||Forward-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 and other members of the team 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.
The need for support doesn't always conform to a predictable schedule. SOPHIA℠ On-Demand is ideal when the need for support is urgent or time-sensitive, e.g., critical decision-making, crisis management, conflict resolution, personal issues affecting work, unexpected business development and opportunities, etc. You'll receive a real-time response to questions and concerns as they arise, and enjoy the clarity, insight, and objective feedback and direction when it's needed most.
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.
The Direct Access Line is open from 10AM to 7PM Eastern, Monday through Friday including holidays. If the consultant is unavailable, a return call or text is guaranteed within two hours. On-demand calls are limited to 30 minutes each.
*Messages left after 4PM Eastern may be returned the following business day during normal Direct Access Line hours of operation.

|"So many powerful, game-changing insights came out of this last session. It was awe-inspiring."
"Working with Philip as my coach has been and cotinues to be life-changing."
"Thanks for all of your continuing support. I can hardly thank you enough for your guidance and helping me show up more in the truth with open arms."
"Profound and far-reaching. We consider SOPHIA an invaluable partnership."
"Nowadays, leadership has to be more than smart—it has to be wise. Philosophical consulting is just what the doctor ordered for what ails today's organizational leaders."
"SOPHIA's insight-based leadership has given us a way to make decisions from the inside-out in every area of our organization."
"Philip told us what we needed to hear, not what we wanted to hear. This is consulting that challenges leaders to show up outside the box of old ways that aren't working. Indispensable support."
"A single SOPHIA session led directly to our closing a deal the next morning for three million dollars. This is consulting at a whole new level."
"Our SOPHIA sessions not only have made me a better CEO, but also and more importantly, a better person."
"Paradigm-changing. Highly recommended."
