What Our Clients Say

We serve a wide range of clients, whether they are a start-up team in Silicon Valley, Seattle or Boston,

a medium-sized enterprise in Germany or Japan or a large company with a global presence.

We typically start consulting a core team and key stakeholders and expand internal client efforts from there,

growing skills and alliances for sustainable transformation.

Why Us

From our own personal experience as family members, employees, managers, executives and consultants we know firsthand how hard it is to change.

 

There are more failures than success stories in the history of recorded change management initiatives, It is usually not the technology or another procedure that fails us. Humankind’s resistance to change is the true challenge for all of us, and there is no real blueprint for a comfortable solution.

 

However, we do know a few “tricks” that have proved to work in the past. These techniques will empower you, your team and your organization to overcome challenges, while training everyone to become agile and accepting of change.

 

Will your organization, at this very moment, enthusiastically embrace the next inevitable transformation? Most likely not!

 

Change, especially in a business environment, often makes people to feel uncomfortable and unsafe. As a result we tend to hold on to the current pattern, wait for instructions from managers, resist new ideas and sometimes even sabotage initiatives through passive-aggressive behavior.

 

We give people the skills needed to not just deal with change, but learn and grow from it. We facilitate and coach the organization through its transformation, much in the way that a sports coach prepares a team that has never experienced the playoffs.

 

It’s a road we have traveled before. Our experience is your success.
