learning that makes a difference

Our Approach

Over the years, our work helping leaders, entrepreneurs and teams drive innovation, improve operational efficiencies and spur growth has intersected with coaching and training to improve self-awareness and the ability to navigate conflict within teams.  Our work to understand these patterns has led to the development of Real-Time Awareness™ (RTA™) and Collaborate In Conflict™ (CiC™) – what we believe are core skills necessary for driving meaningful change in organizations.  

Real-Time Awareness™ is the ability to understand the impact you are having on others. Collaborate In Conflict™ is the ability to remain present so that you can continue working and engage with others during periods of discomfort, uncertainty, insecurity and distraction.  Everyone can develop Real-Time Awareness™ to better understand how they are being perceived and received.  They can also learn to Collaborate In Conflict™ to help their team mitigate risk and maximize opportunities for success. We believe these are the core skills needed to drive meaningful, enduring change. 

Together, RTA™ and CiC™ bridge the gap between diversity strategy and a culture of inclusion.  They offer concrete skills and practical solutions for building teams capable of leveraging their full diversity of thought to drive innovation, growth and lasting cultural change. 

All workshops, seminars and training programs are designed to educate, raise awareness, and develop Real-Time Awareness™ and Collaborate In Conflict™ skills.  Those skill are then applied to content in four areas: Inclusive Leadership, Unconscious Bias, Authenticity & Awareness, and Conscious Communications.
