“Mathias just gets it. During a massive organizational change initiative, Mathias naturally pushed conversations forward. He identified the core idea in challenging conversations and built agreement in the room by honoring each person’s contributions and perspectives.”

Brenda Darden Wilkerson, CEO,

“Mathias skillfully facilitated workshops with senior managers and global leaders that surfaced thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that were preventing us from collectively meeting our stated goals. He was often navigating intense dynamics, yet found a way to help us see collective opportunities by making room for each of our experiences to be validated and understood.

Carrie Olmstead, Director of Modernization Delivery

“Mathias showed me how to lead. He made me believe in myself in a transformative, non-fleeting way. His empowering approach and the wake of his partnership brought deep, long-standing change to me, my teams, and everyone around him. We had no idea that our leadership could look or feel the way it does now and we are fully committed to carrying it forward for the good of our teams.”

Kevin Bowers, VP of Engineering
