Our story.


Our mission is to accelerate transformations.

Your life is a unique blend of different elements: career, community, friendship, family, and wellbeing. And it's by integrating all of these elements in harmony that true transformation and change is possible.

We help transform lives using what we call the "JPV Index":
(Bring) Joy

We have a deep sense of joy as we derive fulfillment from our work and lives. We help others to find and prioritize the things that bring them joy. We do not compromise, or ask that anyone compromise, that which brings us/them joy.

Passion-Driven Productivity

We produce high-quality results because we are passionate about what we do. If we are not passionate about it, we don't do it.

Value from Strengths

Internally, we leverage our strengths to bring the most value to our clients. With our clients, we help them identify their and their team's strengths so that they can work together more effectively and increase the value of whatever project they take on.
