The Behavioral Application of Insight

Truth be told
you can get there in style or fraught with interpersonal pain.
Do it with less collateral damage.

A certain kind of happiness & relief surfaces when we  
apply our strengths in a vector towards what matters to us.

Surprisingly fun. Sustaining value.
Sometimes the most insightful person in the room isn't speaking up. Or, however well intended, one voice dominates. Or, your speaking doesn't do justice to what an amazing listener you are. Or, you stumble expressing too many ideas at once...you get the picture...the list is endless. The beauty & constraint of communication is its plasticity: we can shape professional/personal identity through simple everyday conversations - nothing fancy.

We've been testing our original approach to generative* communication with business clients, educators, MBA students & musicians for 10 years now so
you can bank on proven ways to unknot daily communication managing up,
down or sideways.  Our ethos: respectful communication is a 21st century business imperative.

squabbles naturally arising when people of conviction work together.

you receive. Participate in our "Yaven 360 Peer-to-Peer Feedback Loop”:

Raising team self-understanding propels right action & rapport. At the heart of
any group is one individual; when they rise the team rises.
* Distributed leadership. As a coach guiding business teams & music bands
in competitive environments I've come to appreciate the parallels between them:

In each individuals step up or back as needed serving a through line of mission/motif. There is respect for individual know-how & trust in another's ability to bring it. No matter the backstory people, have each other's backs performing
when it counts.

Distributed leadership is a framework for each to excel animating their specific skill sets as a project, conversation or unfolding strategy requires.
