Building the business you’ve always dreamed of leading.
Organizational health starts with the decision makers.
Every organization has A, B, and C players.
Behaviors are what we do and how we act.
If culture is the heart and soul of an organization, strategy is the bone and the muscle.
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: exercising decision-making power on behalf of the organization
Vulnerability: engaging interpersonal and organizational uncertainty
Ambition & Humility
Ambition: the drive to improve and achieve meaningful outcomes
Humility: the accurate assessment of one’s abilities and limitations in a given context
Performance & People
Performance: formal and informal systems through which success is expected and rewarded
People: formal and informal systems through which individuals feel seen and supported
Focus & Flexibility
Focus: fixed clarity about where an organization is going and how to get there
Flexibility: the ability of an organization to adapt to real time challenges and opportunities
In entrepreneurship, defeats of this nature are a foregone conclusion and failing is a way of everyday life. In preparation for starting a private equity business years later, I read every book I could find, to brace myself for the failure that awaited me.

The Accidental Entrepreneur
Even though I played the part, there was always a mismatch between me and the traditional business landscape.
