We're Committed

To Creating Space

Space for reflection and learning. For tough and tender conversations. For connection and relationship. Space for reshaping culture, refining vision, and redefining what’s possible. Space for impact. Space for change.

Our Vision

That companies and communities are expansive spaces – full of opportunity and belonging for all.

Our Mission

To create trust-filled and growth-focused spaces where everyone gets to get better.

We believe in the power of eager learning.

Reframing old information in new ways
Embracing challenging contexts
Exploring complex questions and collaborative solutions

We believe in the power of earnest connection.

Creating trust-filled learning spaces
Seeking the threads of similarity that tie us together
Honoring the nuances of our unique identities

A space creator™ facilitator shows up to:

Support Reflectivity

Change starts with individuals. Every leader, manager, and team member is invited and inspired to explore their who, their why, and their what’s next.


Provoke Engagement

Stepping into the discomfort of tough conversations is hard. But embracing new perspectives allows us to shift from conflict to collaboration.


Accept Ownership

It’s not about us versus them; it’s about us. We acknowledge and own our shared challenges and opportunities with courage and conviction.



The power of “what’s possible if…” is compelling and palpable. We lean into that power when we dream beyond our current ruts, risks, and rewards.



It’s all about getting better. We empower and enable individual change-agents, and redesign organizational practices, policies, and procedures.


In everything we do, we work to create space.
