Leading change from the inside out

We believe that real transformation begins with each of us individually and that every individual has the power to lead and inspire change. We are more powerful when we take collaborative action and we are ready to co-create a world that works for us all.

A new story

We see a new world and a new story developing around us. We see it in people choosing careers based on purpose, establishing sustainable businesses and embracing new ways of working and organizing. We see it in the shift towards more conscious and authentic leadership, self-organisation and more collaborative approaches to addressing our complex global challenges.

What we do

Through our services and community, we support more authentic and conscious ways of working, collaborating and leading. We empower people, teams and organisations to lead change from the inside out.

Program Design

We specialize in designing personal, leadership and team development programs which guide groups on a journey of insight, reflection and action.


We offer workshops on a range of topics around leadership and self-organisation, aimed at individuals and teams. Our highly interactive sessions bring together theory and practice, with a focus on experiential learning.

Empowering Networks

We work together with networks and communities to leverage their collective power, using digital tools such as network visualisation and analysis.


We guide small groups on journeys of personal growth, leadership development and team capacity building. We create experiential & reflective learning environments to guide individual & group processes from the inside out.


Who we work with

A holistic approach

In times of rapid transformation, complexity and uncertainty, it is more crucial than ever to develop and be guided by inner clarity. Often when we talk about change we focus on the visible: rules, structures, behaviour, while ignoring the role of the intangible: mindset, values & culture. Each of these dimensions plays a significant and highly interrelated role. We offer a holistic approach which addresses and works with all four dimensions as a whole.
