About us

A pioneering leadership advisory firm

Bob Kaplan and David DeVries began their ground-breaking leadership work in the 1980s at the Center for Creative Leadership. For the first time research-based 360 surveys were made widely available and ‎leadership development designed expressly for executives was introduced. 

In 1992 Bob Kaplan founded the firm to provide CEOs and management teams with the clarity they need to propel lasting change in their way of leading and the clarity organizations need to select leaders with confidence. We have become trusted advisors to leaders of some of the world’s most influential companies. We regularly consult to CEOs, from large corporations to start-ups.

Our people

Our consultants are steeped in experience consulting to senior managers and their teams. What we bring to clients goes beyond the credentials on paper. The gift of our years of experience is that we are equipped to navigate complex issues with ease and grace.

Clients tell us they value us, not only because of the results, but also the quality of our relationships with them and with each other. Above all, we are bound together as a team by a deep commitment to helping clients and ourselves grow. We live what we do.
