Strategy Consulting

One-on-one coaching is a great way to propel your organization forward. Karla has a rare background in engineering coupled with an MBA. Today, she’s a voracious learner, constantly adapting her strategic advice in alignment with the times. Her left- and right-brain training enable Karla to draw strategic connections others often miss, while her artistic pursuits help her think more imaginatively on behalf of clients. Having Karla as your on-call master strategist means she’ll have you on speed dial and offer exceptional insights and recommendations to reach new heights in organizational performance.

You’ll have access to Karla’s brain to help you:

  • Navigate complexity and create a process to achieve success
  • Strategize on solutions to address gaps, stumbling blocks, lack of leadership, and fear of change
  • Read through your research to distill true insights
  • Walk you through application of the Differentiation Zone process, principles and tool
  • Partner with you to identify true differentiation in the marketplace
  • Review your proposed strategy
  • Ensure your plan is truly strategic
  • Coach you on how to inspire leaders to bold action

Consider Karla your secret advantage.

If you’d like Karla Raines to help you evaluate your options and identify opportunities consistent with the Differentiation Zone approach, consider enlisting her strategic counsel in a series of coaching sessions where, together, you can review documents, have strategic conversations, revisit any step in the Differentiation Zone process, and uncover insights. One phone call with Karla can help you set a new course, while other organizational hurdles may require a few phone calls or meetings.

SCHEDULE YOUR SESSIONS

Karla can provide you with a one-time quote or bundled pricing that allows for multiple discussions that suit your needs.

Executives, sessions may be shared or split between two executives within the same organization. Perhaps you’d like to involve your colleague or board chair. Consultants, consider inviting your client on the call or point person for your project. 

Schedule a Calendy appointment for phone or in-person bundled and one-time rates.

What an exciting concept! I love your focus on competition and encouraging executives to acknowledge and embrace that reality. I can see how these principles might be applied to purpose-driven organizations with a heavy emphasis on earned income as well as those who rely on more traditional philanthropic fundraising. All of us are facing more competition as we adjust to increasing expectations for convenient and meaningful engagement with our organizations. Differentiation Zone can have big impact for nonprofits – and be just what we need given the realities we face.”

Karla is credited for giving leaders the confidence and courage to take a strategic stand. There’s never been a better use of your organization’s time than when they gather with Karla at the front of the room. “High-powered, hip, accomplished and a master at her craft” are only a few of the many words boards and executives have used to describe her superior facilitation skills. “Karla corrals folks who don’t want to be corralled … and they still adore her.” Bring Karla Raines to your entire organization and, together, you can establish a genuine understanding of your differentiation and set a course for remarkable results.

“The Essence of Strategy is Choice.” – Karla Raines

Getting your customer to choose your organization isn’t about describing “what we do.” It’s about knowing “why we matter.” Purpose-driven organizations rely on static and outdated strategy models that don’t recognize the fast pace of encroaching market influences and disrupting customer preferences. The only way to get in front of a customer’s zeal for making faster and better choices is by adopting their mindset.

Introducing Differentiation Zone®!

No other model recognizes the context in which purpose-driven organizations compete today. Differentiation Zone is the first of its kind and field-tested by experts. It helps you adopt a customer mindset with a unique four-step process.

Created in the real world for real clients over a 10-year-period. Spend a day with its creator, Karla Raines, to learn what sets Differentiation Zone apart from other models.

Through insightful case studies and “hands-on sleuthing” about your own organization, we’ll discover your Zones. Because the Differentiation Zone is inherently flexible and collaborative, teams and consultants can use their one-day-camp discoveries to guide research, inform analyses, facilitate conversations and inspire authentic conclusions.

Highlights

  • This is a deep dive into Differentiation Zone principles and strategic planning steps.
  • Ten thousand hours of field testing is condensed into a day and a half of insights and ideas for your organization.
  • Practice using the model with mock case examples.
  • Leave this session having competed a Differentiation Zone analysis of your own organization.
