A firm like no other.

Our story begins with an opportunity. In our case, it was the belief Dr. John Kotter held that if more people were better leaders, the benefits would be endless. We could change the world. So, almost a decade ago, we set out to make it come true. We audaciously started as a team of five and now have powerhouse people located across the United States and Europe. We practice what we preach, applying the fullness of Dr. Kotter’s robust and continuing thought leadership in organizational transformation. We challenge ourselves like we challenge our clients – stubborn in the belief that so much more is possible. We know what change feels like; both the exhilaration of daring to try to build something that doesn’t yet exist and the discomfort and uncertainty of discovering where to begin. Our success isn’t just in the methods and principles – it’s in the people. We share a common purpose: to see more leadership from more people and make our client organizations and ourselves better day after day.

Leadership is about setting a direction. It's about creating a vision, empowering and inspiring people to want to achieve the vision, and enabling them to do so with energy and speed through an effective strategy. In its most basic sense, leadership is about mobilizing a group of people to jump into a better future.

Our vision is as bold as it is simple: Millions leading, billions benefiting. We believe that leadership must be inclusive, rather than exclusive. The “why” of leadership is most important: to have a positive and lasting impact on people and organizations. We equip people – in large, coordinated numbers – to transform their organizations themselves and teach others how to do it. Millions leading, billions benefiting.


Kotter’s mission is to guide, educate, and inspire people so that they can become significantly better leaders, successfully transform organizations into truly great enterprises, and build a better world for future generations.
