  • What's the best-next-step in your career?

    "If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there."

    You've got to be proactively managing your career; no one's doing it for you.

  • The "Flourish Factor"

    People often ask us where the idea for the Flourish Factor originated. It all started when Debra and her husband purchased a previously owned home in Northern California.

     

    On the back patio, the previous owners had left behind a pine tree in a planter box. It was a perfectly fine little pine tree. It was green; it was growing; it was healthy.

     

    After moving the pine tree around on the patio for a few years, Debra decided she wanted to plant it in the backyard.

     

    Over the course of the next year, the pine tree grew at twice its normal rate -- flourishing in its new environment.

     

    It was then that Debra realized that people are just like that pine tree. There are environments in which we can exist and survive, but in the right environment we can actually thrive and flourish.

     

    When she shared the story with Danielle, they realized what a fitting metaphor it was for the research they were completing for the book. Thus was born the idea of the Flourish Factor profile.

    Because career management is a unique and individual process for each client (whether corporate or individual), we limit the number of clients with whom we work at any point in time.

     

    Our executive consultants personally guide the alignment of talent with organizational needs. On an individual level, they guide clients to determine the right “next best step” and help them get there fast -- even in the "confidential search" process.

     

    As such, we are not always able to accept new clients. Please contact us about availability.
