"You understand us,” our clients tell us time and again. And we do. But we don’t just strive to understand you; we strive to become a part of the very fabric of your organization. We come as collaborative partners, we become friends and we part as family.
There’s no stone-throwing, no judgment, no battling egos. We make these our priorities instead: sincerity, openness, and yes, even a little vulnerability. The result? Working with us is creative, collaborative, and deeply transformative.
Careful – we’re not afraid to kick someone in the butt when needed! Sometimes, the rough spots hold the most opportunity for real growth. We make sure not to gloss over them. We tell you up front: let’s deal with the elephant in the room.
We aren’t the stars: your people are. So when they talk, we listen. We don’t create silly divisions between us and them: yes, we have expertise, but we’re not “above the people.” We know the best ideas can come from anywhere, not just the people standing at the front of the room. Our role, then, is not just to “teach and tell.” Our role is to bring out the untapped wisdom already in the room.
Sure, your leaders can accomplish a lot on their own, but the real magic happens when they work together. We help people make vital connections and foster friendships across silos, departments, divisions, and regions. We forge collaboration across the enterprise because we know this to be true: deep change just doesn’t happen without deep relationships.
During our collaborative design process, we create programs that reflect your strategic objectives, not someone else’s. We don’t just “paste” a program onto a “problem” and hope things work out. We intuit your culture and honor your foundations. We get the best minds in the room. We ask good questions. And we work with the answers we get, even when – especially when – they’re not what we expected.
We don’t think pedestrian HR programs get enough people involved, and they’re just too slow to ignite true change. We design our programs so that the leaders we work with, the critical few, can act quickly to inspire and mobilize the critical mass. Everything they learn, they apply right away – so when the program is finished, the momentum doesn’t fizzle.
True leadership comes from a deep and personal place. So we guide people as they uncover the inner wisdom that will orient them even when everything else falls apart. We help them grow as people first, leaders second. And what we’ve noticed is this: when people experience true growth from within, they lead with passion, heart, and purpose – no matter what may come.
We don’t just customize your program, we allow it to evolve as we go. We believe true learning is unscripted, in the moment. So we respond to what’s actually happening in the room, not what we wished would happen. When your leaders encounter an unexpected detour, we join them for the journey. We pull from all the tools and resources at our disposal so we can offer just the right nugget of insight at just the right moment.
Leaders need developing? Strategic challenges? Upcoming mergers? Global change management programs?
We design programs and workshops that meet you where you are in the moment. We solve critical organizational problems, together. Everything we do is designed with you in mind.
