We offer an innovative and highly customized blend of coaching, facilitation and training.

We draw knowledge, inspiration and best practices from behavioral psychology, neuroscience, organizational improv, playback theater, design thinking and the craft of facilitation.

For each module, we develop a strategic sequence of useful content, interactive activities and engaging games to create the maximum impact in the least amount of time. We use the best principles from experience design to turn information into experiential learning.

We bring humor and lightness to our training because we know that learning is sticky when it's fun (and the science agrees).
