what WE CAN DO FOR YOU

Whether you are having a small meeting, micro-event, large conference or something in between, let us energize your attendees with real world lessons about leadership.

Drawing from decades of encounters with individuals, teams and organizations, we speak in stories about the ups and downs of leading people.

We’ve seen what works and what doesn’t work, and we bottom line it for participants. No fluff, no high-minded theories of the case. Just the truth on the ground about how leaders succeed.

If you’re looking for a guest speaker on a range of topics from building a robust & diverse talent pipeline to growing younger leaders, to improving workplace culture, let's connect.

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll groan. And you’ll walk away with pragmatic, actionable guidance.

If you are interested in learning more, we’d love to speak to you.

What we can talk about

Speaking Topics Include

How to get the most value from a multi-generational work environment

From peer to boss: making a successful transition

The secrets to building a kickass team

The truth about culture and how to fix it

How to move up when you’re not a member of the dominant group

It all comes down to productive dialogues

Self-awareness is the most potent leadership habit

Why Us

We wrote this book because we saw a need to fill the gap between what is taught in the classroom and what happens in real life experiences. What we observed boils down to three truths about effective leaders.

  • They have deep self-awareness and do the hard work of personal growth
  • They understand human beings: emotions, thought patterns, motivations
  • They connect in meaningful ways with others and invest in those relationships

This work is messy and difficult and it feels vulnerable and uncomfortable. This means lots of tough conversations with yourself and with others. This is our sweet spot; helping people open up and grow beyond their carefully constructed safe bubbles. And we have strong results to show for our efforts. High functioning teams, cohesive leadership at the top, more equitable and inclusive cultures, non-dominant individuals ascending, bad apples being shown the door.

We’d love to break this down for your participants.
