The quality of our lives

Simple.
Powerful. Profound.

Council is a simple but powerful tool that shifts communication to be more authentic, heartfelt and productive. It can be used to foster connection in any setting: schools, businesses, prisons, non-profits, and to enhance personal or professional relationships.

  • Foster authentic communication

  • Invite engagement and empathy

  • Increase cross-cultural awareness and inclusiveness

  • Deepen connections with students, staff, colleagues, or within your family

  • On-board new employees

  • Navigate changes and challenges

  • Mark significant transitions and milestones
