Our Philosophy


We are former big firm consultants and executives who concluded after years of implementing major change, the standard approach to leading and managing it could be better.
Our experience showed us that successful change was built upon three core elements that must work in harmony together — autonomy, leadership and learning.

The most successful change is led and managed from within. That’s why our approach is centered on building change capability. By unlocking the potential of internal project teams, we ensure that the people assigned to implement your initiatives have the knowledge, skills and perspective required now and for the future.


Leadership is essential for change success. Most organizations manage change. They apply a standard set of processes and tools to push projects along, keep them under control and minimize disruptions. Change leadership is fundamentally different. Our focus ensures your leaders understand and apply this difference to achieve the broader vision and strengthened capability required to sustain success.


A learning mindset is essential to solving the problems required to create and sustain change. That’s why learning is built into each element of our approach. We use it to improve capability and to accelerate current results.



Solleva means “lift” in Italian (a culture well-known for embracing change).  And that’s our mission.  To lift our clients’ capability and understanding.  We help organizations create success in their current initiatives and elevate their know-how for the future.

We believe change is more than simply completing projects.  It offers organizations a chance to learn and grow in the process of lifting capability.
