As new parents, Brian and I were discussing what key concepts we wanted to instill in our children. Of course we wanted them to have a lifelong love of learning, a healthy dose of self confidence, and respect for themselves, others and the world around them. Not knowing what their particular interests or skills would be, Brian said, “I just hope they use their powers for good.” And it stuck.
Since the best way to instill a behavior in a child is to model it yourself, we committed at that moment to use our own skills, experience and innate talents to improve our world and the lives of its inhabitants. We can’t fly, nor do we have super strength, but we do wear white hats and save damsels and gents in distress whenever we can.
Our Mission and Purpose
To be your partner through change development, elbow to elbow, all the way. Let’s use our powers for good.
Empowering your organization to improve the lives of Californians, every day.
Clear, concise, consistent communication is not optional.
We have great ideas. We think you do, too. Collaboration and respect are the keys to an innovative environment that moves everyone forward.
All our activities are completely open, including both what we are doing and why.
We do what we say we will, on time and on budget.
We do everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint. It’s how we live.
We do what needs to be done. Our dedication is your asset.
We really believe in what we are doing, and it sets us apart. It’s why we get up in the morning, and it’s why we smile. A lot.
We support our “tribe” and hold each other accountable to our own highest good. And we turn our cell phones off after 7 pm to enjoy uninterrupted hugs with our children.
