Our consulting practice thrives at the intersection of experience and tools. We have a strong practitioner bias, so much so that we’re a consultancy without any career consultants. Any advice we give clients is rooted in hands-on experience and focuses on engaging people to work towards outcomes. Our expertise is in translating strategy, so that it drives transformation, understanding the human side of change management, and how message discipline and storytelling play a critical role.
We augment that expertise with a set of proven tools that help guide and focus the work. Our overarching tool is The Rize System℠. In a macro sense, this tool lays out the connective tissue that holds an organization together, starting with Purpose and moving through Leadership, People, Culture and Customers. This tool helps identify alignment, gaps and even contradictions. The Rize System℠ is strengthened when we add other “how to” tools developed over the last 20 years. They include Scenario Planning, Outcome Planning and Shaping Culture.
As The How Company, all of our work is practical and outcome-based. We never exit a client engagement with the parties involved not being entirely clear on how to move forward with equally clear next steps and actions that will drive to a satisfying outcome.
