What drives us is a passion for truly helping you and your team. We care about developing deep, long-lasting relationships — and as a result of both individual inner work and the powerful team changes that ripple out from that — celebrating alongside you when transformative change occurs.

Our practice is to align teams to an organization’s strategy. We work in partnership with leaders to help teams achieve real outcomes. Having had a professional upbringing in public relations and communications, we both have a bias for effective communication and are passionate about helping teams strengthen collaboration and cooperation.

We bring certified expertise to our integration of various programs and tools to teams, such as: Leadership Circle, Emergenetics, Emergenetics Selection Program, HeartMath, Customer Experience, TKI Conflict Mode Instrument and Brene Brown’s empirically research-based Dare to Lead ™ training program. Based on the needs of the organization and its leaders, we weave together strategic focus with any combination of these programs and other principles such as adult development, mindfulness and energy work. We know that when professionals become more self-aware, they are better able to deepen into their skills and gain leadership capacity, and as a result, build more courageous cultures and more successful organizations.

“To be a part of something great and to make a difference, you’ve got to be willing to take the risk.”
