Promoting a Cycle
of Fulfillment

Disrupting the Traditional
Talent Development Model

In the industrial and information age we valued people primarily based on the skills they could offer.
The result? Our identity at work became mainly tied to our skills, not to who we are. 

We Are Flipping the Model

We’ve flipped the traditional model on its head. By placing a large emphasis on your individual purpose, we’re changing the way you contribute in the workplace. 

Your short-term skills will continuously change over time and with market demand. However, your values, impact, and craft will always be unique to you.
