What We Do

  • We are in the business-development business, but perhaps not in the way you might think.
  • We develop leaders, cultures, and teams.
  • We focus on the skills and strategies that lead to meaningful, successful workplace relationships.
  • We get at the heart of what’s important to you, your team, and your organization.
  • We help you harness the passion, skills and wisdom of your team members towards a focused purpose.
  • Through the collective value of your team we help you discover your “adjacent next.”

Our work focuses on three key processes:

First:

IMG_0770We help you build emotionally agile teams and develop emotionally agile leaders. All relationships, including those related to business, are based on emotional connections. Whether you like someone, want to follow someone, believe in someone, or want to do business with someone, your motivations are directly linked to how you feel about that person. Strategy creates the structure of business, but it’s emotional intelligence that binds the structure together in an effective and meaningful way.

Second:

We help you become clear about your purpose. Daniel Pink, the author of Drive, states that we are motivated by three things; autonomy, mastery, and purpose. If the “why” of your business is fuzzy, we facilitate team sessions to bring your horizon line into sharp focus. From there, we work with your team to make sure every function, every role and every goal is aligned with that purpose. We help you create seamless alignment throughout your team so that everyone knows why and how they contribute to the overall purpose of the company.

We help you craft business strategies that achieve the optimal balance between people, planet and profit  — the triple bottom line. Every business invests their resources based on the values they hold dear. Some companies are primarily motivated by profit and pursue a business plan that uses their resources to maximize profit. Some companies are primarily motivated by maintaining good paying jobs for their employees. These companies devote their resources to keeping and rewarding staff. Whatever your industry or purpose, every company arrives at a unique balance between the competing priorities of people, planet and profit. We help you arrive at what is your unique balance.
