Actionable Values

This short list of simple rules guides how we engage with our clients, associates and collaborators.  


Teach and learn in every interaction

We carry a stance of learning and inquiry which enables us and those we partner with to continually expand our capacity to co-create desired results.

Attend to the whole, the part, and the greater whole

We pay attention to multiple levels of scale – the individuals, their teams, and the larger enterprise, as well as the interplay between them.

Give and get value for value

We design engagements with an eye for mutual benefit and reciprocity.

Search for the true and the useful

We focus on what it true, with full recognition that truth is complex and multi-faceted depending upon where you stand. We focus on what is useful so that whatever we create has the greatest likelihood of providing high value for its users.

Engage in joyful practice

We have a respected reputation for helping those we work with find joy and connection even in the midst of tackling difficult and serious issues

Share our story

We value story as a powerful resource for change.
