“Having a common language to talk about our goals and culture and what we bring to the market helped us get in sync.”

Why Dialect?

There are several ways to answer the question, “Why Dialect?”.

First, you can read what our clients say about us

Secondly, you can note the events that are happening when our clients usually hire us.  

  • There’s a new CEO.
  • There are several new members of the C-suite.
  • You have just merged with or acquired another company.
  • It’s time for a new strategic plan or a review of your current plan.

Thirdly, here are the opportunities or issues (aka “jobs to be done”) that clients want us to help with.

  • Your employees say that they don’t understand your vision or strategy … or even know what they are.
  • You need to differentiate your organization – for the first time or in a new way.
  • You’re implementing operational changes and want to make sure everyone is on board.  
  • You’ve seen a decline in employee engagement.
  • You want to change aspects of your culture. 
  • Your customers are frustrated with your declining service, lack of innovation, or slow adaptation to their needs.

Finally, we want you to know the most important way in which we’re different from other consulting firms.

Our identity/strategy model is built around an obvious but neglected truth – people are different.

More specifically we are cognitively different, and we have different ways of finding meaning in our work.  

There are other ways in which we differ from other consultants, but this is our “signature” – central to our DNA.  It’s what we weave into everything that we do.
