About Us

TimeZero helps individuals, organizations, and communities flourish.

We believe

… that nature’s wisdom – including innate human wisdom – is an excellent guide for developing and leading organizations to operate as healthy and prosperous. Organizations are living systems, and living systems innately know how to create conditions for flourishing – that is, how to structure themselves to ensure the flow of ideas, resources, and energy, so that they can grow and thrive.

We know …

that there is so much potential in you and your people.

A call to action

Flourishing organizations and communities are innovative, productive, profitable, and healthy because people show up whole, connected to themselves, each other, the world, and the planet.

All organizations are capable of flourishing when conditions are conducive.
Creating those conditions is the most crucial work.

Inspired by the work of Chilean biologist, Humberto Maturana, our own company name highlights two fundamental truths: that the only real time we have to create conditions for thriving organizations and communities is NOW, and that NOW is exactly the time to do so.

Your organizational soul

You DO know who you are. But along the stressful path to making an impact, you may have lost your center – the ability to channel that organizational soul for true thriving.

We can’t help but live in a constantly changing environment, but we can rely on our true center to help us adapt in healthy, sustainable ways. With the right assistance, you can remember how to evolve in support of your goals.

You’ve probably been asked a hundred times: What’s your “why”? Let’s frame that question more particularly: What is the real impact you are trying to create? What binds your people together in service of that purpose? Is everyone in your organization living in a way that will allow you to advance your strategy?

You’re not alone.

We have all had the experience of trying to address challenges created by competing needs, and end up getting stuck, or worse, polarized. What if those tensions could be leveraged to effectively channel the essential flow of energy and resources that contribute to your prosperity?

It may not feel like it, but you already have the power.

And it’s not only OK to begin where you are, it’s essential! You’ve already figured out that “high performance” is not the same thing as “good health”. Organizational success comes not through “driving outcomes” but through starting where the good energy already exists in an organization, and together, creating the conditions that allow for continual adaptation in service of your organization’s and your people’s flourishing.

TimeZero meets you were you are – where the appetite for change is already emerging in your organization – and helps you to nourish and support your unique evolution, and to expand your focus beyond the assumptions that are keeping you from your potential.

What a relief!

You’re looking for more than just another “expert”. You need a breath of fresh air. TimeZero has tools, insights, and strategies to share, but more than that, we bring acceptance. For who and where you are. From a nonjudgmental guide who honestly believes in your potential, and in the intrinsic energy and power that your personal and organizational wellbeing will yield.

The focus and presence with which we approach our work means we are not here to drive yet another process or facilitate toward an agenda. Instead, we help you find where the work is that needs support. We bring open hearts and deep respect. We bring the ability to hold the tensions that are inherent in and required for your success, and an invitation to you to look at them through new lenses that will assist your natural, healthy evolution.

Most of all, we offer you relief – from overwhelm, from the need for control, from the self-talk and conditioning that keeps you from seeing yourself and your organization as whole, capable and visionary.

You ARE whole, capable and visionary. And courageous.

You deserve to experience work as joyful, productive, and meaningful. Each of you, and all of you together. TimeZero is here to help you build and sustain resilience, agility and trust, enhance communication and collaboration, and foster engagement and connected leadership.
