Our Clients Share These Universal Challenges:

  • What's necessary to get more engagement?
  • How can we become a more pro-active team?
  • I want to be a more effective, inspiring leader.
  • How can we better work to our full potential?
  • I want everyone heading in the same direction.
  • We need more sustainable results.

We Believe

  • Every Leader has the capacity to choose and create the organization, business, or team they want. 
  • As Leaders, when we access the information in our heart (passion, values) and gut (intuition) as much as we use the information in our heads (technical solutions, data), we connect with parts of ourselves that can bring big, lasting change to ourselves and those we lead. 
  • Genuine curiosity about ourselves and those we lead is a way of being that can change the world.
  •  We all have unique leadership capacities and strengths, and it is our responsibility to bring these gifts to the world.

Facilitated a day-long leadership team alignment workshop, “Creating Trust for Conversations that Matter,” as part of this group's annual two-day strategic planning gathering. We used a highly interactive and experiential program to create a safe space for NHCADSV Executive Directors and leaders to be with each other in a deeper, more authentic way than is usually available to them in their everyday relationships with each other, their boards, their staff, and the clients they serve. Leaders reported an appreciation for being able to build bridges of trust across shared values and stories.  These enhanced connections enhanced the productivity of the strategic conversations that took place during day two of their gathering.
