Make Strategy Happen.

How We Help

We pinpoint the root causes of your stickiest organizational challenges, and design human-centered solutions that last.

Cultural Discovery

Our lightweight but high-impact cultural discovery process, powered by Constellation, illuminates the human networks and cultural logjams that shape your operation.

Strategy Design

We pair these insights with our strategy design process to develop, test and scale innovative solutions in collaboration with your people.

Leadership Development

NILE, our award-winning leadership development program that we created in response to rising military suicide rates, exemplifies the transformational impact of our human-centered approach.

We're Experts at the delicate work of culture design.

When innovation seems out of reach, the cause is almost always rooted in your company culture. When your culture is off balance, your business will be too.

Our cultural discovery process will help you diagnose the root causes of your current challenges. We’ll use those insights to co-create custom strategies that ignite innovation from the inside out.

Custom solutions for custom problems

We don’t sell off-the-shelf strategies pulled from a textbook. Instead we partner directly with your people to co-create strategies rooted in the cultural strengths of your teams.

Design with Kristin

Closing out Black History Month, we highlight the work of a notable architect. Our Chief Learning & Design Officer Kristin Dahlgren Carter discusses his work and legacy in her monthly Design Series feature.

“As I was thinking about the important role that HBCUs have played in black history as places of learning, I went a bit further and came across a key figure who was at the intersection of learning and design at arguably the most well-known HBCU, Howard University.









International Women's day!

Today is International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate women’s achievements and take actions toward gender parity. The theme of IWD 2024 is #InspireInclusion, which calls all of us to forge a more inclusive world for women in two key ways: by inspiring others to understand and value women’s inclusion, and by inspiring women themselves to be included. For March’s #S2ABookOfTheMonth, we asked S2A’s Rachel Bauer to share a book with us that was written by an inspiring woman. She is sharing “Fair Play” by Eve Rodsky, a book that inspired her to model inclusion and equity for women in all aspects of her life.
