Wisdom resides within the client organization

Clients contribute their knowledge of  their industry, of what has worked in the past and what hasn’t. They contribute energy and intuition about the future, and they contribute their familiarity with each other. We draw these out.

Working your plan can and should be engaging and enjoyable

An experience that people remember as productive, fun and full of personal as well as professional growth is a good investment of time and energy.

People grow and renew, organizations don’t do it on their own

Organization renewal is not a passive activity. Our “inside-out” strategy is founded on our belief that individuals can best engage in leading organizations when they simultaneously engage in leading themselves.

People’s energy is engaged by a clear and tangible payoff and/or a compelling, urgent need

If participants feel strongly about the benefits of a meeting there is a high chance of buy-in and accountability for success.
For real change clients must engage a critical mass of dedicated and competent change leaders

Successful projects cannot be “force fed” by a few interested persons, however strongly they believe it is necessary

The necessary momentum will only gather when enough people begin to devote their energy and attention to the desired future state.

Good chemistry can and will release the magic of a consulting relationship

Meetings are about relationships. We enter into honest, caring, success driven relationships and value the privilege of becoming part of a client’s team.
