What is a systems change organization?
Any organization, non-profit or for-profit, that wants to go beyond solving surface level issues to shift underlying infrastructure and collective belief systems to become more in alignment with the flows of nature.
The ultimate goal of systems change organizations is to create human systems that enable all life to thrive.
You're here to create a better world.
But you're finding that it's more complex than you thought.
We're here to transform your organization to turn confusion into clarity and expand your systemic impact.
You've got a big vision for systemic change. Maybe it's in education… or climate. food systems. or energy. economic and social justice. or housing.
Whatever system(s) you are motivated to shift, you see the connectedness between all of them. You know that there's a leverage point somewhere that can help you shift all of them.
You've been on this journey for a few years now, and have found some success. You've gotten your first revenue and have more on the way. You've made some great impact and feel good about your work thus far.
However, you feel like you're hitting the glass ceiling of the status quo.
Juggling all stakeholder needs, keeping your organization funded, and telling your story as it evolves is… complicated.
As you find initial traction, you're seeing greater potential to towards deep systemic improvements that increase the well being of your community.
But manifesting that potential with all the existing commitments feels confusing and complicated.
You know that you're ready to start communicating, raising funds for, and operationalizing your vision with a clear strategy of execution. But evolving how you work to match the beauty of your vision has been frustratingly slow.
If this resonates with your current situation, we are here to help you get to that next level.

Abundant FUNdraising
Fundraising has long been a drag. Putting together budgets, meeting last minute deadlines, and wondering where your next 6 months of operating capital are coming from are not fun places to be.
Together we can change that. Through aligning strategy and communications, creating plans for diverse funding streams, and aiming to thrive instead of just survive on a shoe-string budeget, we can secure funding for your organization over the long-term.
Fundraising is about building relationships with important key partners. We believe it can, and should be fun for people who aim to create a better world. If random tech entrepreneurs get to have fun raising ridiculous amounts of money, why can't we as committed stewards of our community?

Collaborator Experiences
As a Founder, I often struggle to bridge the gap between big-picture dreams and tactical reality. Enter Interform. Interform has helped break down my long-term vision into achievable 3-4 month sprints, grounding my team at Silvi in action. What's extra special is that Adam doesn't lose sight of the north star, yet is gifted at being able to synthesize priorities for everyone involved.
He's not just a strategy mastermind. Adam brings a rare quality of humanity and connection to the table. This shines through in his exceptional facilitation skills, guiding insightful deep dives and workshops, whether one-on-one or with the entire team.
Without a doubt, Adam is an essential asset for those doing systems change work. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Djimo, founder of Silvi
As someone who's working on a systems change vision that involves both for-profit and non-profit entities, Interform has been an invaluable ally. Working with Interform helped me synthesize my big vision into distinct programs, which then supported me in fundraising for much larger grants. Adam worked with me to clarify the big vision and the core program offerings, and Sandra helped me find larger grants than I had previously thought possible. I feel very supported and excited for whats to come!
Jeremy Chevalier, Founder of Homegrown and Permascaping
Adam has known the exact questions to ask that have supported me in aligning with the way I truly want to work in the world… I have worked with other business coaches, and Adam is the first one who has supported me in a way that has allowed me to become the holistic practitioner I have been envisioning yet unable to achieve on my own. I always feel energized and focused for my next step when we get off a call. I am immensely grateful for our paths crossing and for the opportunity to work with him.
Working with Interform to find grants for our programs delivered what we needed… it gave us the capabilities to bring on somebody and give them a helpful roadmap to start working with immediately
Ryan Slaughbaugh, Founder of Think Regeneration
The Process of Transformation
Every systems change organization is unique, so the specifics of the project are different each time. However, we keep core elements of our process

Connect with collective potential
We start with the roots. Through collaborative workshops and interviews we clarify, energize, and expand your stakeholders perspective of the core mission of your organization. Through these interactions, we surface the unique potential of your organization, in this place, at this moment.

Sense into the future
With rootedness, we expand into the future. We sense into the patterns at work behind our workshops/interviews to expand on your potential for transforming systems. We weave a transformative vision of the future that your organization and the stakeholders who you partner with are uniquely positioned to create together.

Strategize with vision
Rooted in the present with an expansive future in mind, we get tactical. We create a holistic path forward to leveling up your fundraising, communications, and program/product strategy.

Co-create the future
With a transformative strategy, we execute. We create abundant budgets to fundraise for the resources you need to actualize your vision in a space of joy, prosperity, and enoughness. To support these higher levels of fundraising, we create a refined communications system that tells a compelling story of your organizations previous work and future potential.
Instead of working in silos, we practice radical collaboration to not only produce more useful deliverables but also to facilitate a culture of openness and creativity.

Implement and evolve
With an expanded vision, fresh brand, abundant budget, and communication system, we're all ready to take your organization to the next level. We act as your support team as you utilize the new capabilities, connections, and deliverables we created together to actualize your vision for systems transformation.

Our Aim: Improve the Way We Improve Our World
"You can't solve a problem with the same level of thinking that created it"
  • Albert Einstein
We've noticed that many systems change initiatives start with a burning passion, a clear vision, and a lot of energy.
But many fizzle out, fall short of their purpose, or have to compromise between financial gain and social transformation.
We're here to connect the dots so your radical vision of systems change can grow beyond what you envision, in step with your community.
To elevate our work and results, we must elevate how we think.
To this end, we have crafted principles, inspired by the field of Regenerative/Living Systems Thinking pioneered by Carol Sanford that help us stay aligned with our aspirations as we work with you:
Trust collective intelligence
All of your stakeholders hold valuable insight that guides you towards fulfilling your essential purpose. We seek collaboration with the full spectrum of stakeholders frequently to generate an atmosphere of trust, long-term buy-in, and creative outputs that surpasses what everyone expected.
As visionaries who see the unseen, we acknowledge the value in testing our concepts and ideas against the experience of real people and situations. We balance our ability to reach into the unknown for creativity and inspiration with grounding into reality to ensure the things we create have a real impact on real people.
Test ideas against reality with action
Prioritize growth of inner capabilities
We don't just want to grow numbers, or even qualitative outcomes. We seek to grow the inherent capability of all that we work with. Through dialogue, thoughtful questions, and empowering engagements, we want to grow you from the inside out so you and your community continue to thrive long after our project ends.
Everything starts with connecting to the moment here and now. We start our work by uncovering the real potential, limitations, and secret sauce within the teams, communities, and bioregions that we work with. By rooting into the nature, dynamics, and potential of the systems we seek to change, we're able to expand our work to make waves, not ripples.
Expand from rootedness
Lean into connection
The wisdom of life guides us. And in 4.6 billion years on earth, life has shown us one thing - surviving and thriving requires deep connection. We strive to reconnect through our work, bringing people and place closer together through our workshops, collaborative approach, and thoughtful interview design.
