• 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 a hybrid social enterprise that energizes individuals and institutions to flourish.


    We do this by providing contractual human resources, recruitment and retention services to assist companies in on-boarding new employees, coaching employees in transition, and developing the people, processes and spaces that matter to you.

  • 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 acclimate 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

    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.


    Companies flourish when they know how to maximize employee satisfaction and assess and address where corporate cultural ineptitude contributes to impediments to that satisfaction...


    Good to the SOUL is the solution.

Cultivating communal spaces for GOOD is an international initiative to develop intentional, short and long-term spaces where people care for themselves, one another and the world around us.



    We curate stories that dominant society has historically deemed to be "not good" by engaging storytellers on the proverbial margins to reclaim the goodness of their stories and enable the flourishing of GOOD throughout the universe.
