What We Do

We work as advisors, coaches, and consultants to help sharpen strategies, retool practices, and build aligned and engaged teams at the leadership and board level.

Each engagement, like each client, is unique and may have more than one area of focus – we are typically sought out during times of change for help in these areas:

Our engagements typically range in length from 6 weeks to 6 months, which provides the time and focus to help create lasting change. However, we occasionally take on one-off projects for leaders with more focused needs including:

  • Meeting Design & Facilitation – Leadership off-sites, large-scale retrospectives, and board meetings.

  • Team Enablement – Mindset and mechanics of quality “agile” teaming for technical and non-technical teams.

  • Executive Coaching – Individualized development programs to become the leader your organizations needs.


What Makes Us Different

Ethical Ventures was founded out of a unique and complementary partnership between Lisa Lewin and Bob Gower.

Our work is animated by a belief that organizations can change the world. However we’ve seen too many world-changing organizations fail to reach their full potential because they either lack operational discipline, or are bound by paradigms that no longer work in today’s volatile and complex environment.

Our experience combines traditional work at the highest levels of the academy and business, with experimental and innovative work from startups and the leading edges of organization design and systems theory.

Our commitments to you:

  • We will work with you to design a program suited to your needs, scale, and budget.

  • We will help you achieve clarity about what can be done, AND build the capacity to take make it real.

  • We will never take on any project that doesn’t meet the necessary pre-conditions for success.

  • Your project will get focused attention, personally, from Lisa and Bob.
