About Us

We are in the business of building great organizations.

At the foundation of everything we do is the fundamental belief that business is a powerful vehicle for making the world a better place. No other spheres of influence touch our lives more regularly than our workplaces.

Guiding Tensions

We embrace paradox and reject binary thinking.

Sure, everything exists on a spectrum, but the pitfalls of either/or thinking are significant. We believe that the magic happens when we hold seemingly opposing values in tension.

Authority & Vulnerability

Authority: the capacity for meaningful action.
Vulnerability: exposure to meaningful risk.

02

Ambition & Humility

Ambition: the drive or desire to achieve something.
Humility: a realistic view of one's self.

03

Performance & People

Performance: the outcome of a high functioning team.
People: human beings worthy of dignity, support, and compassion.
