Elevate humanity where it matters most.

(And have fun while we do it.)

Our Story

We started our journey 25 years ago delivering parenting workshops driven by a purpose to bring out the best in children by starting with the parents first. When a parent recommended that we take our workshops to the workplace, we jumped at the opportunity to equip leaders and their teams to experience what was invaluable for our parents.


Our Beliefs

We are serious about delivering an experience that is unlike any other. We hold ourselves accountable to what we believe and promise. Here is what drives us every day and in every decision. As with the thousands of teams we’ve partnered with, we’re deeply honored to be considered to deliver this to you. Here’s why.


Our Manifesto

Verus Global was founded and built upon the belief that people want to be great. Each of us possess the wisdom and potential to do brilliant and inspired things in the world.  Our passion is to inspire and activate that which already exists within people.

We believe that changing behaviors is not an intellectual exercise – but the business of the heart.

Verus Global is grounded in the research of human behavior, motivation and performance.  We are here to elevate humanity where it matters most, and insist that the workplace can be a source of personal growth and fulfillment – and that such work cultures are the most effective at delivering improved performance. We know that a whole person is a better person and a greater leader.

We are worthy of the trans-formative change we are contributing to the world. Our commitment to advance the practice of collaborative leadership is one to which we dedicate our focused and inspired efforts. Our beliefs show up in our interactions, our processes, our talent and our delivery.  Together, we live our values and truths impeccably, not because we have to, but because we care so deeply about each other and the value we’re bringing to our client-partners, community and world.

We are – and insist on always being – ONE Team.

Equipping teams to do BIG things requires wickedly talented human beings

to create, execute and support the solutions we are honored to deliver to our client partners.  To nail this, we focus on three areas:


Heart is what we look for because this is what fuels our focus on bringing humanity to work and beyond.



Growth is how we keep improving. When our team is elevating their potential, it accelerates our ability to grow humanity practices at work. 


Fun is what fuels heart and mind. We make sure we have fun while getting stuff done.
