there is so much stuff to focus on.

We can choose to focus on

DEFICITS OR STRENGTHS
We choose to focus on

STRENGTHS
By exploring the

ABUNDANCE

present in every organization
By discovering the many

UNEXPECTED

OPPORTUNITIES
tapping into the potential held in

EVERYDAY
INTERACTIONS
to achieve results that exceed

TI
A ONS!
EXPECT
By working with

LEADERS
at all levels

Helping them address their

ENGES
&
make meaningful and lasting

CHANGES

LEARN &

APPRECIATE
THREE ESSENTIAL

PRINCIPLES

Co-Creation

Creating
the Future
About change in

HUMAN
SYSTEMS

We believe that inquiring into the

BEST OF THE PAST
and building on it to

CREATE THE FUTURE
is a more

RELIABLE
&
SUCCESSFUL
approach
than

ANALYZING THE PAST

and trying to

PREDICT THE FUTURE
