Every organization has a reason
for being, a fundamental purpose. Why
it exists. Out of that foundation emanates some foundational values and
principles of doing business, a strategy for surviving short term and
a vision of possibilities for the future. Put together, an identity emerges,
like an artist's rendering of something he sees, feels, and experiences.
Identity is a continuous snapshot of the present. While the fundamental
purpose, or "mission" and the values and operating principles remain
steadfast, the vision and strategies flex with the times.
We started in 1991 with Linda Pickard's desire to work with leaders in creating
work environments in which people can find fulfillment and also build prosperous
organizations. An avid reader of everything and a chastened rebel from organizational
life in several corporations, Linda joins many in the world pursuing the "holy
grail" of creating better places in which to work and pursue our individual and
collective passions. She is fortunate to work with a number of associates who
share her enthusiasm and focus on learning better ways to move forward in a non-stop "white
water rafting" global environment.
Our vision is simple: To bring leadership mastery "to the streets" in every country of the world.
