Why did we begin?

Breaking in to the global workforce is a struggle for many graduates and students. Moving up an organization is a competition for executives. Discovering employee potential for authentic leadership is a challenge for senior leaders.

We identify and provide solutions to develop people to achieve extraordinary outcomes in business and life for reasons that are important to them.

What did we research?

Working with Private Equity and Venture Capital firms across a range of industries enhanced our understanding of complex people dynamics in organizations. We verified these findings by understanding the commonality of the same dynamics in public firms. We identified certain skills which were positively correlated with higher remuneration and global career flexibility. In a fast evolving global jobs market, these skills are "career game changers". Those who have them will flourish in their professions.

Our programs methodically introduce “game changer” skills to participants.
