Done-With-You (DWY) services represent a synergistic approach to consultancy and professional guidance, distinct in the way that they create a partnership between the service provider and the client. This collaborative method involves the provider working side-by-side with the client throughout a project’s journey, offering not just expertise but also active support on demand. Common in fields like consulting, coaching, and education, the main objective of DWY services is to enable clients to engage dynamically in the work process, gaining not only insight but also hands-on experience under the tutelage of a seasoned professional.
Through this process, clients are not passive recipients but rather active contributors, learning new skills and gaining a comprehensive understanding of the methodologies being employed.
A Catalyst member may come in knowing they need a new logo for their business, their product or service. We might start ideating on Monday, looking at logos they like, the audience they want to reach and the brands they are already buying from, the symbolism in the product or even the over all feeling the member wants.
Thursday they might come back into the Workroom with specific symbols or a font they like and we put together the logo together in the Workroom with the Expert Designer sharing their Adobe Illustrator in the room and the logo is put together right then.
By the following Monday, the final changes are made and the logo is packaged up for the Member to use.
It’s not an immediate project fulfillment but creativity needs some time to “soak in.” Sometimes the client may want to drive the design. In that case, the Expert Designer might act more like a co-pilot role, guiding them through each phase and equipping them with the tools and knowledge to eventually take the lead.
This model thereby nurtures both confidence and competency, as clients gradually assume more responsibility, and ideally, achieve a level of expertise and self-sufficiency in the domain being addressed.
