About Us

Our Timeline

Our Story

We are Change Partners. This name sums up well our main focus for almost a quarter of a century – to be a worthy partner for our clients in implementing changes and developing people.

The story of our company began in 1997 when we started to bring innovative DiSC® personality development tools (USA) to the Baltic states. From that moment on, it has been part of our DNA to know that successful change starts with people and that our behavior has an important role to play in it.

From 2008 we partnered with Implement Consulting Group, Scandinavia’s largest management consulting firm. Added to our DNA became knowledge that achieving long-term change requires transforming organizational culture and that managers play a key role in this. To date, we have helped to implement more than 50 successful organizational culture development projects in the Baltics, many of which have been mentioned and awarded in public.

In 2018 we became a partner to the world’s leading change management expert Prosci (USA) in the Baltic and Finnish markets. Today, we carry out unique development projects with many leading organizations. We combine training, consulting and globally proven development solutions, bringing the best knowledge to our clients about what has helped thousands of organizations achieve success.

In 2021, our range of global solutions was supplemented by Leadership Pipeline solutions, when we became a partner of the Leadership Pipeline Institute in the Baltic States. We are convinced that strong leadership is the basis of every successful business. By combining our global and local experience, we help leading companies in the Baltics to define and develop a strong leadership culture, for the development of flexible and efficient organizations, using Leadership Pipeline’s unique approach and solutions.

Our Ambition

Making Organizations both More Productive, and More Humane

Our Way

We believe in change. But any change is only as successful as are the people adopting the change. This does not happen by chance. We bring to you a best-practice-based and structured change management approach to help to lead people through change.

Why you should work with us?

We believe in being your partners not simply providers of service. We strive for the highest quality possible and are always busy improving our skills to stay ahead. 90% of our clients are returning customers.
