We begin every engagement by learning about the organization’s priorities, people, processes, and culture. This whole-workplace approach is based on our 17 years working with 100+ organizations.


Straight Talk

The field of workplace improvement is full of buzzwords, jargon, acronyms, and confusing terminology – and improvement practitioners can sometimes make everything more complex than it needs to be.

We opt for plain English and straightforward clarity. In working with clients, leading workshops, and delivering keynotes, we heed these wise words from Albert Einstein: Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
