Strategic Transformation Consulting

Create the next level of “secret sauce” in your marketplace through people and culture

Our Philosophy

Our consulting engagements give us the honor and opportunity to help you learn, grow, and achieve extraordinary outcomes during rapidly changing times. For us, consulting starts with creating a relationship based on mutual trust, integrity, and respect. From this foundation, our job is to listen with open minds, hearts, and purpose so that we may help you walk your own path to success. How will this occur? By raising provocative questions and challenging paradigms. By supporting your strengths and educating you with the unknowns. By leveraging connections, decades of experience, and buckets of untapped reserves of knowledge. Our work is always customized, always creative, and always evolving so that we can help you use develop both inside-out and outside-in perspectives to achieve your goals in rapidly changing and complex times.

"The purpose of an organization to enable ordinary human beings to do extraordinary things…to make ordinary people perform better than they seem capable of, to bring out whatever strength there is in its members, and to use each person’s strength to help all the people perform."

Engagement Process

What does a typical engagement look like?

While we customize and tailor our approach for each client, we follow a powerful process that integrates continuous learning, linear achievement, and nonlinear transformational leaps.



Most clients come to us with a specific problem or goal. So our work starts with deep listening that allows us to uncover the facts, assumptions, and hypotheses related to your ideas. Oftentimes, this discovery process leads us to deepen our awareness of the goal or problem through more extensive needs assessment steps, including: administering assessments, conducting interviews, reviewing available data and materials, and applying best-practice frameworks. Taking a multiple intelligence approach, we gain a sense of the depth and breadth of the problem and opportunity. We then work with the team to uncover roadblocks, patterns, tensions, and possibilities to chart our path forward.  


Most leaders and companies have to “be bigger” in order to “become more.” In this step, we customize a learning development plan that helps leaders transform their perspectives of the environment, industry forces, competition, internal resources, and strategic success factors as well as and their own management/coaching skills and interpersonal capabilities.  We also learn from customers, partners, and a broad base of leaders and employees throughout your company to gain a broad range of inputs. Simultaneously, we are helping your team develop the inner capabilities to rapidly assimilate data, insights, and creative ideas generated throughout this process.




We view the transformation process as a multi-faceted journey that must weave together both linear and nonlinear strategies and processes to activate your highest levels of innovation and performance. Starting with our redefined core problem and goal, we step left to identify the greater environment and move through identifying strategy, structure, routines and processes, and measures of success. We also step right, dancing with the traditional path to explore the edges of the unknown, capturing culture, re-imagining identity, deepening values and purpose, and accessing heart-based intelligence and the future that is waiting to happen. The overall goal: to re-imagine leadership and success in extraordinary ways in extraordinary times.


Exploration and transformation is nothing without implementation. Implementation is nothing without engagement. In this stage, we help you move the transformation throughout the company, creating a culture of learning, alignment, and performance in departments, teams, and individuals. We help you create your re-imagined strategy, moving from a “buy-in” to an “own-it and leap-from” culture. Richly-customized, we employ  action-learning, active-caring, and action-coaching skills to empower the implementation of your solution.



Renew and regenerate

As we implement, we continue to help our clients renew, regenerate, and transform within ever-changing realities. Our unique blend of experiential facilitation and expert counsel helps clients (throughout all levels of the implementation) to continue to shift their relationship to the problem and grow into the leaders they need to be to ensure its success. Within these relationships, new and powerful solutions and innovations emerge. As people learn to renew and regenerate themselves as valuable leaders within their work, so are they capable of renewing and regenerating the solution in their jobs and work. Our work often often leads to ongoing, regenerative relationships with clients as they face ever-changing times.
