New capabilities for a new era

We coach leaders as they develop the mindsets, skills, and systems to effectively manage change in volatile and uncertain conditions.


Our Approach

August helps leaders explore new mindsets and practices in areas of greatest impact: smarter and faster decision making; mobilizing teams around key business priorities; increasing transparency and information sharing; engaging and retaining top talent; and leveraging digital technology.

Leaders should expect to work through real challenges in 1-on-1 and Leadership Team coaching sessions, specific assignments with reflection and assessment, and workshops with direct reports. With new mindsets, practices and relationships in place, leaders can expect their teams’ progress to accelerate, and engagement survey results to improve.

Watch our conversation with August Board Member Amy C. Edmondson about psychological safety.

What is it? Why is it essential to developing successful organizations? What can leaders do to cultivate a psychologically safe culture?

Amy is the Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School and the author of The Fearless Organization: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth

Why August?

  • Leadership coaching is everywhere, and sometimes it’s even effective – but it mostly reinforces the management systems of yesteryear. Our approach to Leadership Development focuses on setting up leaders at every level for success in an adaptive, self-organized world.
  • We offer leaders practical solutions that build new habits, not lectures and hard-to-apply theory.
  • The practices we teach are deeply connected to our Organization Design and Team Acceleration solutions, adding leverage to other projects where August is a partner.

In the words of our partners

The work and partnership has been thoroughly enjoyable personally and professionally.  We are starting to see evidence every day that this is a meaningful and important mission for the company.

It’s been transformative - there’s no going back from here.

The August team is amazing. The skill, perspectives and thought processes that they've taught us are invaluable.
