founders’ story

We’ve evolved from conflict management specialists to a boutique leadership advisory firm.

We built our reputation as conflict management consultants, drawing on negotiation and mediation training from Harvard to help our clients approach difficult conversations, strengthen critical relationships and resolve high-stakes financial, political and commercial disputes around the world.

As our practice grew, we found that we could have an even greater impact using the same approach to build stronger and more effective relationships across top teams.

Instead of just helping clients manage disputes, we could prevent them, and create an environment for individuals and organizations to thrive.

Adjunct teaching at Harvard and other institutions allows us to absorb and influence current academic thinking, and through Insight Partners – and our non-profit arm, Insight Collaborative – we apply that thinking to real-life challenges from resolving conflict to reshaping culture.
