Insights, Implications, Actions

All organizations are in a state of change—whether navigating a senior leadership transition, refining a mission, improving products, launching a large-scale project, on-boarding new employees, or responding to crises—there is always a change process underway. Yet while we are all familiar with the saying “change is the only constant,” very few organizations are equipped with the tools to navigate change smoothly and successfully.


We value results over process, and know it’s never about us (or the tools we employ), it’s always about you. We get to the heart of the matter quickly for our clients—our team of culture, strategy, and organizational health professionals help you:

  1. Drive out insights related to root causes (why does the situation exist in the first place);
  2. Connect-the-dots related to implications (what happens if nothing is done to address the situation); and
  3. Discover the best right answer(s) related to next steps (concrete, comprehensive actions designed to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be).

What we don’t do is this—we never assume that off-the-shelf, macro-level approaches to assessing organizational health and performance that are followed by superficial, one-size-fits-all methodologies related to training and change management ever get the job done. We are efficient, focused, and look at each client’s situation uniquely—constantly asking ourselves, “What are the BEST levers to get things moving forward, faster? What organizational and leadership strengths can we make BIGGER?”


We can help you accelerate through change too.

What Motivates Us:  Values, Vision, Velocity


An organization either stands by its values, or it doesn’t. There’s no middle ground. At Tipton we believe all great leaders want the best for their organizations, their employees and their communities. We help our clients operate from a values-first perspective which drives cultures of high-respect and high-performance.


The research is pretty clear — nothing motivates us more than working from our strengths. At Tipton we believe that individuals only reach their highest potential if they are motivated by a compelling vision, are invited to contribute their best, and understand why their work matters. It’s simple, really — a shared, powerful vision makes all the difference.


The world isn’t slowing down for anyone. At Tipton we believe our clients need transformational, agile, and high-velocity approaches related to planning for the future, navigating uncertainty, overcoming obstacles and transforming their workplaces.  When this happens, spectacular results are everywhere.
