About Us

We are a purpose-led boutique leadership consultancy that evolved out of the fusion of a breakthrough innovation agency with a human development enterprise. We are committed to a world better led, a world wiser led, for a regenerative future.

All our work is focused on driving transformative change so leaders, teams, and organizations flourish in today’s relentless uncertainty, chaos, and complexity—and so can accelerate the development of a socially-just, sustainable, prosperous, and regenerative future for us all.

In response to growing business challenges derived from the radically-changing world—as well as ecological damage and social disruptions—over the last 23+ years we have developed game-changing solutions to the most intense and important challenges that leaders face.

This has driven restless innovation in the leadership space to evolve pioneering leadership, innovation, and systemic change programs—as well as on-demand courses, toolkits, and books—that are built upon our own theory, Bio-Transformation®. Our method is powered by the latest brain, behavioral, and complexity science combined with practices and wisdom from the contemplative traditions.
