About The New Agreements


On the surface, we are a consulting, training and leadership development company that does good work in the world. However, we are much more than that. We have developed a working model for the system-based, bottom/up transformation of any business, but with an emphasis on healthcare.

We are on a mission to spread the good news that an easily implemented higher-level leadership and management model has revealed itself to us. We call this model The New Agreements for Leaders. The engine which drives this model and especially the breakthrough 7 Tools, is Nobel Prize winning systems science. For most companies and certainly for healthcare, this model obsoletes six sigma, lean, lean sigma, Baldrige and other healthcare improvement programs. It also obsoletes most top/down leadership models. Why? Because the model creates genuine, systems-based transformation in the workplace that adds much more value for all stakeholders than legacy models.

Within The New Agreements are the roadmap and tools for the bottom/up, systems-based transformation in healthcare and basically any business or industry. Importantly, the roadmap includes a practical implementation strategy and practice than makes organizational transformation fast, easy, and front line driven. Facilitation of the New Agreements Tools easily and quickly transform systems while growing people. In the process care providers learn to be excellent leaders, managers, and problem solvers, regardless of title or role. They also become catalysts for genuine, systems-based transformation in healthcare or other industries.

Our vision is of thousands of kindred spirits around the world teaching this work in healthcare and other industries. We believe when enough organizations are being led and managed using this new model, we will reach a tipping point where business will become a catalyst for solving the great issues that face humanity and all life on the planet.
