OUR CONSULTING PROCESS
We don’t have clients at The Narrative Project. We have partners.
Traditional consulting relationships are far too transactional. They don’t require the agency to understand the client’s audiences or stakeholders at a basic level; they don’t necessitate developing a true relationship between the client and consultant, and they lend themselves to the mistreatment of the consultant or a lack of work/life balance resulting in burnout.
We seek to change that.
We call the organizations we serve Partners, not clients because 1) we work exclusively with mission-aligned organizations, 2) we take a collaborative approach to communications management, and 3) we expect our partners to adhere to our core values of community care when working with our team.
When we sign on with a new partner, it’s after careful consideration into whether their goals and missions align with ours. Since we’re committed to forging a just world for every story and experience, we only sign on with organizations whose missions, if realized, will support the creation of that world. We believe that developing messages that resonate with diverse communities requires understanding them at their core. After all, the partnership isn’t about the transaction between the agency and the partner. It’s about furthering our partners’ missions in service of a greater good
