PhilosophyCenter | Overview PhilosophyCenter | SOPHIA℠ Consulting
PhilosophyCenter | SOPHIA℠ Consulting
  PhilosophyCenter | SOPHIA℠ ConsultingForward-thinking leaders surround themselves with innovative, committed staff, people willing to think creatively, take the next step, and explore new directions commensurate with their professional roles and the aims of the organization. SOPHIA℠ offers such leaders an unmatched resource, helping them to 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, productive, and meaningful environment.

SOPHIA℠ brings to executive, organizational, and governmental leaders the opportunity to realize greater vision, effectiveness, and success through identifying unexamined beliefs and assumptions, resolving contradictions, and revising obsolete choices. The methods we use are designed to deliver near immediate results in tackling even intractable and longstanding problems faced by organizations ranging from mission-critical issues and crisis management to daily operations including productivity, internal and external communication, hiring and firing, performance, morale, motivation, turnover, and team-building. Our approach 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 developed. This framework sets the stage for profound and lasting shifts in each participant’s sense of buy-in and accountability, opening the way for leaders to realize new levels of efficiency, satisfaction, and commitment in the workplace. The value to any organization in need of these services is inestimable. Even in the short term, the program pays for itself many times over.

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.

PhilosophyCenter | Benefits   SOPHIA℠ brings game-changing improvements to all areas from organizational culture to the bottom line. Using unique methods developed by PhilosophyCenter, we provide revolutionary consulting with the power to enlighten and inspire today's leaders in organizations, companies, agencies, and educational institutions.

SOPHIA℠ can help you and your staff:

  • identify and resolve hidden contradictions and unexamined assumptions that are having an adverse impact in the workplace
  • clarify the next step for your organization
  • bring values, mission, and methods into agreement
  • realize inspired leadership informed by your highest vision through "philosophical accountability"
  • discover new depths of excellence, commitment, accountability, efficiency, and purpose
  • break free of habitual, "default" thinking that hinders better choices
  • experience a renewal of enthusiasm and greater appreciation for the work you do each day, individually and collectively

In addition, the SOPHIA℠ approach offers significant advantages over traditional organizational consulting:

  • 30 years of experience that includes the development of methods unique to PhilosophyCenter and proven in thousands of sessions
  • convenience of teleconsulting eliminates travel and related costs
  • guaranteed session availability through priority scheduling or on-demand access
  • outsourced professional recommendations for organizational change provide for more graceful transitions and implementation of new practices than "on-high" directives
Human relations problems are hidden costs that can quickly erode an organization's profits, morale, and operational sustainability. Whether the issue affecting the workplace is professional or personal, SOPHIA℠ is a powerful and proven investment that can help you make your organizational vision a reality.
