Our consulting services are based on established behavioral science - not on the latest fads or trends.

Although we employ advanced psychological tools and techniques, we're committed to assisting you in a straightforward business-friendly manner. 


We work with small to mid-sized companies and organizations, individual professionals, and owners of privately held businesses.

How Our Firm Is Different


We believe that individuals can change, but the most substantive and sustainable growth occurs when people develop from the inside out.  Change has to start from within, beginning with self awareness - an elusive element at best.  By analogy, you can do an acceptable job of combing your hair while looking out of the window - but chances are you'll achieve better results by using a mirror. Self awareness is critical because it allows a person to emphasize productive traits and behaviors, while self-managing the counterproductive ones.

We dislike "consultant-speak" just as much as you do and so we promise to clearly say what we mean and mean what we say.

We understand that time is money and we recognize that far too many consulting projects use up way too much of both.  Whenever possible we look for ways to offer an incremental approach, using the least costly tools that will get the job done.  That said, we also don't believe in quick fixes - not when it comes to people - and we won't water down a project to the point that it has no chance of succeeding.  Our strategy is to target our services as efficiently and effectively as possible.  

Our Core Values


  • Offer people an experience that helps them develop and succeed

  • Treat others fairly and with respect

  • Details matter; so do ethics and professionalism

  • Be responsive and responsible
