THE Listen4Good approach

Feedback isn’t a straight line, it’s a circle.

Listen4Good looks at client feedback as a self-reinforcing loop. We support nonprofits in building sustainable systems, characterized by a continuous cycle of honest input and thoughtful response with their clients. In turn, this leads to more inclusive practices and more authentic client partnerships.

A system built with people in mind.

A systemic approach to feedback is what we believe leads to greater trust, deeper and more equitable client relationships, and real organizational change—with impact that can be seen and felt by everyone involved.

The Listen4Good feedback loop cycles through five key steps.
