The Challenge

As a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, the Boulder Potters’ Guild has become a thriving community of almost 80 members. After 50 years of continued growth, the Guild looks to the next 50 years and what it might become. The challenge was to develop a strategic vision and core values that the Guild can use to guide its efforts in the coming years.

The Solution

The Bridge Studio designed and facilitated a day-long retreat with the Board of Directors to complete a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats), write a vision statement, and identify core values for the organization. Each of these products was produced using creative and collaborative exercises, grounded in meditation and self-reflection.

The Impact

The retreat produced a SWOT analysis, vision statement, and core values, as well as team-building opportunites and consensus building.
