About Leg Up Solutions
Leg Up Solutions is a consultancy dedicated to helping organizations realize enterprise excellence. The inspiration for Leg Up Solutions comes from a quote by Stephen Jay Gould, a Harvard professor and world-renowned evolutionary biologist: “I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain, than I am in the certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in the cotton fields and sweatshops.” This translates exceptionally well to the Leg Up Solutions’ tagline “find the BRILLIANCE in your WORK FORCE” and motto “We don’t train people…We develop leaders you didn’t know you had.”
Leg Up Solutions’ style pulls enterprise excellence from the shop floor and into the workshop, study tour, or site visit, and delivers an unparalleled learning experience that anchors concepts through the power of experience and reflection. The process in each case is designed to challenge participants in an extremely safe learning environment.
