Culture Rise ™ gives leaders the tools to build higher-performing teams that produce better results.  


Better leadership behavior builds better companies.

We're excited to offer our one-day Culture Rise™ experience to help modern leaders become more self-aware and effective for their colleagues, departments, and company.

Mistakes were made.
So we wrote a book about it.

Written by four of the facilitators of Culture Rise™, Love as a Business Strategy is a brutally honest tell-all about how greed almost destroyed our company—and what we did to fix it.


We are practitioners, not academics.

Everything we share is based on lived experiences from real leaders running real businesses. Our facilitators build an empathic connection—leader-to-leader on a human level.

What we teach resonates around the world.

Across the globe, over 2,500 leaders from 60+ countries have learned to be more self-aware of their behavior—transforming how they lead others and bringing humanity back to their workplaces.

Culture Rise™

“It’s probably fair to say that Culture Rise was unlike any other training course that I’ve done in my career. At times, it was a little uncomfortable, but it was extremely educational about the way that we think and the way that we influence those around us, whether we realize it or not.”

Hamid R.

Culture Rise™

“I feel like it’s a different way of thinking, a different way of looking at not only leadership but humanity in the work-place… It’s not something that we’ll be able to change immediately, but it gave me bite-sized pieces of things that I can continually work on as a person–not [just] a person at work or a person at home, but a person in general.”

Susan H.
