Our mission is to coach extraordinary leaders and to develop empathy as core competency. We work with business owners, nonprofit organizations, professionals, universities and community members who are facing challenges in their personal and professional effectiveness or want to reach their full capacity as a leader.​


We bring professionals together for ongoing opportunities to network, build relationships and develop skills. Our most popular activity is the Seven Strangers at Dinner event which we host monthly. We also partner with existing organizations and companies that have similar values in community events, activities and programs.

Check-out our community calendar on Facebook or news section for our next opportunity and be sure to invite your network.

Learning Community

According to a NACE survey, the perception of employers is that recent college graduates do not have proficient competencies to excel in their roles. We started a learning community as a way to keep all of us on track to grow as professionals. Join us.

Community Programs

We believe in building a strong and competent community. We offer free and low cost activities around our Seven Strangers model, including networking opportunities, retreats and learning labs. Attendees not only activate their skills but also build new relationships in their professional community and industries.


Empathic Leadership

Our model of coaching is unique and unlike any other that you might find as it looks at the intersection of human behavior and the human condition. The mastery of empathy, as a communication tool, sets our programs apart from others in the market ---anywhere in the United States.
