Connecting the Future to Today's Business Model and Decisions

Think like Nature: elevate economic vitality while regenerating social and ecological health

Redesign your business model to Engage, Inspire and Profit from Disruption

Companies are living systems but are managed like machines, suppressing talent and creating waste. One person; one function at a time, reclaim the vitality of the entire organization and its value creating capacity through a networked system-wide approach.

Connect Decision Making to Impact

Replace expediency with effectiveness and fluent response to external changes. By recognizing the inter-relationships and inter-connectivity of relationships, decision-makers can adapt while optimizing creative talent in complex, volatile conditions. Utilize diversity and conflict to seize opportunities to increase and reward value creation.

Emergent Strategy

In complex dynamic external conditions, planning once a year leaves you reacting. Engaging your people in sensing the inflection points permits strategy to be event-driven, emergent and responsive. Learn how to use personal sensing to see opportunities, gain insights and make leaps while your competitors are waiting for stability to return.

Navigating the Intersection between Leadership & Culture

You are the most brilliant coach I could have ever had as a guide. Never doubt the immense growth that you bring to people. You see through situations in a way that I haven’t seen in anyone else. You profoundly understand the behaviors, the connections, the context and the environment all together in a second.
Being able to read the system like that plus the emotions that I brought to the situations, separate them and objectively guide me has been just perfect. –S.Woloschin

Employee Retention

Our goal was to improve team communication. By going beneath the surface to tackle the source of problems, not only was there an immediate ROI by way of improvement in the team’s relationship but the work gave us a real and tangible cash savings of 1600% in terms of staff retention over the initial investment. I expected good things but Dawna exceeded my expectations. For me this was both money and time well invested into the lives of my team.

When Traditional Business Management Collides with Millennial Sensibility

Personal or Group Coaching

“As a Performance Management Analyst one of my core responsibilities is to stay abreast of current industry trends, research, and best practices and how my company or client can utilize and translate them into their own working environments or business practices. I wanted to learn about tools and methods other people in similar roles were using to track or communicate how cultural and/or organizational changes helping to increase value and productivity. Dawna's way of articulating the collective content in fresh, poignant, and thought-provoking way helped me creatively and analytically develop a more comprehensive perspective to my own tools, methods and communication. She helps connect the Millennial mind and Baby Boomer drive, as businesses continue to define their facility and workplace environments.”
