What Can You Expect?
We meet with you and your team to explore your purpose, peel back the layers of your organization and learn how it operates in order to understand any underlying issues. We do this to see what drives your organization and to develop a common understanding so we can clearly frame our work with you.
From this, we will outline what we suggest you need to work on, make recommendations for how you can approach it, help you to assess priorities, and choose what pace to address them to ensure success. Our role shifts from explorer to guider during this phase as we partner with you to deepen alignment and engagement with your teams. This includes providing practical tools, building staff capability, empowering teams, providing advice and coaching, to ultimately embed purpose in everything you do.
Don’t worry though, if you need additional doers, we’re happy to help with the heavy lifting when it makes sense. It doesn’t end there…as a client of Light Trail, we’re always available to help support you on your journey, reinforce new habits and assist in your continued success.
Light Trail empowers organizations to understand their values and purpose and shows them how to deeply embed them into strategies and actions.

Who We Work With
All successful organizations now and into the future will work to retain their unique perspective and place in the world while incorporating the demands and shared vision of stakeholders for better business practices. Those who deliver on improved accountability, transparency and positive social and environmental impact will thrive. It’s not just about being the best in the world, but also being the best for the world.
We help guide you through this understanding by providing a different perspective to create clarity from the chaos.
Good for Profit
Business is changing
Maybe you want to become a Certified B Corp and use your business as a force for good? Perhaps you want to work with your supply chain to create better, more sustainable products and services for your customers? Do you want to introduce more transparency, embed better community engagement practices, or even radically shift strategy?
In all these situations, making changes will positively change the way you operate and help your people thrive; it’s about your company creating a better legacy and long-term impact.
We help you build stronger commitment by engaging people in managing these changes.
Good for Non-Profit
Amplify your positive impact
If you’re a non-profit or community service organization aiming to deliver on your purpose, you might be limited by your sources of funding and are limiting your ambitions through a scarcity mindset. It’s also often difficult to truly build valuable and equal partnerships that create additional opportunities.
Clearly defining and embedding your purpose across the vision, mission, strategy and tactics of your organization is critical to success and helps create support for your broader outcomes.
Light Trail understands that creating value, building strong partnerships, or developing internal effectiveness to grow your positive impact is often difficult. You may not have the right in-house skill sets, or you might lack the entrepreneurial experience to move the process forward. Sometimes you just need an objective viewpoint to help you see the wood for the trees.
We help you navigate these issues, become stronger as an organization and ultimately amplify your positive impact.
If you’re interested in understanding how to improve the impact of your organization and engage your people in positive change, we’d love to connect.
Surrey Libraries engaged Light Trail to support the launch of a new service delivery model. Undergoing this transformational organizational initiative is exciting and overwhelming. Greg and Steve have helped us with this initiative over two years, providing strong support to our team. They’ve guided us to focus on connecting the initiative to strategy, linking to our purpose and values. They’ve helped draft communications and implementation plans and conducted assessments of progress. They’ve coached our team leaders, providing tactical tools and templates to build organizational capability and capacity.
