Our Logo

Just like people and organizations, butterflies go through multiple life cycles.  The transformation process of a butterfly is called metamorphosis and the entire four-stage life cycle can take up to a year.  People and organizations also undergo transformation in stages.  Each stage is different. Each stage has a different goal.  Our butterfly logo is meant to represent transformation- it is meant to convey the concept planned change.  The multiple colors represent the rich diversity metamorphosis often yields.  Invite us to join you and your team to assist you in your own transformation.
