Who we are

Our mission is to help leaders and teams to access and leverage their ability to be present, sharp, caring, creative and fully human in the role of leadership, so that they may truly flourish in work and in life.

What We Value

Humanity

We aim to elevate leaders so they lead with their best human qualities – even in the face of complex and demanding situations. The outcome results in a workplace that is filled with meaning, connectedness and care.

Curiosity

Curiosity is the starting point for harnessing the mind’s potential. Our programmes activate a sense of curiosity about how the mind works and how it shapes our experience.

This leads to more creative and innovative thinking.

Presence

We approach people and situations with simplicity and strive to bring freshness, openness and presence to everything we do. It is a mindset we do our best to embody.

It is the essence of what we bring to companies and help them to cultivate internally. 

Collaboration

Our work environment is positive, hivelike and collaborative. Diverse points of view are encouraged and explored.

This sense of collaboration extends to our clients, whose feedback is always solicited and enriches our programmes and sharpens our interventions.

Our Team

We are a cohesive team with decades of experience in international corporate leadership, meditation and performance coaching. We work with heart and genuine care. We all share a commitment to practice what we teach.


Our aim is to deliver impact for our clients. We facilitate personal and organisational transformation that improves the way companies function internally and impact the world externally.
