What We Do

When you eliminate low-value activities such as overcrowded or ill-designed meetings and unclear or unnecessary emails, you get to spend time on work that really matters, such as discovering a breakthrough treatment for a life-threatening illness or creating the technology that will reinvent an industry. You also feel more energized, engaged, and in control. This is our aspiration for our clients.

We work side-by-side with forward-thinking leaders to find a set of high-leverage actions that they can take to get them from where they are starting to where they want to be. Whether it’s resetting the standard meeting duration to 45 minutes, blocking off no meeting hours at certain times of day, or upgrading the skills of key individuals in the organization, we design the process which will catalyze a new set of expectations and ways of working in the organization and create real lasting change.

Teams have become the standard formation for advancing complex work inside organizations.

Their performance, then, is critical to overall organizational effectiveness. Yet there are some consistent reasons why teams get stuck:

  • Lack of strategic clarity
  • Mismatch between the most important outcomes and the day-to-day work
  • Confusion on how decisions get made
  • Overabundance of meetings that are about the work, rather than doing the work
  • Email overload, causing team members to stall out on key deliverables
  • Inconsistent practices for sharing knowledge and using collaborative technologies
  • Stop Meeting Like This

    47% of meeting time is seen as unproductive

  • Driven to Distraction

    Office workers check their inbox 30 times per hour

  • There, but not really‚Ķ

    Worldwide, only 13% of employees are engaged at work
