Our RAISE philosophy invests in

Resilient Leadership

Great leadership is marked by acceptance of change, a thirst for tackling challenges, and a deep focus on the effectiveness of people.

Amplifying Individuals

Great leaders and environments collaborate to bring out people’s best and help them grow into far more than they realized they could be.

Investing in Teams

We need to build teams on a foundation of trust, accountability, and decision-making guidelines. Then give them the autonomy to do great things.

Striving for Greatness

When staff feel empowered and understand their part in meeting a goal that is bigger than themselves, they are inspired to do their best.

Evolving Rapidly

As we learn, we can notice the changes happening to the underlying market and organization and evolve along with them to stay successful.

Our Work

We help purpose-driven leaders build better companies that can fully serve their bigger purpose. We use a combination of proven off-the-shelf methodologies married with just the right amount of customization, so it fits your organization. We believe in the power of leaders to create the right conditions for human flourishing and the power of teams to deliver unprecedented results.

Support Leaders’ Growth

We work with leaders who understand what matters most and what they are here to do. Our goal is to help create transformative leaders who recognize and nurture greatness in others, help members of their teams do work that matters, and foster deep and lasting relationships for themselves and others.

Team Design

We subscribe to the brilliant research of Ruth Wageman and Richard Hackman (Harvard) and what they define as the 6 essential conditions of a successful team. Rooted in these collaborative practices and shared commitment, we unlock your team’s ability to collaborate effectively, fail fast, get results, and be happy.

Organizational Design

We bring the future of work into the present through a practical and minimalist approach to organizational design and process using the latest thinking from agile, lean, and responsive practices. We uncover the right balance of structure vs. autonomy is crucial and help to implement it into your organizational structure.
We work with talented leaders who seek to be stronger. The impact of a leader’s growth ripples throughout the organization, nurturing bigger contributions by team members and fostering relationships that survive the tough times and thrive in the good ones. We focus on developing both interpersonal and best leadership practices.
We help you focus on what is most important. With a nearly endless amount of business issues and opportunities constantly nagging at you, how do you focus on which ones are the most critical and impactful? We’ve developed and tested an assessment that supports this crucial prioritization. By leveraging it, you get clarity on where to focus, a fresh perspective on existing options, and a thoughtful process for moving your business forward.
Sales are the lifeblood of a business. However, when growth stagnates, it is hard to tell if it’s because of poor product/market fit, poor strategy, or poor execution. We help you understand what is holding back your sales and what you need to re-invigorate growth.
Strategies that feel right motivate participation and get accomplished. Plans that align with your organizational values and are clearly defined in steps or phases seem more realistic and more energizing. We facilitate your strategic planning initiative and help you connect your organization’s goals with the most viable future reality.
