Our Impact

Here’s how our client’s feel while working with Doug:

     "Reaffirmed. Refreshed. Reassured."         


               “I feel extremely motivated and pumped up.”

  • I never believed in consultants who come in and tell you what they think you should do. The problem with consultants who come in and hand you a book with what they think you should do and how to do it and then go away is, the organization has reflex memory. I believe in consultants who come in, work with you, learn your business and act as your advisor, and that’s really what Throwing Words does. Doug solves the problem with you. The way we’re trying to do it, with the help of Throwing Words and Doug Bacon, is to make these organizational changes permanent, irreversible. That takes lots of people believing this culture is theirs.

  • In the middle of this pandemic, most of the people in my industry have been working non-stop. That means they don’t have the time and space to be “present” in their roles as needed. Bandwidth is preventing opportunities for our team to gather in spaces where we can actively listen, or receive constructive feedback, or dedicate time to matters that have high degrees of priority, but a lesser degree of urgency. Doug helps me to create ways to communicate with my team, especially in those instances where my headspace won’t allow me to do so.

  • Doug knows me and he's the one person that can "call me out" when I'm hiding something from myself.

  • Doug keeps me on track. He helps me recognize my needs; he helps me to identify my objectives, and determine the outcomes I’m hoping for.
