About Us

Expand What's Possible

Kadabra is an interdisciplinary team of leadership and culture experts on a mission to grow exceptional leaders and teams. Our aim? To facilitate an unprecedented surge of positive change, beginning in and around every organization we serve.

We help people do the hard inner work required to become better leaders. We support them to dissolve fear, expand awareness, and explore assumptions. We empower them – no matter their personality or style – to transform their thinking, awaken their potential, and lead with incredible skill and confidence. Because of this, we facilitate teams and divisions to become more than the sum of their parts. The organizations we serve turn into powerful forces for good in the world.

We serve a strategic ambassador – usually a “people person” with titles such as Chief People Officer, SVP of Human Resources, Head of Diversity and Inclusion, or CEO – who want to help their leaders heighten awareness, raise influence, increase impact, and build a more inclusive culture that aligns with their values. We work with values-driven organizations across all industry sectors with a “higher purpose” who aim to cultivate consciousness throughout their entire ecosystem and use their businesses as forces for good. They embrace the “triple bottom line” movement, or aspire to journey there. They are experiencing an inflection point of growth and/or transition, and are looking to affect positive change and cultural transformation.
