Wise ConferenceHi there! We’re Barton and Megan Cutter.

When was the last interaction that left you looking at the world
in a completely new light?

Wouldn’t it be amazing for your own leadership to and leave others with that same transformative feeling?

Take a moment to think about it.

Words, action, and presence all have the potential to empower and dis-empower others, whether they are our co-workers, potential clients or neighbors.


Here’s the Deal:

What we say does matter, and how we say it matters even more.

With so much chatter out there, it’s important to know how to show up and connect with those who share your passion to make the ripples out in the world that envision.

Whether through organizational consulting, team and individual coaching, speaking, or group workshops, we will reveal a world of new possibilities, to give you the tools to bring out the best in your professional partnerships.

Not only do we offer we work hands-on to provide clients with experiential learning opportunities, and leadership development, we also provide exceptional program design and content development services.

Our inclusive leadership coaching and workshops unveils the tools you need to empower every relationship with impeccable clarity, communication, and action.

Potential clients don’t just want to know about your services any more, they want to know about you. Everyone has challenges they’ve had to overcome to get to where they are. What are yours?

We’ve had experience speaking and leading others in an inclusive environment that values each member of the community, utilizing their strengths and overcoming challenges.

We’ve also had our fair share of challenges.

As an inter-ability couple, we’ve overcome assumptions that Megan is Barton’s caretaker, and that we would never make it, as a couple nor in our business. Yet, through our coaching, consulting, and writing, we inspire others to realize that transformation and success is possible.
