Healthy organizations don’t just happen.  They require reflection, analyses and the courage to thoughtfully grow. We can help you do that by acting as a guide and a partner. 


We offer tools to help leaders create thriving organizations. We provide customized training workshops and can support your conferences through keynote speaking and by leading breakout sessions. 

Human Resources

We help you build your greatest asset – your people.  We will work with you to both uncover your human resource challenges and engage your employees in improving your organization. 



The servant-leadership model guides the way we lead and manage.


The servant-leader is servant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. The best test is: do those served grow as persons: do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society; will they benefit, or, at least, not be further deprived?
-Robert K. Greenleaf


“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
