About You

Let's face it. You've got a WHOPPER of a problem.      Perhaps you or your organization must:

Innovate the Future

Change (When

Change is Hard)

Stand Out

from the Crowd


Institutional Culture


Income & Impact

Build Consensus

Promote Your Idea

Move from

Success to Significance

Get Something Done

Stop the pain


So you build a problem-solving community that dives in valiantly. 

But solutions are underwhelming, a far cry from the bold visioning required. Proposals feel oddly

familiar--repackaged status quo with minor surface tweaks. 

Worse yet, your team is at odds. Competing priorities and a lack of focus mean conversation

leaps unpredictably, possibly landing in paralysis. 

What should you do?
