Combined, we spent over three decades in your shoes—working in a variety of roles and organizations. Most of those years were focused on developing leaders and teams at Hewlett Packard and The Boeing Company. Developing leaders and teams is still our passion. Our purpose, however, has grown—we feel inspired to take what we've learned and share it with as many organizations, leaders, and teams as possible. So we left our comfortable corporate jobs and are wholeheartedly following our passion and purpose.




We are on a mission to transform the way people feel about work and the way work thinks about people.



We believe people strategy connects directly to business results. Great leaders inspire engaged employees. Engaged employees create high–performing teams. High–performing teams drive strong business performance. And strong business performance attracts great leaders and employees.
