Leadership development and coaching have been the core of our firm from the beginning. We work with organizations committed to developing talent and strategies to build great teams and strengthen business. Our team brings wonderfully diverse backgrounds and accomplishments from large corporate settings to entrepreneurial ventures. Our clients value purpose yet understand the importance of profit.

Over the past 13 years Lori Heffelfinger, founder of our company, has been building a consulting practice to help leaders thrive in a world where the pace of change exceeds the speed of light. Our clients see her as a “Leader in the Development of Leaders”.

We live and value authenticity and natural curiosity so that we can illuminate transparency for the client and their teams. We find and bring to light solutions (in the client/organization) that cannot easily be seen, but once discovered are transformative to the individual or leadership team and not overly difficult to implement with a bit of courage.

We value substance over form and bring to leaders practical applications and the ability to execute the best and most current leadership practices. We often hear feedback that includes adjectives such as creative, non-judgmental, a solution seeker, and brings current thinking to leadership with a balanced point of view. One of our clients recently said we "caught Lightning in a Bottle!"

Organization and Leadership work excites us. We are dedicated to helping good leaders become great. This is a time of evolution in business where the stakes are high. Our goal is to work closely with our clients to create the safety that allows for experimentation, change, risk taking, and transformation for themselves, their teams and organizations. Our consultants understand this and embrace growth and experimentation as well. At the end of the day, we all want to make great organizations better! Simply put, we strive for and delight in the adventure of improving performance.
