How We’ll Work Together


Customized consulting solutions to guide your organization through a proven roadmap for building a Culture of ListeningTM


Recognize the Unsaid


Seek to Understand






Close the Loop

Step 1 - Recognize the Unsaid

Pick up on important signals.

Human interaction can be challenging at times, especially when it comes to discussing sensitive topics. However, there are ways to navigate these conversations safely and effectively. The first step is to safely explore what everyone hesitates to say out loud. Plant the seed for change: give people the feeling of being heard, hope about imminent changes, clarity about where we are now, and shared knowledge of what needs to be addressed.

Step 2 - Seek to Understand

Capture insights & emotions.

Capture valuable insights through active listening and help everyone gain deep, valuable insights about what team members and customers want and need. Later, you’ll be able to harness this knowledge of what your people care about as a foundation for measurable, organization-wide change.

Step 3 - Decode

See a complete picture.

Decipher what’s most important to team members and customers. You’ll finally see a complete picture of what people are finding unsatisfactory, tough, or frustrating and have the opportunity to reflect on which changes will most likely have the greatest impact.

Step 4 - Act


Capture hearts and minds at every level.

Leveraging insights from prior steps, you are now ready build an inclusive and collaborative action plan. Everyone will feel excited, empowered, and deeply engaged as they contribute to creating this culture and experience a transformative reality where they will be capturing hearts and minds at every level.

Step 5 Icon

Close the Loop

Connect the dots.

Connect the dots for your employees and customers by communicating how you’ve been listening, what you see missing, and the actions you’re taking as a result. As your team members feel valued, heard, and empowered, they own more, give more, and perform at unprecedented levels of excellence. Customers will respond with more brand loyalty.
