Welcome to the Consultant & Practitioner Alliance (CAPA)
The focus of CAPA is two-fold:
- To help you improve your ability to serve your clients, whether you're an independent consultant working with CEOs of small or medium-sized businesses, an internal HR or OD person serving a business unit manager, an executive coach, a trainer or any other kind of practitioner related to organizational health.
- To provide you with a sense of support and community with people who share the same goal: to help leaders change the world of work so that organizations can be more effective and less dysfunctional, and employees can be more fulfilled and less miserable.
"Success is not a matter of mastering subtle, sophisticated theory, but rather of embracing common sense with uncommon levels of discipline and persistence."
