About Polaris Principles
Your Trusted Guide to Navigate Life and Work
Polaris Principles is a management consulting company offering a unique approach to leadership development. We believe strength and depth of relationships are the defining measures of success. We have seen when leaders learn how to communicate better, confront and resolve conflict, break down barriers, and create psychologically safe cultures for their employees, it translates into enhanced trust, happier employees, and better work-life balance—not to mention lower turnover, increased effectiveness, quality, and service.
Through workshops and one-on-one coaching, Polaris Principles helps each participant recognize and actualize their purpose, potential, and opportunities for growth. Simulations, group experiential learning practices, and personal coaching help to identify, develop, and apply new skills and habits for growth, change, and successful navigation through today’s rapidly evolving business climate.
