An important aspect of ICE’s overall mission is to help other well-meaning individuals and organizations to be more effective at social and political change by better negotiating the complicated cultural forces underlying our society. Our evolutionary lens can help educate and inform, shedding light on how NGO’s and nonprofits might be unknowingly hurting or helping their cause.
Our Client Solutions services are designed to do just that. Our goal is to empower change makers and social entrepreneurs with the latest cultural knowledge, to provide new points of leverage, and to illuminate productive and counter-productive strategies. There are hundreds of thousands of passionate, mission-driven change-makers working for the evolution and transformation of our culture. Our goal is to help them do it smarter and better.
Our work with nonprofits reveals the underlying yet often unexamined cultural issues that impact so much of their important work. ICE’s perspective on cultural evolution provides clarity and strategic guidance for organizations working to make a positive difference in the world with limited resources.
All prospective clients are prequalified by ICE to assure that we can add real and measurable value to their efforts and that the mission and goals of client organizations are generally consistent with ICE’s mission.
Our Client Services are priced on a sliding scale according to available client resources and measurable value delivered. Moreover, to ensure client satisfaction ICE offers a risk free try-out described at the bottom of this webpage.
Training Seminars on Using the Power of the Evolutionary Perspective
ICE offers short but effective 3 hour morning or afternoon training sessions for both the staff and leadership personnel of qualifying nonprofits or public benefit organizations. Custom multi-day seminars are also available.
Our training seminars are described further on this associated webpage. If you are interested in any form of training, we invite you to contact us at the email or phone number at the bottom of this page to discuss how the effectiveness of your organization’s work and mission can be improved through the power of the evolutionary perspective.
Most progressive nonprofit organizations could be much more effective at raising money, attracting supporters, and influencing media if they were more aware of how the values and convictions expressed (intentionally or unintentionally) in their communications are heard by those immersed in other value frames and/or other worldviews. In fact, it can be all too easy to subtly alienate the very people one is seeking to persuade. ICE’s communications audit is designed to “tune up” the language of websites, white papers, scripts, speeches, and other forms of communication created by nonprofit organizations. ICE’s communications audit service delivers a detailed analysis and concise recommendations for the improvement of any form of public communication. The audit can be done quickly and inexpensively, and it is guaranteed to produce measurable positive results.
Communications Consulting and Design
Beyond the simple auditing of existing communications, ICE also works with qualifying nonprofit or public benefit clients to write and design communications from scratch. ICE also provides a wide range of consulting services, which bring the power of the evolutionary perspective to practically any nonprofit project or function.
Our consulting services are described further on this associated webpage. If you are interested in any form of consulting consistent with ICE’s mission and expertise, we invite you to contact us at the email or phone number at the bottom of this page to discuss how the effectiveness of your organization’s work and mission can be improved through the power of the evolutionary perspective. Further, clients interested in exploring ICE’s consulting services are encouraged to start with the risk free service evaluation meeting described below.
Custom Messaging Campaigns
Beyond the communications audit and the more extensive involvement in project-specific consulting as described above, ICE also creates communications from scratch for qualifying nonprofit or public benefit clients who seek to use the power of the evolutionary perspective to increase their reach and effectiveness. An ICE Custom Campaign can be created under the client’s identity or brand, or it can be conducted directly under identity of ICE.
All Custom Campaigns begin with Phase I, which involves the creation and refinement of a campaign master plan. ICE’s Climate Campaign Plan provides an example of an ICE master campaign plan document. Then during Phase II the communications strategies and media vehicles described in the master plan are launched and then carefully measured according to the goals of the campaign.
Qualifying nonprofit or public benefit clients can get a taste of ICE’s client services by inviting us in for a free morning or afternoon sample session. During this session ICE provides a two-hour training seminar that demonstrates the value of evolutionary thinking and perception. This abbreviated seminar is guaranteed to provide new insight and direction for the members of any team. After the seminar, ICE’s partners request a brief meeting with the potential client’s decision makers. In this meeting, ICE will present a custom proposal for client services that will include a variety of options, pricing, and achievable goals.
After the sample seminar and meeting with decision makers, potential clients can evaluate ICE’s proposal and take up to one month to decide on next steps. Positive results are guaranteed for all ICE client services.
