SYPartners is a consultancy that works with leaders to create systems of human-led, purpose-driven transformation at the organizational and societal levels. As a Senior Experience Designer, I helped infuse play, creative risk-taking, and emotional vulnerability into convenings of executives and social impact leaders.

Projects I contributed to include:

  • the national anti-bias conversation for Starbucks, with 130,000 people participating on the same day
  • a blindfold exercise that helped a fractured executive team come to terms with their own problematic leadership behaviors
  • new standards for vulnerable conversations within a global 10,000-person organization, socialized through decks of cards
  • a custom curation of artifacts of great leadership throughout history that expanded the ambition of new VPs at a major technology company
  • a futuristic innovation challenge that shifted successful executives’ relationship to agility and disruption
  • a skill-building activity around authentic communication for the 300+ employees of a social impact organization with a 100-year mandate
  • role-play exercises about unconscious bias for the 140,000+ employees of a global company shaken by internal revelations about systemic discrimination
  • reflection activities to deepen leaders’ emotional learning as they steered their organization through crises due to the Coronavirus pandemic
