing fresh points of view, provocative interjections and strategic acuity & know-how to the mix. Marquee’s people also encourage discussion and exploration, and know how to help you break down walls, open minds to new possibilities and reach quick consensus.
Simple. Stories are easy to understand, project oneself into, remember and share. Stories make us think, make us feel, and are impetus for action. And intelligently mapping your problem-solving conversations and thinking into stories allows for something dynamic to happen among participants and stakeholders, both during and after the gathering.
Stimuli-driven activity gets everyone out of their comfort zones, and promotes a fun environment that enables participants to relax. Our unique creativity tools give the brain what it craves - unexpected stimulation that triggers new neural connections and gets the creative juices flowing.
Graphic recordings add colorful imagery to our storytelling, evoking emotion and heightened engagement. Nuggets of brilliance are easily captured, validating all points of view and bringing everyone and every voice into the conversation. This in turn enables you and your team to think more expansively, remember more clearly and problem-solve with increased confidence and energy. Recordings enable you to unpack your conversation at any time, take your conversation viral, and broaden your engagement.
