Ē is for
Ēlumin.āt is about building empathy, the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within the other person’s point of view. That’s what makes ēlumin.āt different.
We help leaders problem-solve by first understanding you. All problem-solving is inherently local. That’s where the first-hand knowledge of the problems lie. And that’s where the energy, enthusiasm, and ingenuity to solve the problem should originate as well.
Ēlumin.āt helps you to create a better future with more of what works best for you.
We specialize in creating the framework for a comfortable, safe, and inclusive environment to guide you as you identify, elaborate on, and resolve your most challenging problems. Because we are skilled problem-solvers ourselves, we understand that the secret to solving problems is enabling those who own the problems to solve them - themselves.
Who knows better than you what solutions will work in your organization? Who should be more empowered than you to own those solutions in order to take them forward and bring them to fruition?
We help you get the most creative thoughts from your team. Ēlumin.āt uses design thinking methodologies to develop solutions from inside your organization by helping your team identify the problems you are trying to solve and coaching them through the creative decision-making process. The result is more powerful solutions more finely attuned to your goals, your mission, and your landscape.
Unlike other consultants, we aren’t going to bring you a prepackaged solution.
We exist to help you create custom solutions that will work for you.
