Big firms no longer work for you.

You asked for innovation, more "lived-in" experience, and a different way of thinking.


They gave you processes to deal with operated by people who put process above understanding the work itself.


You asked for both efficiency and a partner who knows when to regroup and rethink the strategy.


They gave you consistency and a bureaucratic culture that is polite without being all that helpful, and segmented without being all that accessible.


You asked for people that get your organization and all the nuances that come with it.


They gave you boilerplate, what's cost-effective, what's delegable to a less adaptable consultant, and what they gave to 20 organizations “just like you."


Align Collective was created by people too committed to reproduce a broken playbook.

Our Story
Our Approach

Pressure is a privilege

Our advantage can be your advantage: 



We lead with curiosity, we understand how and why certain practices work, and we can work outside of the processes to provide relevant value beyond the checklist. 



We have more knowledge and experience for you to access, we genuinely care about you, and we feel the stakes in every project, which has us desire success like it could be our last.



We are serious about what we do because we love what we do, we live our own culture out loud, we value impact over scale, and are called to solve new problems in new ways.


We choose radical experience and adaptability over traditional paths, culture and alignment over strategy and process, and brand-elevating approaches over cookie-cutter playbooks.


We're not whole on our promise to you if you haven't claimed a story that aligns everyone, established a culture that flows through the halls, and woven systems and leadership to maximize the moment.


Pressure is a privilege, direct is kind, and compassion is fundamental. We turn towards the fire, not because it satisfies our personalities but because that's how we make the biggest difference for you.

Our team is designed to work for you.
Our Team

Co-Founders Dave Newell and Stephen Belenky had an idea, to throw out the old playbook and design a team that cares as much about the inputs as they do about the outputs, and that can match the needs of any given client.

We bring extraordinary talent to leaders around the world navigating growth, transition, or rollout. Every consultant is senior-level, shares our values, and has lived-in experience. It's our "unfair advantage" at creating the conditions to optimize your "BIG" moment.
