ABOUT US

We are entrepreneurs, family business owners, psychologists, sociologists, theologians, theoretical and working academics who have a long track record of facilitating profound growth in people and organizations.

We work with leaders of influence—providing a solid foothold from which they move their world. To envision. To disrupt. To catalyze. To create new enterprises, and perhaps a new world.

We believe:

That you have intrinsic value, a unique design, and a vocation to be lived

That your essence is a desire for meaning and a drive to work for a better life

That every individual has a calling…because there is a Caller

That community provides the field in which you can grow

That intellectual capacity, commitment of will, and a spiritual curiosity are your catalysts for growth

That you can help heal the world

As an oak tree emerges from every acorn, so each person bears a uniqueness that asks to be lived and is waiting to be lived.
