Inspire & Align for Ambitious Goals

We work with boards, leadership teams, & (mega)projects to clarify purpose, planning & preparation, everyday practices, and performance. This alignment work also builds bridges between Sales & Customer Service, Maintenance & Operations, generations, or wherever perspectives and agendas vary.

Digital Learning for Alignment at Scale

We work with you to craft dynamic learning & communication programs tailored to your needs. Need to re-work your existing learning programs into memorable experiences that drive strategic goals? We build custom programming -- internal podcasts, digital learning, and hybrid virtual + face-to-face events.

Develop Leaders for Transformation

When you adopt inspiring common leadership philosophies and practices across your organization at every leadership level, creating and meeting audacious goals becomes possible and easier. We help you create shared understanding and community to fuel your unique vision.

Who will your leaders need to be?

Custom-designed coaching and wellness programs help high performance leaders maintain readiness & resilience, and are especially important in times of uncertainty, growth, or change. We call upon multiple qualifications to design & deliver the right approach for you.

Navigate Global Megatrends

Transformation

Clarify purpose, vision, and action to increase agility and success rates with transformation and innovation.

Strategic Alignment

How are you different from other consulting firms we’ve worked with?

We don’t just deliver recommendations, we actually do some of the leadership heavy lifting; we partner, we get to know your people, and help you lead over time and even with thousands of leaders. We help you do the leadership work. We combine the best research, methodologies, and frameworks to help you exceed your current mindset and goals.

We base our work on a unique, trademarked model; it allows us to help you see your organization from a more holistic perspective, allowing you to address multiple issues or challenges at once & prepare for opportunities faster and easier.

In a June 2020 Harvard Business Review article on physicians during a COVID surge, author Jessica Israel wrote, they “didn’t necessarily want advice as much as they needed hands-on help — or virtual hands-on help in this case – especially when it came to communicating.” That’s what we often see with clients – they’re busy and working in changing environments; they don’t always need recommendations or a single kind of workshop, they need sustained, hands-on support to get people focused on what’s most important and working together toward ambitious goals.

I just want to buy a two-day workshop. What do you actually offer?

First, we understand 100%  that what you really want is not just to purchase a 2-day workshop. You want people to learn, communicate, or behave differently. You hope to change mindsets, habits, and structures — to accomplish big things with and through your people.

We make the transformation you hope to achieve clearer, faster & easier by figuring out what it will take given your current circumstances, then we build custom programming based on the strengths and gaps in your culture, knowledge, or current practices.

Here some examples of recent programs.

Where do you work?

Our leadership team and affiliates are 100% remote and have worked with clients on five continents. Our HQ is in Switzerland; we work primarily in Europe and the Middle East. Due to social distancing, most of our work is currently online; we deliver a variety of virtual and digital programming options depending on your needs.

This is exactly what we needed.

Roger O., VP North America

This was my 4th project in Algeria. Previous projects took more than double the time planned; on this project we’re ahead of schedule because of the quality of relationships we’ve built within the senior leadership team and between all the sub-contractors. This has been the biggest benefit from our work.
