One does not climb to attain enlightenment.

Rather, one climbs because

they are enlightened.

Executive Coaching 

No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied – it speaks in silence to the very core of your being.                                                                                  

        - Ansel Adams

Discreetly cultivating leaders that are worth following.

Accomplished professionals like you are rarely questioned, challenged or encouraged to change and grow. At some point however, a large granite mountain appears that cannot be denied; it speaks to the core of your being and invites you to become more.

In a supportive yet challenging relationship, we use assessments, dialogue, assignments and feedback to devise a personal action plan that aids your quest toward exemplary leadership. Success begins with listening to your mountain and summoning the courage to climb higher.

Emerging Leaders  Learn tools and skills that facilitate your successful transition to your new role, while  avoiding typical missteps of new leaders. 

Established Leaders  Invest in renewing and revitalizing your leadership skills. Give yourself permission and space to pause, reflect and  conquer complacence that can result from a track record of success and unchallenged power.

 
Strategy  Formulation

Strategy is about deliberately choosing to be different.
