• About Us

    We are your partner in problem solving and energizing your people to flourish.


    Human flourishing is critical to the health and well-being of everything.


    Where people flourish,

    they live GOOD lives,

    they produce GOOD work,

    and they impact the business bottom line for GOOD.


    Good to the SOUL
    is an emergent social enterprise that

    energizes individuals and institutions to flourish.


    Many of the individuals we energize are people who find themselves at crossroads of life, personally or professionally.


    Many of the institutions we energize to flourish are churches and centers for faith life. Other institutions we energize are colleges and universities, small to medium size nonprofits, and small businesses that employ under 50 employees.


    In addition to contractual human resources, we help clients understand and enhance their cultural competency, assess and address their commitments to human flourishing, while holding space for the "spirit of universal living" (S.O.U.L.).”



  • Our Business Philosophy

    We help companies develop their greatest assets-
    the people who show up to work everyday.

    By assessing and addressing toxic corporate culture,

    providing tools to rehabilitate mediocre employee performance,
    and acclimating new hires to company values,

    we energize employees and companies to flourish.



    According to Gallup's "State of the American Workplace," 70% of US employees aren't showing up to work ready to flourish and those who do show up ready must confront organizational cultures that are riddled with impediments to human flourishing.


    The Problem

    By 2024, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that historically marginalized communities, particularly LGBTQIA, differently-abled, and racial-ethnic minorities will comprise more than 60% of the labor population.
    With the influx of these cultural variances, cultural incompetence creates hurdles and blind-spots for businesses and organizations to mitigate disruptions to human flourishing- literally sucking the soul out of their greatest asset- their people.


    The Solution

    We believe that individuals flourish when they know how to confidently bring their diverse life skills and experiences into the workplace in ways that enable them to lead from their cultural strengths.


    We know that companies flourish when they maximize team member satisfaction and assess and address where corporate cultural ineptitude contributes to impediments to that satisfaction...


    Good to the SOUL is the solution.
