why? - Connection
The goal is simple. Use simple, repeatable and developed frameworks to develop opportunities for people to more effectively connect driving more collaborative, cohesive and productive environments. That can be a family environment, a community environment, an education environment or a company environment. It is proven time and time again that people are more productive when they feel psychologically safe to bring themselves because they trust the environment they are in. We sign the pledge to Anchor people in a compassionate conversation using the 5-Cs.
How? - Simplicity
We have developed the M.O.R.E approach to anchor people in compassionate conversation through the 5 - Cs: Connection, Communication, Commitment, Compassion, Conversation.
We deliver this through a series of engagements that inform and challenge everyone to engage with one another. The tools help people drive more productive human connections so they can be seen, heard and valued.
The Intentional environment
For the M.O.R.E approach to most effectively drive honest, insightful, open, thought-provoking and compassionate communication to empowering people to become catalysts for replacing judgmental behavior with incremental acts of understanding, the environment must enable it.
We look to help you define what that environment looks like through a framework that establishes virtues and actionable fundamentals. Not to tell people how to act, but to set expectations on how you expect the culture to be lived. This drives understanding and consistency to bring the best out of everyone. Ultimately, culture exists whether you are intentional about it or not.

Jaime Davern, CEO of Amplify Voices
"The training I did with Rodney and Keith was extremely vulnerable and empathetic. They gave me language to use so that I can fully express myself more often, be heard and most importantly listen, with love."
What I liked most about the session was the check in process at the beginning - that repeated exercise really drilled into me how to use "I hear you" in every conversation."
Gabriela Rodriguez, Costa Rica, (Large Tech Firm)
"The session with you was a good time to connect with other coworkers and have a space to explore more our cultural intelligence and the ways in which our behavior impacts our values of diversity and inclusion every day.
Diversity and Inclusion is a topic of daily discussion and the session was an opportunity to hear how everyone works, individually, to create an environment of engagement.
The session taught me that the first phase of effective engagement has a high level of tension, but after passing this phase, we are able to create a safe space for more compassionate communication.
Thanks a lot guys for your time and for share your knowledge with us!."
Justin Slagle, SoCal, (Large Tech Firm)
"Most important to me, your session helped me think about things differently. It opened my mind to new ways to think about diversity and inclusion, and that helps me think about my job and my team in different and more meaningful ways.
Also, I’ve been using box breathing in a few different scenarios and it has helped me stay calm. 😊"
