Case Study 1: 'From Worst to First'

Why the "Contract" program?
 
Unbeknown to the agency, this relationship was hanging by a thread. Our interviews revealed a climate of distrust, frustration and poisonous gossip.
 
Client was giving the ad agency its last chance.  Agency hoped to wipe the slate clean and start over. 
 
The breakthrough:
 
Advertiser and agency discovered that the origins of their problems were conflicts between people no longer with either company.   "Ghosts" were running their relationship!
 
Program shifted attention and energy from a divisive past to a shared future, empowered with new communication and productivity skills.
 
 
Results two months after program, as reported by the advertiser:
