Strategic planning

Shape the strategy that will enable you to achieve your purpose, meet ambitious goals, attract investment, and compete effectively. We bring innovative frameworks and a planning process that’s engaging, not tedious. We can analyze market, operations, competition, customer/client/ community trends, etc. to inform the plan.

Leadership Coaching
and Training

Experienced... and innovative

At Google, Lorne was one of less than 1% certified as a coaching ‘guru’ to advise executives and team members – and rated 5/5 by clients. We’ll catalyze your progress using our exclusive Next Level framework, which focuses on strengthening the leadership attributes you want to prioritize, and learning how to invest in your team to maximize their growth and impact.


For individuals

Coach leaders to set goals and take action around growth and performance for themselves and the team. Quickly reach the next level as a leader.


For teams

Facilitate leadership teams to build high trust, collaboration, and performance. We'll help you guide the organization to navigate through change, challenges, and new opportunities.


Skill-building and training

Equip your team to achieve. We can design and/or deliver training in key skill areas for high performance -- with an emphasis on active, fun, experiential learning rather than tedious lecture and presentation-based approaches. Or we can project-manage curation or creation of a customized suite of online modules specific to your team.

Disability Inclusion

Your organization may be missing a major opportunity.

The data suggest that more than 20% of your US employees have disabilities, and that at least 75% of employees will have a temporary or permanent disability during their career. Yet many companies and organizations are not doing well at recruiting from this community, or at empowering their employees with disabilities and neurodivergent employees to succeed. In other words, you’re likely missing out on the potential for significant contributions from this outstanding pool of talent.


We can help you engage with this essential community.

We’re experts at helping top companies to become leaders in disability inclusion. We'll show you how to fully engage your internal community of employees with disabilities, and how to attract new top talent.


Our services for disability inclusion:

  • Current employee experience. We can guide you to incorporate best practices for ensuring that employees with disabilities and neurodivergent team members feel safe and included, and are able to contribute fully. We can also help you establish and support a thriving employee resource group(s).

  • Hiring. We can create or refine your recruiting strategy, and manage or advise on execution. At Google, we succeeded at substantially increasing the pipeline and hiring of technical and non-technical talent across roles and levels.

  • Employment brand. We’ll design and guide the marketing and outreach plan to articulate the organization’s commitment to this community, and establish you as a desired and trusted brand for both potential employees and customers.

  • Accommodations. Workplace accommodations enable employees with disabilities to be productive, and are required by law. We'll set up or refine your program and policies so that you can provide needed and appropriate accommodations cost-effectively, while preserving your employees' dignity and privacy.
