When birds preen, they engage in deep bonding and grooming that conditions them for flight.  This is what we do.  We mentor our team to work with passion and with urgency because we believe in what the firm is accomplishing, creating spaces that up-level energy for the world.

We train internally to be accountable for all aspects of a project and in how to create integrity for our partner client and build teams.  This is a BIG deal.  We transform job sites with the shared intent to create a world in which everyone has a place in the tribe. “Hospitality is the virtue of a great soul that cares for the whole universe through the ties of humanity.”  Louis de Jaucort
