Our vision and values

The Big Lil envisions a world where all social enterprises have the tools and capacity they need to succeed, driven by teams who feel connected to and sustained by their work.

  • We build a collective experience: We believe that the best work is done when people come together from different backgrounds and perspectives. We are committed to creating workplaces where everyone feels welcome, valued, and heard.

  • We focus on better not (necessarily) bigger: We believe that quality is more important than quantity, when it comes to building sustainable businesses and nonprofits. We are committed to doing the best work we can, even if it means saying no to projects that are not a good fit for us.

  • We move to action: We believe that there is no time to waste. We are committed to taking action and making a difference in the world.

  • We design for autonomy and joy: We believe that people are most productive when they are given the freedom to do their best work. We are committed to creating a workplace where people feel empowered to take risks and make decisions.

  • We partner with empathy and respect: Leadership is lonely and organizational design/change management is hard work. We show up with compassion, sensitivity and deep understanding. We work in partnership with our clients and their teams; we don't assume we know best; and we take a systems view to understand the systemic levers at our disposal, to help good organizations become great.
