PhilosophyCenter | SOPHIA℠ Consulting
  PhilosophyCenter | SOPHIA℠ ConsultingSkilled executive leaders surround themselves with innovative, responsible staff, people willing to take the next step, think creatively, and explore new directions consistent with their professional roles and the aims of the organization. Our SOPHIA℠ Consulting program offers such people an unmatched resource for personal and professional development, showing them how they can set aside contradictions that have been holding them back, break through to new levels of clarity, and adopt a stance of deep self-agreement, transforming the workplace into a richly rewarding and productive environment.

The benefits of regular philosophical consulting are game-changing in all areas of organizational life from accountability and team-building to clarification of mission and identity, conflict resolution, and improvements to the bottom line.

SOPHIA℠ Consulting brings to executive leaders the opportunity to realize greater vision, effectiveness, and success through identifying and resolving contradictions, obsolete or unwitting beliefs and assumptions, and unexamined choices. The methods we use are designed to deliver near immediate results in resolving even intractable and longstanding problems faced by organizations ranging from mission-critical issues and crisis management to daily operations including productivity, morale, turnover, and team-building. Our consulting model is maieutic—based on Socratic examination of beliefs, assumptions, and "stories" that each person brings to the workplace, in conjunction with powerful heuristic tools, many of which we have developed. This framework sets the stage for profound and effective shifts in each participant’s sense of responsibility and organizational identity, opening the way for leaders and other members of the team to enjoy a new level of efficiency, satisfaction, commitment, and success in the workplace. The value to any organization in need of these services is inestimable. Even in the near term, the program pays for itself many times over.

For more than 25 years, Philip Golabuk, our founder and director, has worked with clients to help them achieve clearer self-definition, a deeper sense of life direction and purpose, greater self-agreement, and the joyful awareness that being alive is a wonderful deal and not just an exhausting exercise in coping with stress.

SOPHIA℠ Scheduled

SOPHIA℠ Scheduled includes one weekly consulting session for up to three staff members. The structure provides the continuity and traction needed to do deep philosophical work, often required to resolve longstanding or systemic organizational issues. SOPHIA℠ Scheduled sessions are also invaluable in providing third-party assessment and candid recommendations in key areas of operation such as hiring, firing, performance reviews, and conflict resolution. Startups and companies redefining their identity or mission, including repositioning and rebranding, will benefit from the full, hour-long sessions and regular time set aside for philosophical self-examination, deconstruction of misaligned or contradicted assumptions and paradigms, and greater clarity in all aspects of leadership.

SOPHIA℠ Scheduled Add-On
Enrollment in this option grants a second meeting per week complete with summary report and action steps.

SOPHIA℠ On-Demand

SOPHIA℠ On-Demand support hours are from 10AM to 7PM Eastern time, Monday through Friday. If the consultant is unavailable to take the call, a return call is guaranteed within three hours. Note that on-demand consultations are limited to 30 minutes per call.

The need for support doesn't always conform to a weekly schedule. For those organizational leaders who prefer to retain our consulting services to be used "as needed," SOPHIA℠ On-Demand offers high-value benefits. On-demand access allows one key person in the organization to contact the SOPHIA℠ consultant directly—no scheduling needed. Place an unlimited number of on-demand calls (up to 30 minutes each) during the 90-day contract period.

SOPHIA℠ On-Demand is ideal when the need for support is time-sensitive, e.g., critical decision-making, conflict resolution, personal issues affecting work, unexpected business development and opportunities, etc. You'll receive a prompt response to questions and concerns as they arise, and enjoy the clarity, insight, and objective feedback and direction when it's needed most.

SOPHIA℠ On-Demand introduces a new level of strategic partnership, collaboration, and support to SOPHIA℠ clients. It's like having a dedicated philosophical consultant on staff—without the overhead and other costs associated with an in-house position.

SOPHIA℠ On-Demand Add-On
Enrollment in this option grants a second member of your team use of the direct access line each week during the 90 days of the SOPHIA℠ On-Demand contract period. You can even assign a different person from week to week!
