Our Value Proposition
Organizations and communities are attempting to thrive in a world where they are confronted with a flurry of problems and possibilities. They are two sides of the same coin. We believe that the side you focus on is the side you get: If you focus on problems you will get more problems. If you focus on possibilities you will get more possibilities. Our value proposition is our passion to provide solutions that move organizations and communities into possibility based thinking.

"Give people fish, you feed them for the day. Teach people to fish, they feed themselves for a lifetime."
Consider a school of fish. Like an agile organization, the school moves nimbly through the water. They shift, dodge, and dart in a variety of directions, as if they were of one mind. Today's mandate for organizational leaders is creating organizations that can 1) address the problems - the unexpected shark that enters the waters; and 2) move in the direction of new possibilities that may be around the corner, but not yet in our direct view.
"I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it has been." - Wayne Gretsky
Some might argue that this quote is cliche and unrealistic. Yet, we propose that anticipating the future and adjusting in real time to new information is a core competency of high performing organizations and communities. They innovate, execute, re-innovate, and re-execute seamlessly. This 'triple loop learning' - the kind of learning that leads to transformative change - is considered chaotic and too stressful for low performing organizations. High performing organizations thrive on this pressure and use it to their advantage as they considered it necessary in order to stay on the leading edge. We want to help your organization find and sustain this type of learning.
