We work closely and collaboratively with organizations to identify their preferred outcomes, shared purpose and values.
We help teams transform these visions and ideas into practical strategies and tactics for continuous organizational improvement.
Our research and evaluation projects are intensely focused on simple, practical and cost-effective solutions for increasing employee engagement, identifying preferred outcomes and contributing to efficient and effective operations.
We embrace a “utilization focused evaluation” approach to ensure that, above all else, research and evaluation efforts are aimed at being useful for the team and the clients being served.
We help you get over the hurdle of taking a good idea off of the napkin, onto the whiteboard and out into the world.
We train teams to design, test and ship their ideas in record time, helping you accomplish your goals in months instead of years.
Speaking & Facilitation
Leadership. Wellness. Employee Engagement. Innovation. Mental Health & Addiction. Power. Communication.
We speak and facilitate on a wide range of topics in a wide variety of settings, from international conferences to small teams in the boardroom, from the classroom to (occasionally) around the campfire.
Designed to provide optimal learning and practical strategies, our leadership modules are simple, practical, impactful and immediately operational.
Designed for every level of management, we give your leaders the knowledge and skills to enhance employee engagement and improve performance across the organization.
Our “7 Functions of a Highly Effective Leader” framework is grounded in decades of research and has practical application for anyone tasked with leading people.
Our Right Use of Power training provides your team with a deep understanding of power dynamics within your organization and with your clients. We help your people address common, and often unintended or accidental, ‘misuses and abuses’ of power.
Feedback. Self-Awareness. Role Clarity. Practical Ethics. Communication. Conflict Transformation.
Right Use of Power training is consistently described as ‘transformational’ for individuals, teams and organizations.
Communication is a vital component of high-functioning teams, and an area that a lot of teams struggle with. The type of communication we’re talking about is the real stuff, the kind of communication that deepens trust, builds relationships, provides useful feedback, disagrees respectfully…in short, the type of communication that helps drive your team towards excellence.
Our Communication & Conflict Transformation training is an essential building block for your high performing team.

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what others are saying.
I see the work we have done with Jeff as a springboard that will allow us as a staff to engage in professional dialogue at a deeper level because we have developed the trust and understanding necessary to look critically at our work and have candid conversations about teaching and learning.
He’s a transformational leader and a visionary. I would highly recommend Jeff’s work to anyone.
The information you both engraved on us had so many applications that I am already using some methods of position of power with parents and teachers while also respecting what motivates and drives our teachers to allow them to feel more fulfilled and engaged in the pedagogical practice.
Your presentation styles worked very well in keeping me informed and fully engaged. I have already started recommending this program to others in my educational leadership field.
