Waking up new minds.

The AWAKEN framework is a practice for conscious decision-making. For us, this practice also drives all of our work — from consulting to implementation, and from system improvement to people development.   

 

Rooted in our values — humility, empathy, vulnerability, authenticity, and collaboration — AWAKEN is designed to help individuals, teams, and organizations:

 

Increase awareness of bias and diverse perspectives

Strengthen teams by building relationships and community

Implement strategies to plan forward and reflect back 

Create sustainable conscious decision-making habits

Foster safety, trust, and belonging

REFLECTING ON AWAKEN

WORDS FROM PEOPLE WE'VE TRAINED

"I see things differently now I am tuned into my bias. It’s impossible not to use that lens now. The film has been lifted from my eyes."
