We help businesses uncover unexpected solutions & unlock human potential.

Are you on the right path to advance your people & business in a world of never-ending whitewater?

The Engagement Problem

Employee engagement has been flat & muted for the past 15 years. How will your employees respond to yet another engagement initiative? Is it time to focus our attention elsewhere?

The Leadership Problem

For over 30 years, we’ve heard that leadership is the problem yet little changes despite all the attention and focus on it. How long are you willing to wait for leadership to show up?

The Resistance to Change Problem

Organizations repeatedly flock to the latest “silver bullet” & struggle with resistance. Wouldn't a better approach be one that everyone gets behind & excited about?

The forward-thinking workplace will need to embrace strategies that engage the purpose, creativity & potential of everyone while being informed by the many perspectives that are creating the workplace of the future today.

Dicken Bettinger on the most important but least recognized variable in business

"The most important variable—and the least recognized variable regarding importance in a business setting—is the state of mind of people within the workplace."

Michael Neill reveals why we don't need to work harder or even smarter but showing up committed & open

"It’s about showing up to any project fully committed and completely open. There’s just this connection to an intuitive creative collective unconscious that begins to emerge."

Paul McMahon with insights on why so much of what we're taught is upside down

    ~Masa K. Mada, CEO Valueinnova, LLC

  • “What I most admire about Bill is his creative mind, which is constantly at work, and produces out-of-the-box ideas for project management, team morale, change management, and much more.”

    LinkedIn Recommendation for Bill Fox
  • “Bill managed two very different projects for me, both of which were very difficult and complex in their unique ways. These were capability development projects that involved a diverse set of stakeholders across the organization, with high stakes and visibility. There were many unknowns and frequent challenges that require flexibility from a PM standpoint.”

    LinkedIn Recommendation for Bill Fox
  • “Highly recommended for anyone interested in successful process improvement programs. Bill Fox’s 5 Minutes to Process Improvement Success has the most profound insights from the some of greatest minds in the Process Improvement industry. His singular question of “What is your best process improvement strategy or tactic that has worked really well for you or your clients?” has succeeded in getting to the roots of process improvement strategies that ensures successful project execution.”

    Amazon Book Review
  • “As I’ve gotten older (and wiser) I’ve learned that most topics have multiple valid perspectives. A diversity of opinion allows me to see sides of an issue I’d missed, allow my organization to be more resilient when one approach isn’t working, and allow a more nuanced implementation of initiatives. This is EXACTLY what you get with this book.”

    Amazon Book Review
  • “I enjoyed the Igniting Self-Leadership workshop and thought the presenter did a great job providing a clear message with clear intent. The key take away for me was a portion of the presentation that focused on a key area of leadership that I thought always existed, but I had not really heard or read much about. All in all great job and highly recommended.”
