HHART model

When climbing a high-altitude mountain, the journey begins when you acclimate yourself at basecamp, not just with your first step on the ascent.


The HHART-first framework is a people-centered leadership framework to take teams higher and farther by acclimating the best and brightest leaders and teams to healthy conflict, honest communication, and cultures of acceptance, trust, and respect.

Brought to you by leaders in action, mountaineers at heart

Born from 15 years of experience working with and for organizations in a leadership position, the HHART-first leadership framework has been described as if Brene Brown and Patrick Lencioni had a baby, and its godfathers were Simon Sinek and Adam Grant.

Most organizations fail their
people because they spend too
little time at basecamp

They rush and push. Everyone is walking on eggshells to avoid stepping on each other’s toes. Things are getting lost in communication. Even if they do reach their final mountaintop, they wasted exorbitant amounts of energy and efficiency backtracking (not to mention the altitude sickness). 


We help people within organizations learn how to have healthy conflict, honest communication, and build cultures of acceptance, respect, and trust to accomplish previously insurmountable goals.


What peaks can you climb when you implement HHART-first foundations?


The journey to every mountaintop begins with a single step.
