Far from old-school (and B-School).
We’re not steeped in legacy thought leadership, and we don’t presume overly-complex frameworks will solve your problems. We’re nothing like the consultancies that have influenced much of corporate America—and that’s a good thing.
We don’t believe in waiting to make an impact. Unlike traditional consulting discovery, we find ways to learn about your culture and begin to change it at the same time. We talk to your leaders and push their thinking on the same call. We make sure every ounce of effort is a return on your investment.
Wisdom over white papers.
Academic prowess and expertise isn’t our end goal and it’s never where we start. Unlike the narrow frame often applied by thought leaders with a singular domain, we look at opportunities from a variety of angles and explore every nuance. We come ready with questions, rather than primed with answers. Wisdom comes from experience but also thoughtful humility—we apply both.
Practice, not preaching.
Anyone can tell you what makes a great culture, what drives employee engagement, and best practices for leading change. Information and knowledge are commodities our competitors peddle and academics preach. Our art is putting the science into practice. We create a wide variety of tools and experiences that move leaders and teams beyond awareness to action, from knowing to doing.
Real solutions, not rote sales.
We’re not here to tell you what you want to hear. Our business model isn’t to sell you the pedigree of where we used to work or work we’ve done before. We’re interested in solving your business issues, unlocking real possibilities, and doing work that inspires all of us to be better every day. If we all feel challenged, we’re working.
No mission, just an ambition.
We don’t have a mission to achieve a single outcome. We have an ambition to keep helping leaders like you do work that matters. Whatever it takes, that’s our life’s work.
