SOlutions with a TwisT

Our clients crave creative & interactive experiences that engage the senses, foster heartfelt & authentic dialogues, opportunities to imagine new possibilities, rapid and scalable transformation, and practical supports for creating & sustaining long-lasting change.  Drawing upon a variety of cutting edge disciplines and tools to work with individuals, teams, and/or organizations, we do this by:

  • Preparing HEARTS to navigate the emotional aspects of change, transformation & building new visions
  • Equipping MINDS with the knowledge needed to shift and change
  • And strengthening the HANDS to take concrete actions towards new ways of being, gathering & behaving

Where We Focus

Our work is anchored in 3 key themes:


"The business of life is human connection."

Our differences hold our greatest potential for connection.  So, we design each engagement to embrace difference and emphasize the value of connecting to the unique individual gifts, perspectives, passions, skills, lived experiences, and talents that each of us brings to a given situation or space. 

Through deep reflection, leaning into discomfort, and supportive inquiry, our experiences teach and support you in connecting with the truths that emerge at both the individual and the collective levels.  


"Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others."

As vision is critical to success, we will spend a lot of time in the visual & sensory realms.  Through our work, we focus heavily on visually articulating the invisible.  Using techniques from phototherapy, art, theater, mindfulness, field journaling, and tracking, we will delve into what you want to create, what wants to emerge, and explore the conditions that are driving you forward or keeping you stuck.  By the end of our journey or experience together, you will recognize your "North Star", have a plan for getting there, and feel equipped to course correct or adjust as needed. 


"Everything you can imagine is real."

Exercising creativity is a great act of power and is a prerequisite for transformation and upleveling.  We are creative midwives skilled at helping you get clear and being courageous about imagining and creating something new, going to the next level, or delving deeper into connection.  We provide a baseline set of strategies and tools through our engagements & experiences.  We will also help you identify or develop the strategies that will keep you, your teams, and your organization aligned with your vision & goals in order to achieve the results that you seek to create.
