Our Approach

At Aculasek Consulting, we build high performance teams, develop effective managers, engage talent, and generate thriving company cultures.  Our approach is grounded in three core principles:

  • At the center of all endeavors we are human beings -- not assets or resources
  • Our behavior is guided by our emotions
  • We live in a particular culture

Our Story

In late 2002, the company started with an "aha" moment.  Having hired and worked with numerous management consultants in the past, the founders realized a problem:  consultants seem to be forgetting they were working with humans.  The workforce was treated as a "resource," and senior leaders offered cookie-cutter solutions -- as if people could be fixed like a machine.  In response, Aculasek Consulting was launched as a boutique organizational development consulting company focused on building high performance teams.

Our first promise?  We work with human beings.

Meet the Principles

We are diverse as the clients we serve, each of us offering a unique set of skills to meet the needs of our company and those with whom we partner.
