APPROACH

At Strickland Strategies, we believe that there are always strengths to build upon – no matter what. Like the nautilus we believe in building on the chambers or foundation that is already there – and begin with helping all to find the grains of this strength on which we help you grow your mission.

 

Mother Teresa (yes, that Mother Teresa) purportedly said “Without money there is no mission." At Strickland Strategies we build on this, adding “everyone passionate about the mission of your organization is instrumental in drawing in donors to see that mission come to fruition.”

The Chambered Nautilus

A perfect image for evolution

In the cross section of the shell, you’ll notice the chambers that spiral around and around. As the creature matures, it outgrows it’s chamber and grows a new one to accommodate its slightly larger size. Similarly, in order to begin a new stage in our growth, we have to think outside the box.


Yet, every time we abandon an old worldview for a new and wider vision, we merely find ourselves in a larger box. And while each box serves its particular function for a time, we are always in danger of claiming the chamber we currently occupy as the ultimate one.


The spiral shape suggests that it can keep growing forever. There is no design for a final chamber. The creature cannot go back to previous ones – they no longer fit. It cannot stay in its present space or it will die. It must keep building new chambers as long as it lives. It has no choice but to move on, continually growing.
