You have an idea That depends on a considerable number of people

EMBRACING SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT

 

We believe that the world is full of powerful intentions that get fulfilled at only a small fraction of their potential.

who we are

A world of difference exists in the gap between fulfilling an intention at an acceptable level and fulfilling it at the upper end of what's possible. That gap is where we live. It's what we think about. What we inquire about. And what we work on with ever-increasing degrees of understanding.

We come to work each day to do one thing - fulfill intentions.

what we do

We are a change management company that has yet to find any boundaries for our work. Simply, we are hired to help people embrace something new and different. We know there is a hidden capacity in your intention for change - a potential that is not yet evident or active.

Our job is to help you impart the awareness, deep understanding and ownership within others to do something new.

 

how we do it

It is a matter of looking for the best expression of someone, somewhere, to some extent, doing something that's somewhat like what you are looking for. And then, at the level of daily routines and influential connections, working toward having everyone, everywhere, to a great extent, doing everything very much like what you had in mind. 

To do this, we focus on helping you say exactly what you are looking for, and then using those best expressions to build the capacity for everyone to contribute at the top end of their potential.

The few and the many
 

You have spent a lot of time thinking about an idea, or new way of doing things. 

And the many don't get it, aren't doing it or don't care because they are busy dealing with what is right in front of them.

This problem exists because between the few and the many there is a chasm. It is a chasm which opens because the few have spent months or years building context for why this something new and different is so important. And the many have none of that context.

Our job is to help you cross the chasm and realize the potential value in a considerable number of people learning to embrace your something new and different.

Everything starts with the right combination of three practices

ARTICULATION PRACTICE

Achieving what you set out to achieve by saying what you meant to say.

INQUIRY PRACTICE

Achieving what you set out to achieve by uncovering what is available to build capacity.

MOBILIZATION PRACTICE

Achieving what you set out to achieve by contributing at the top end of your potential.

the company name

The “4” in sr4 represents our three founders plus you, anytime you’re working with us. The “sr” is something we don’t talk about much – but, well, the “s” stands for “subsume” and the “r” for “resonate.” Thus, our company name is a code that can be roughly translated into this ever-present sentiment: When you work with us, you become part of our name, we subsume our identity to yours, and we always seek to resonate with your intentions toward fulfillment.
