Satisfied clients.

Moving forward.

Plan for the future and still take care of business.

Your dedicated, hard working team...

Your people care about your organization and its mission. They want it to succeed and have some great ideas about how to get there.  Everyone can imagine a thriving, dynamic, successful organization – yet it can be just out of reach. All organizations have an immune system that resists change, and the day to day demands of the business are urgent and non-stop.

In less than two days Idea-Catchers can help you develop a comprehensive big picture plan complete with bite-size action steps and built in accountability. With plan in hand, our teams marvel at their breakthrough achievements. That’s why these folks from Insight Creative Group look so happy. It’s fun to come to work.

What clients are saying

Maria really got to know our people and culture. Working with her has been a game changer . We're focused, growing and more intentional than ever.
Eric Joiner
CEO, Insight Creative Group
With everyone’s ideas and opinions on the table, we have been able to determine what is really important to this organization and our decisions and future will be the better for it.
John Gladden
Executive Director, Delta Dental of Oklahoma
Maria Birkhead masterfully led us through an organization changing experience. We were energized and had fun at the same time. More importantly, we now have a strategic management team in place composed of staff and board that looks at the plan's action steps on a quarterly basis.
Carol Wilkinson Troy
Former Executive Director, Center for Nonprofit Management
We are all committed to achieving our plan, growing our company, and being the market leader in LTC Pharmacy. We enhanced our corporate strategy for the short and long run… Great process, solid facilitation!
Bill Shields
Past President, PharMerica
Other facilitators tried to handle this group and failed. Maria has a unique ability to keep people engaged and productive. She has a velvet hammer… a way of finessing the group to stay on task.
John Williams
Executive Director, Oklahoma Bar Association
I am excited for groups that will benefit from Maria’s outstanding expertise – she is a consummate professional who will help them go further in a much more efficient, effective manner than they could ever go alone.
Ann Felton
Chairman & CEO, Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity
Our two-day workshop was extraordinarily productive. Maria kept us focused and task oriented. Because she is a quick study, she assimilated unique – not to mention arcane information and enhanced our dialogue. No exaggeration to say we did four days’ work in two days.
