Our Team

Not your grandfather’s change management consultants.

We’re here to discover the opportunities hidden in the tension other firms won’t touch.

Our Collective Values

We believe values fulfill their purpose when they are grounded in reality rather than aspirational, when they emanate from the halls rather than simply posted on the walls, and when they are embodied as a choice rather than passively occurring.

Pressure is a Privilege

Adapt for Value

Thoughtfully Direct

Seek the Story

When things get difficult, we lean in. We embrace tension, revel in challenge, and turn towards the storm.

Needs are different for everyone, we adapt to ensure we're meeting needs, not just running programs.

Direct is kind, and we utilize directness as an avenue to be kind, thoughtfully. 

The change lies in the story and the patterns - we listen for the story behind the story - leading with understanding. 

Our Story

Co-Founders Dave Newell and Stephen Belenky founded Align Collective because they believe that companies like yours deserve better.

You shouldn’t have to pause on the margins that matter most, like cultural engagement and innovation, just because you’re in a season of transition.

Our team thrives within the context of pressure, which is the space where the best ideas are born and where legacy firms are least likely to meet you. We’re one part evaluator, one part strategist, one part implementation coach, and one part rollout team.

Align Collective is an alliance of like-minded, multidisciplinary management experts who believe that cultural risk aversion is the enemy of organizational growth and innovation.

Each contributor is uniquely qualified, collaborating with the other experts on the team to create a tailored consulting “recipe” for every engagement.
