Paradox is an elite advisor to CEOs and investors, focused on CEO performance and the human side of transformation. We help CEOs and investors transform their organizations, their teams, and themselves – as a personal advisor and strategist. We tackle really hard, highly sensitive transformation, leadership and human systems change challenges.
We are unique in that we apply expertise in the non-adjacent areas of business strategy and human behavior (psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, systems theory, social networks). Our greatest impact is achieved with organizations navigating significant change – rapid growth, JVs and M&A, startup ventures, CEO/top-team transition, global expansion, convergence, disruption & technology innovation.
We engage clients in practical, thoughtful, confidential conversations on aspects of corporate and organizational life that have complex psychological and systemic underpinnings, and that can’t readily be discussed with anyone else.
Our clients include most prestigious and demanding private equity and venture capital firms, and their portfolio companies. We also work with fortune 100 companies facing disruption to accelerate transformation and help them get unstuck.
We advise investors and leaders in high stakes situations who are:
- In charge of large, growth, startup or social institutions facing complex strategic, operating or organizational challenges….CEOs, Chairman, Corporate Directors, Investors, Entrepreneurs, Senior Executives
- Often at some stage of a CEO/leadership handoff…. Whether planning is in its early stages or the new CEO has just taken over.
- Implementing changes to the organization's strategy… whether a successful company getting back on track in times of seismic change or one on a roll deciding how to scale up, remain successful, disrupt or pave a new path, we become involved when changes to structure, systems, and processes alter how the organization operates so fundamentally that its culture and organizational behavior must change.
Trustworthy, Candid, Brave leadership – we speak truth to power and take contrarian points of view, Edgy, Creative, Innovative, Insightful, Cutting edge, Modern/Contemporary
We are the Mckinsey/Bain/BCG for the really thorny organization, culture, managing exponential change and people challenges, but with more creativity, innovation and a more modern edge. We always deliver excellence, but we’re more 21st century cutting edge than 20th century traditional.
