The Black Lotus Ethos
At Black Lotus, we partner with our clients to create ways of doing business that are both effective and aligned to a right way of being:
Simplicity. Goals, plans, actions -- symmetry, balance, success
Patience. Knowing that strategy, action plans, and execution naturally flow from each other and inform one another in the next cycle
Compassion. Having the courage to achieve success via non-zero sum outcomes; going beyond win-win to create results that move organizations forward in the collective
