EVOLVE YOUR TEAMS
The foundation of great people and teams is Trust. Your major investments in human capital, processes, and technologies will suffer without trust.
Every ounce and linkage of missing trust in your organization devours productivity through worry, restraint, caution, posturing, subversive behavior, and ultimately fear.
Why wouldn’t your first priority investment be to ensure a rock-solid foundation of trust, so that every possible contribution to innovation and productivity can fearlessly be contributed by all.
Our methodology is based on the latest science, proven military principles, and empathetic, non-judgmental guides.

GUIDED BY EXPERIENCE
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt 1910 speech at The Sorbonne

- Recognize excellence
- Induce “challenge stress”
- Show vulnerability
- Intentionally build relationships
- Facilitate whole-person growth
- Give people discretion in how they do their work
- Share information broadly

His unique research is based on The Neuroscience of Trust. Experiential Leader’s Trust Camp leverages 7 out of 8 of these factors. The 8th factor resides in your workplace… job crafting.
END THE POLITICS... AND THRIVE
Do you enjoy working in cultural chaos? Slogging through a daily dose of...
walking through a minefield of "you can't do/say that!"
tiptoeing around negativity and Passive Aggressives?
avoiding necessary but difficult conversations?
focusing on the selfish, petty needs of your weakest link?
Will that growing elephant in the conference room corner crush you?
When will your fear of doing something exceed your fear of change?
Right NOW you can choose to lead free from cultural paralysis.
