What I do is weird. My brother calls me a workshrink.


How do we unlearn, relearn and rethink… everything?

Work is becoming messier – and weirder. Roles are less and less defined. So we help leaders and teams think differently, move out of silos, navigate politics and create together. (Plus, silos are boring.)

We also borrow freely from many disciplines and best practices, so you can unlock expertise and great ideas quickly with tangible outcomes.

And we combine strategy with a sense of humor… because we’re going to need it.

Carolyn Solares, Managing Partner, MurphyMerton
I work with organizations of all sizes to make work easier and unlock the hidden drivers of growth. I incorporate unconventional, but effective approaches to strategy, growth and outcomes. I’ve led capability development, strategy and innovation projects in Fortune 100 companies and small businesses. I have an MBA from Xavier University, a BA in Russian Studies from Fordham University, and served in the U.S. Army as an intelligence officer. My coaching training includes NeuroLeadership Institute’s Brain-based Coaching, Matrix Management Institute’s Matrix Leadership Foundations, and the Playing Big Facilitator’s Training with Tara Mohr.

Work differently.
