WHAT WE BELIEVE
OUR MISSION

It’s our mission to transform intellectually curious managers into strategically-minded business leaders with training and development programs that are fresh, engaging and relevant. By focusing on the concepts of organizational culture, strategic storytelling, innovation, and change leadership, we help our clients shape healthy and productive environments for a thriving workforce.

OUR VALUES

We place tremendous value on intellectual curiosity and respectfully challenging the “conventional wisdom of the dominant group” (or, as complexity theorist C.H. Waddington referred to it, COWDUNG!). In a corporate training environment overrun with mediocrity, we strive to pair outstanding content with an outstanding experience, because we believe learning should be fun, relevant, and engaging.

OUR PROMISE

Delivering exceptional learning experiences is our greatest honor. Should we ever fail to achieve these high and worthy standards in the eyes of our clients, we will make it right 100% of the time. In fact, if you don’t rate our services as a 4 out of 5 or higher, they’re 100% free, PERIOD!

A FEW PEOPLE WE’VE HELPED
TESTIMONIALS

THAT’S NICE OF YOU TO SAY!

“S2A’s culture workshops are engaging, interactive and thought-provoking! Unlike most training programs, S2A’s workshops are grounded in the real-world, offering clear and practical guidance for leaders in search of greater results (individually and organizationally). It was just what our leadership team needed – an opportunity to reset and think about how to transform our organization through lasting cultural changes!” ~Nick Buscher, MBA, VP and General Manager, Thermo-Fisher Scientific

“The GlobalTech case was a great way to talk about and experience a change initiative in a safe environment. It helped us to develop a common language, discuss our past efforts successes and failures and engage in a fun shared experience as well.” ~Chris Weiler, Weiler Corporation

“It was great to learn about strategy as a concept.  I’ve been the Process Owner for the Zoo since I started here.  It was nice to listen to, hear input and talk through the concepts that surround strategy and its implementation.  The discussions on getting buy-in and opinion leaders was really interesting.  It’s the first time I’ve heard of either of those approaches to deployment and it makes a lot of sense.”  ~Rhiannon Hoeweler, Senior Director, Visitor Experience, Strategy, & FUN, Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

“The whole experience was amazing. S2A’s team did an excellent job of facilitating the project, guiding us through our specific context while interjecting outside perspectives that helped drive results and keep things entertaining!” ~Joe Lockett, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Cincinnati Bell

“With S2A’s guidance, we’ve been able to create a culture of respect and open communication. We are seeing results in how employees are communicating cross functionally, helping each other and genuinely wanting the the company to succeed.” ~William Kramer, III, President, GTC

“The design thinking workshop is a comprehensive methodology delivered through an exciting interactive online session based within a classroom environment generating a great energy and positive approach to innovation.” ~Brendan Gordon, Dell
