Leadership Development

Remember, experience and apply your wisdom, competence, equilibrium and influence when you are moving in, up, over, down or out.

New Role? New Level? Stuck? In Transition? Pressure To Deliver? Blooming? At a Growth Edge? Seeing Clearly?

Team Performance

Align and unleash the creative energy of your team system when you are strategizing, stuck, just starting or need to get a job done.

New Leader? Changing Membership? Stakes High? Innovating? In Sync? Elephants? Engaged? Productive? Meetings Fun?

Management Effectiveness

Catalyze your managerial capacity, impact and influence when you are starting, growing, operationalizing, at a wall or reinventing.

Disruption challenging? People perplexing? Upleveling? Missing the basics? Executing? Need a boost? Flourishing?

Organizations Served


We are grateful for our long-term affiliation and friendship with Lyndee Berkley of Encyte Solutions LLC, Natarsha Hearn of Natarsha Hearn Group Pty Ltd and Wayne Philippi of Wolf Creek Partners Inc. Whether designing and delivering their programs, ours or hybrids, each brings mastery, passion and proven methodologies in the fields of human potential, leadership development, team systems and organizational performance. And, each is a delight to co-create and work with!

We are also aligned with The Centre for Dynamic Stability.



We bring you many leading-edge tools, resources, practices and frameworks that we have experimented with, applied and adapted over the years. Some are built into programs and others are shared as needed. At times we work with diagnostic tools that raise awareness, reinforce key principles, accelerate learning, illuminate blind spots and map a path forward.

At present, the diagnostics we find most clarifying include The Structural Dynamics Profile from the Kantor Institute, DISC from Extended DISC International, The Leadership Circle 360 Profile from The Leadership Circle and The Team Diagnostic Profile from Team Coaching International.
