Through our work with Rimma and her team, we gained insights on how we can further activate community connectivity in ways not thought of before. They strategically curated Dialogues to inspire our leaders in next level thinking, which impacted their strategic objectives and helped define how we amplify our brand promise in the market.
Rimma and her team helped us build our market on the West Coast when Aesop was just beginning to uncover the opportunity. Her work enabled our Marketing team to build the right strategic partnerships and helped shape the vision for growth in a completely new geography. She knew everyone we absolutely needed to know to expand with impact.
Rimma and her team facilitated a provocative discussion on the topic of Attraction. The Dialogue took place in the dome of an old historical building that had a unique ambiance. The creation of the visceral experience coupled with the distinctive environment, enabled the group to instantly let go of any preconceived notions and reveal their own personal, emotional truths. The revelations from the inquiry process were both humbling and humorous, but most of all honest and authentic. Experiencing these varied narratives firsthand was completely engrossing and left me wanting more.
What I found so brilliant about the Think-Tank Dialogue is how it exposed something deeper about the way we communicate with others. Often we know what people think after some time has passed, but Rimma’s nuanced (and subtle) style of facilitation uncovers how we think. This process should be elevated and highly regarded for its unparalleled value in identifying the voice and perspective of every individual on a creative or strategic team.
The Think-Tank Dialogue exemplifies what is desperately needed: a dedicated space for deep listening and thoughtful conversation. Through Rimma’s gifted curation and facilitation, my mind was opened to new perspectives. I became part of a broader community of thinkers I remain connected to. These connected threads create a stronger fabric that makes nuanced and informed innovation and problem solving possible. This is the invaluable gift DIALOGUE offers the individuals and companies that work with them.
I was invited to a pop-up think tank on the topic of Belonging. While this was a lighter version of one of DIALOGUE’s think tanks, I was inspired by how the team quickly drew out insights from the attendees that felt personal and profound. Through a sequence of conversations, first as pairs, then as groups, then as a room, we were guided through a discussion designed to disarm and enlighten. I walked away with the realization that much could be done back in my own office.
