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.
Daily Inspiration
"Success is not a matter of mastering subtle, sophisticated theory, but rather of embracing common sense with uncommon levels of discipline and persistence."
