Fierce changes the way business is done. And the way lives are lived.
As leaders in professional development and training, we transform cultures. We grow communication and leadership skills in organizations and educational institutions of all sizes. Then we make sure those new skills transfer to the job – and become the way things get done.
What is a Fierce Conversation?
The simplest definition of a Fierce conversation is one in which authentic, honest, and direct conversations take place. While many fear real, it is the overlooked conversations that ought to concern us. They are incredibly expensive.

Our Core Values
Sure there are seven of them. And not a single one more important than the other. We use them to help our decision making become easier and drive our vision and our mission.
Live the Brand
Working at Fierce requires steadfast commitment. We apply our principles and practices to everything we do. While we aren’t superhuman, we quickly recognize when we’ve “fallen off the wagon” and aspire to rejoin our comrades sooner rather than later.
We are nothing if not passionate. There is something within each of us that compels us to do this work—to dedicate our lives to improving leaders, individuals, schools, organizations, and communities. We believe in what we do and the difference it makes.
There is no faking it at Fierce. We present ourselves—our capabilities and our knowledge—exactly as we are. We don’t pretend to be anything we aren’t. We are transparent with each other and our clients, and we embrace what makes each of us unique.
We recognize that no one person owns the “truth” about anything. Diverse perspectives improve decision-making, provoke learning, and expand possibilities. So, we take advantage of every opportunity to collaborate, internally and with our clients. By partnering with our clients, we find ourselves richer with every interaction.
Innovate with Intention
Fierce has made a splash since the moment we took our name. Few organizations have presented such originality, creativity, and forward thinking. We aim to keep it that way.
We are a playful bunch with genuine affection for one another. Our work environment is often filled with laughter, and we are never short of reasons to celebrate. We appreciate the energy this brings to the office. And we incorporate an element of fun into everything we do.
Deliver Great Service, Always
We pride ourselves on the profound experience we provide our clients. We have never been ones to back down from a challenge. Faced with adversity, we employ resourcefulness, creativity, and sheer determination to fulfill each and every promise we make—no matter what.
