Our Approach

Our work with clients provides an expeditious route to change, at a deep level, for transformational growth. We specialize in developmental coaching, helping clients achieve adaptive goals, real growth and sustainable change. Clients expand their leadership capacity, mental complexity, and discover new perspectives that not only drive business results but unexpectedly enhance other areas of their life.

The approach we most rely on for profound and expedient results is Immunity to Change (ITC). Based in adult development theory and developed by Robert Kegan, Ph.D. and Lisa Lahey Ed.D. of Harvard University. ITC is used across industries as a highly effective method to get at the root of deeply held beliefs that serve a purpose but prevent change. Clients quickly surface hidden beliefs and barriers to change and begin to be able to see and evaluate them, discovering new perspectives, and generating options and choices that were previously unavailable while unknowingly subject to these beliefs.

We work with leaders, teams and groups to achieve individual or collective goals. Because each person and organization is unique, our approach is customized for every client, using the tools and assessments necessary to quickly get to the heart of the problem and get on track toward success.
