Intelligent Collaborative Development that Delivers True Growth and Results
Did you know that the retention of information three days after a development experience is about 10%? And that participants apply only 10% of what they learned once back at work?
Yet, 90% of executive and partner development initiatives are still delivered as instructor-led experiences! Millions of dollars (over $150 billion annually, to be precise*) are spent every year in the US in "learning and development solutions" that fail to truly impact human behavior and fail to deliver sustained growth and business results.
This bothers us. Deeply. Continuous development done right can be so enriching and provides such a unique competitive advantage. We've spent years experimenting with various methodologies and formats, leading us to an evidence-based approach that ties your development investments to your strategy and business impact.
We call it strategic leadership development:
- What changes and external forces are impacting your business or organization?
- What are your strengths in responding to these changes and external forces?
- Where will you need to grow your capabilities to win?
- How will your leaders and workforce need to think, feel and do, individually and as a group, to succeed?
- How will we measure success?
We design and deliver high-impact, bite-sized and cost-effective intelligent executive and partner development solutions to leaders who are too busy and too smart to waste their time not getting their needs met.
We are particularly experienced with the unique challenges and needs of:
- Big Four leaders and partners from all lines of services
- Law firm leaders and partners
- Professional services senior leaders and partners
- R&D from knowledge-intensive sectors (defense, biotech, high tech, aerospace, etc.)
- Tech transfer
- University research labs

- Strategic design of partner/leader retreats
- High-impact small group customized consultation series for leaders/partners motivated to acquire and apply knowledge quickly for tangible results
