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 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.

SOPHIA℠ Scheduled

  • one 60-minute phone session every week provides continuity and traction
  • may include a second staff member on each 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
  • 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

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 calls (limit two per day 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

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.

PhilosophyCenter | Benefits   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. Using unique methods developed by PhilosophyCenter, we provide revolutionary consulting that has 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:

  • over 25 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.
