System & Soul

System & Soul – Clarity. Control. Breakthrough.

System & Soul gives you the structure, language, and processes you need to manage your business while honoring the soul – why you created it in the first place, the culture you want for your employees, and what best motivates your clients. When both system and soul align – that’s the ultimate competitive advantage.

We understand the challenge of running a business while maintaining a clear direction and a steady course.

As you grow, scale, and expand your team, what worked in the early stages won’t get you out of the chaos and change you’re experiencing now. System & Soul will help you get where you want to go and do so more quickly.

System

Systems create durability and sustainability. A defined system allows you to cultivate talent, avoid solving the same problem twice, delegate responsibility, and focus on what matters most.

Soul

Nothing fuels innovation and growth like a soul alive and in sync with its design. System & Soul is the only framework that merges the power of the system and the inspiration of the soul of your business to innovate and excel.

System & Soul Experiences For the American Foundation for the Blind Team

“The System & Soul process has benefitted our leadership team through clearly mapping out our organizational structure across all of our business units in a way that further clarifies accountability. This clarity has helped us all work in sync toward achieving our core objectives.”

Eric Bridges, President & CEO
American Foundation for the Blind

“One thing that stands out about the value of S2 is the ease with which projects, progress, and accomplishments are tracked. Not only does it keep the most critical priorities at the forefront but it is also invaluable to informing the staff performance evaluation process. In addition, the quarterly refuels not only advance our mission but also strengthen and help bond our team by providing an opportunity to work together on identifying the most important priorities for the coming quarter.”

Sonya Shiflet, Chief People & Planning Officer
American Foundation for the Blind

“For those managing a department that works collaboratively with multiple units across the organization, the S2 process has been quite beneficial for developing a workflow that allows for programatic traction, particularly when bandwidth is tight with multiple competing interests.”

Tony Stephens, Director of Communications, American Foundation for the Blind

“The quarterly cadence of structured planning activities not only advances our effectiveness and collaboration, but it also — by providing an opportunity to work together on identifying the most important priorities for the coming quarter — ensures we are working on what will bring the most immediate value and return on our investment.” 

Matthew Janusauskas, Chief Technology & Workforce Programs Officer, American Foundation for the Blind
