About

Our purpose is to help amplify the performance of your people – and the "soul" of your company culture.

2/3
of U.S. Employees

According to Gallup, ​over two-thirds of employees are either disengaged or actively disengaged at work.

And that figure has barely budged in more than a decade.

Your business has a soul. And that’s not "HR" talk. It’s serious business. 

When soul is cultivated, business success follows.

A bit about our backgrounds and why we are "un-consultants"

Backed by decades of collective senior level HR & business experience, we have worked with diverse groups of clients – globally and domestically – from executives to front line employees–  offering practical HR solutions with impact. 

As HR experts that understand the importance of your ROI, we work with measurable goals that align with your specific business strategies.

We have tackled projects that have taken us into nearly every industry, including:

Healthcare

Financial Services

Insurance

Automotive

Manufacturing

Distribution

Media Advertising

Technology

Retail

Consumer Product Goods

Engineering

Market Research

Higher Education

Government

Non-Profit

We believe too many consultants create dependence on their services, focus on selling "off the shelf" solutions and are not fully invested in their client's success.

We believe there is a better way.  We develop a real, and personal relationship that allows us to become more than just consultants. 

We become partners in your success.  "Un-consultants" is a badge we wear with pride.

At the end of the day, our purpose is to amplify the soul in your business

What is this talk about soul?

Enough about our backgrounds....let's talk about the soul of your people and culture.

By definition, soul is, "The principle of life, feeling, thought and actions in people.”

“Soul” is that spark certain teams & organizations have the moment you meet them. 

But, in order to develop your business’s soul, you need to engage your people. Something that, according to Gallup, says hasn’t been done well in over a decade.

We believe it doesn't have to be this way. 

We are on a mission to change this.  It's what drives us everyday.

Divisional Vice President (CMO)

Andrea and I worked together to open Mexico and Australia. The highest professional compliment that I can pay Andrea is when she would leave one of the markets – GM's would automatically ask her "when are you coming back." At HQ's she had the same impact – always being available as a strategic partner to the business.

Paul has great experience as both an HR generalist and as a talent/OD specialist. And, because he has both, tends to be very good as a generalist (because he gets talent and development) and as an OD specialist (because he understands HR). Paul is smart, fun, thoughtful, practical and strives to drive business results and performance.
