How we hire

Only the right people will make the right firm and the right change:

  • We’re out to get you: the few, the proud but not egotistical, the… wait, not the M… the Catalysts, Analysts, Evangelists of a new way.
  • We will leave the fickle and the paycheck-seeker, the careerist and the drone, the faint of heart and the care bear to the competition.

A rite of passage : Interviews only show who is good at interviews… So we don’t do interviews:

  • It will take some time. Our journey will take 8 to 12 weeks, depending on how fast and available you are.
  • It will take some effort. The endeavor will require the equivalent of 5 to 10 full days of work from you.
  • It will take some guts.  The experience will ask the best of you, as a professional and as a human being.
  • At the end of our exploration, you may be a new professional, and maybe even a changed person.

Steps towards one another : You need to pick us as much as we pick you… We give you everything to decide:

  • We will interact and communicate many times, in many ways, throughout this journey together.
  • We will learn about each others’ stories, influences, aspirations, strengths, weaknesses, and styles.
  • We will all show who we are, what we stand for, what we got and how we connect and achieve results.

A legacy in the making : Every day is an opportunity to build our legacy… We will, together, build something to be proud of:

  • We will find a problem we all care about, and take a bite size – something we can tackle fast.
  • We will share the workload in a way that gets to discover one another as we work towards our goal.
  • We will produce and package something, however small, that can be useful to, and used by, all of us.

You will join our merry community as Catalyst, Analyst or Evangelist, and live our consulting 3.0 lifestyle.
If you don’t, you will have learned a lot about yourself, and will be a lot clearer then, about what you can, and want to do.
You may join our circle of friends, because after going through it all, you probably want and can help us change the world.
