“Between stimulus and response, there is a space.
In that space is our power to choose a response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

THINKING ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH.
Whether you’re at the beginning, middle, or later stages of your career, being a confident and effective leader in today’s global context – and being perceived as one – requires more than cognitive knowledge and content expertise. Effective leadership requires a Deep Stream presence.
Our offerings and approaches are honed from 10 years of coaching, facilitating, and designing/delivering workshops on Interpersonal Skills, Leadership, and Diversity and Inclusion at Stanford University Graduate School of Business and Berkeley Haas School of Business.
What is Deep Stream leadership?
Deep Stream Leadership emphasizes leadership and influence that are firmly anchored in both internal and external skills and competencies, including awareness of interpersonal and group dynamics that can make or break team and organizational performance.
Inspiring and engaging people – and teams – across language, culture, and other dimensions of difference.
Navigating challenging – and often unexpected – situations that involve misunderstanding, conflict, and/or unintended impact.
Repairing trust and safety and rebuilding connection when misunderstanding, judgment, and reactivity derail us from our shared goals and purpose.
