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

SOPHIA℠ 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.

SOPHIA℠ Scheduled Call

  • one 60-minute phone session every other week provides continuity and traction
  • scheduled call may include up to two staff members per call
  • provides third-party assessment and recommendations in key areas of operation such as hiring, firing, performance reviews, organizational development, and conflict resolution
  • regular scheduling allows for clarification and resolution of longer-term and systemic issues
  • after-meeting report is an invaluable tool for session review
  • best for deep work with far-reaching organizational impact

Organizations redefining their identity or mission, including repositioning and rebranding, will benefit from the scheduled sessions and structured time set aside for philosophical self-work, deconstruction of misaligned or contradicted assumptions and beliefs, and greater clarity in all areas of leadership.

SOPHIA℠ On-Demand Calls

The need for support doesn't always conform to a predictable schedule. SOPHIA℠ on-demand calls are ideal when the need for support is urgent or 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.

  • unlimited on-demand calls (up to 30 minutes each) provide direct and prompt access
  • reserved for one organizational liaison
  • provides as-needed support to key leadership in response to changing conditions
  • on-demand sessions allow for situational clarity and direction in real-time
  • best for "think tank," time-critical, and hotline support

SOPHIA℠ on-demand access 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 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 two hours. On-demand calls are limited to 30 minutes each.

Cancelled or Missed Sessions

Non-Disclosure } Termination of Services
PhilosophyCenter agrees not to disclose any client's identity, information concerning the working relationship described herein, or session details to any third party.

Placing the Call

Clients who opt to place the call via cell phone or VoIP assume responsibility for the acceptability of the connection. In the event that such calls cause excessive noise, repeat disconnects, or other issues that hinder the normal course of study, the instructor may end the call until the client can call back in when a land line connection is available.

Appropriate Participation
All PhilosophyCenter clients are required to maintain an attitude of respect for the consultant and others who may be on the call, and to refrain from polemics, sarcasm, profanity, provocative, promotional, and other inappropriate forms of expression during the call and in emails or other forms of communication. The failure to honor this requirement may result in the loss of PhilosophyCenter support and eligibility for future enrollments.

Limited Use
The PhilosophyCenter direct access phone number provided at the time of enrollment may be used only to initiate SOPHIA℠ sessions during the contract period and may not be shared with any third party.
