Accelerated Performance Approach
Modern World; Modern Approach
Our agile people-centric approach, make-it-happen mindset, and nimble collaborative partnerships help us go beyond rigid traditional advisory solutions.
We put PEOPLE are the core of our work, both individually and as a team…
digitization & drones are cute, but only ever just tech enablers.
We have a bias for ACTION, launching and iterating; but we never rush...
slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.
We seek IMPACT by accelerating your thinking, actions and results…
either the same results faster, or by ultimately achieving more.
We are AGILE and responsive to what your challenges and goals really are…
our mission: Care. Know. Coach. Grow.
We do everything to bring DATA into play and put experimental insights on the table… analysis enhances experience always, in all ways.
Beliefs & Behaviors
Ability is what you’re capable of doing and motivation determines what you will do.
But it is attitude that determines how well you do it.

We are AGILE & PEOPLE-CENTRIC (we do not work in large teams)
Follow the Two Pizza Rule
We believe if a single team cannot be fed by two pizzas then that team is too large. The reasoning is quite straight forward and basic. More people means more communication, more bureaucracy, more chaos, and more of pretty much everything that slows things down, hence why large organizations are oftentimes pegged as being so inefficient.
In summary, small teams are better than large ones. We fundamentally embrace this small team belief at our very core of who we are and what we do. The science is clear, but still, organizations persist with the mindset that 'bigger is better'. The reality is small teams offer:
Focus – a manager can spend more time with each person on a smaller team as necessary.
Clarity – in a smaller team, everyone has a line of sight on everything. Everyone knows context, successes, failures, and expectations.
Cohesion – smaller teams have a greater chance to be more cohesive. The challenge is they have less redundancy and more failure points.
Administration – you need to recruit, train and bring fewer people up the learning curve, spend less on the administration of the team.
Interaction – you can interact more easily with each individual and gain a sense of their commitment level.
Visibility – since it is harder to “hide” on a small team, you can quickly weed out those who aren’t up to the challenge.
We COACH & CONNECT you (we do not sell large consulting programs)
