Our Story

During our 18+ combined years in consulting, we observed teams getting stuck for a variety of reasons. Naturally, people set up meetings to discuss the perceived problem. However, traditional meetings often didn’t achieve desired outcomes, especially when faced with complex, open-ended challenges. The result was the need for another meeting, which created an endless cycle.

 

We are curious people who love to investigate pain points, identify patterns, and organize information to drive action, and we knew there had to be a better way. Using skills we learned from Design Thinking and Agile certifications, we developed and facilitated new types of collaborative and inclusive workshops to get teams moving again. We loved seeing the successful results of these sessions. This is why we started Thinkly Solutions, a women-owned business focused on transforming traditional ways of working! In addition to designing and facilitating workshops, we also now offer other services like training and meeting revamp to help teams collaborate better in general.

We hope you’ll trust us to transform your meetings, reignite stalled projects, and generate new ideas...all in a collaborative and inclusive environment.

What people say

Image by Alexander Grey

"I've gotten to see Caitlin lead design sessions with her clients virtually. During the pandemic, I've had to sit through a fair share of virtual design sessions that have missed the mark. Caitlin was so prepared and adept at leading a virtual session, that all topics were given appropriate time and engagement was strong."

"Seema and Caitlin helped me better understand my team’s needs. Our sessions with them allowed the team to freely share what was working for them and what could be even better. We were able to uncover a number of simple, actionable items to make the environment more conducive to productive and creative work. Taking action on the “even better ifs” made our team feel heard and valued."

"Seema took one of the most difficult challenges of completely remote work - holding design thinking sessions - and turned it into a major skill of hers. I looked forward to meetings that Seema ran because I knew they would be a breath of fresh air due to their effectiveness, pace, and organization."
