It means "Infuse with Strength".
That's what we do.
We began studying Millennial behavior over five years ago and are the leading experts in transforming the modern workplace based on the digitally-influenced needs of future talent, including Millennials and Gen Z. For industries with increasing Boomer retirements and decreasing attractiveness to today's top talent, such as Manufacturing, Utilities, and Insurance, transforming traditional corporate culture to a renewed workplace model is crucial.
Here's the typical solution. Most organizations:
- Only react under competitive pressure
- Copy "sexy" workplaces
- Use a mess of statistics, whitepapers, and consultants to throw darts at the proverbial whiteboard of possible solutions
What we do instead is help shape the present based on clarifying the future. We do that by:
- Making sense of the Millennial mess - provide clear understanding about Millennial behavior
- Connect Millennial behavior with defining the new needs of all digitally-enabled talent (across generations, Gen Z, etc.)
- Co-create workplace culture strategy that takes your organization from old-school to fit for the future
Come explore the future of the workplace with us.

"Your talk was so uniquely powerful because it was relatable by all ages. We went home and talked about it at dinner and all of us, from my 9 year old to my husband, had something we got from it. You really get all ages and your insights are so valuable for the older generation."
"I learned a lot from your session. I actually just finished sharing many of the things I learned on our team call. I look forward to reviewing your work further and seeing how we can utilize it. I was pleased to see a new perspective on a well worn topic.”
