Abraham Lincoln is reported to have said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” There is a hard way and a smart way. Sometimes it takes an outsider to bring in a fresh way of looking at the present task set"

CONSULTATION. WORKSHOPS. COACHING.

We specialize in a discreet and “safe” diagnostics approach. With our consultations, we are always cognizant of the goal to leverage problems for later growth—qualitative and quantitative. This approach also translates to our coaching, which is a private engagement focused on helping ministers, leaders, and executives reach their sweet spot. For group-focused workshops, our method is interactive and inclusive, engaging through exercises such as role-plays, discussion groups, and teaching—no lectures.

Reach out to us with any questions or to tell us your story so we can work with you on finding the best place to start . . .
