Whole-Brain Creativity Consulting,
Coaching and Facilitating

For Entrepreneurs, Leaders, Teams & Organizations

Are You at the Edge of What You Know?

When knowledge and information are infused with creativity and imagination an organization becomes engaged, resilient and generative. We partner with our clients to become a creative entrepreneur, a creative team, or creative organization by:

• Going from what's wrong to what's next - and what's alive

Using creative, generative, whole-brain thinking
• Unlocking the collective intelligence and ingenuity of teams
  and the unique creative gifts of individuals
• Integrating purpose, passion, profit, play and serving the good of the whole
• Establishing a culture where creativity, improvisation and innovation are the norm
• Creating new foundations to support thriving, engaging and fun work

Our Focus is Emergence with Whole Brain Creativity

Our signature Emergence Focus™ uses what is relevant in both problem-focused and outcome-focused approaches, and includes a new dimension. We get there using Whole Brain Practices.

Where the Known and the Unknown Meet

Our clients are on that edge. We help individuals and organizations work in unknown territory and learn to use it as a business resource. We use our Creative Emergence Process and an integration of whole-brain methods which include emergent strategy, storytelling, applied improvisation, body-centered and arts-based practices to name a few.
