Vision, Mission, Values

Every organization, team, or person has a center that either fuels or limits your potential.  We help make sure your center is there to lift you up rather than hold you back.

At Centered, our passion is to partner with creative and resourceful people to create dynamic and thriving workplaces where everyone grows and excels.  Success is when organizations are able to build cultures that prioritize fulfillment, growth, and continuous improvement knowing that these are the qualities that drive meaningful change and dramatic business results.

We are your partner, helping to create the heart at the center of your organization.  By working with you to align culture, leadership, and ways of working with tailored, principle bases solutions we will create a more fulfilling, engaging, and productive space your people won't want to leave.  We believe the best way to accomplish this is by bringing the right people together in collaborative spaces to leverage the collective wisdom of your people to find the solutions right for you.

Transformation is HARD

We've been in the transformation business for decades, and it's rough.  McKinsey posted statistics showing that 70% of transformations fail outright, 22% break even, and 8% show real improvement

Only 8% of transformations succeed

For a while we didn't do much better than that, but we found when we spent time with leaders coaching, working to define and measure culture, and building empowered and fulfilled teams success rates climbed and meaningful change took hold.

The Centered difference is our human-centered approach to transformation that drives success at all levels of your organization.
