Our Name…

Bricolage is a French concept that captures well our approach to leadership development. It refers to the process of creating something new for a particular purpose, out of parts that were intended originally for another use. As such, ‘bricolage’ implies a process that is both highly creative, requiring thinking outside-the-box, and thoroughly pragmatic in its focus on addressing a particular need with the materials one has at hand.

In bricolage-like fashion, when we work with a client, we begin where the client is at. We carefully assess everything that the client brings to the table—the unique collection of skills, experience, strengths, challenges and personal characteristics—and we help the client get clear on the kind of leadership they need to offer. We then work with the client to close that gap, creatively building on the client’s existing foundation and specific strengths to achieve the desired results.
