Are you tired, frustrated, or stuck?

Most people will exhaust the go-to strategy of thinking smarter and working harder manage the overwhelming demands and complexities life and leadership. Denial, Distraction, and Determination become the managers and mediators we use to survive.


Ignorance and denial can feel like bliss, temporarily soothing us from the painful realities of a beautifully complicated life.


Activity keeps us busy and distracted from the deeper anxiety and complexity that stirs and brews below the surface.


Iron-willed determination becomes an aggressive voice demanding that you work harder, faster, and longer than anyone, anytime, all the time.

The greatest need in our culture today is for high capacity leaders and teams to become transformational in their work.

It is common for leaders and teams to get stuck or experience resistance when trying to cross over into bold new levels of growth. To compensate, people may begin to hide, over function, or detach. By working at the intersection of the leader’s development and their contexts, we develop experiences, resources, and consulting opportunities to guide and nurture their capacity, connection, courage, and character.
