But what's with the pineapple? 

We Got Vitamin C Vibes! 

Culture Circle is necessary for growth, development, and repair. We keep the company's immunity healthy, provide healing, and keep the culture's overall structure solid.

What We Value.


We use the best parts of
our humanity within all we


I am because we are.


We are mindful of energy
and how it is used to
achieve the desired

How We Do business.

We do business differently.

We won't work with everyone, but when we do, we go all in.

This means that we don't tack on for spending extra time during an advisory session, or we'll host a workshop if we see it's really needed at no cost.

It's like this; we put extra fries at the bottom of the bag, so just when you think they're gone, you are happily surprised with more.


Lastly, we are intuitive, and it's been one of our greatest benefits to our clients. We bring the lunar (intuition/woo-woo) and the linear ( data-driven/analytical/tangible) together to create a holistic approach to workplace culture.


Culture Circle was birthed from an experience from the Founder's homeless in the workplace experience and has been cultivated and cared for by humans that understand how deeply impactful the workplace can be in our daily lives.

Our why is simple. Humanity.

We have this idea that one of the best ways to impact the world is to ensure that each human first understand their humanity and are treated like human. So many antiquated and outdated work methodologies go against that; yielding humans is the workplace that doesn't feel they have a voice, oppressed, depressed, functional zombies that go out into the world and their home spaces only to treat others the same. That cycle won't help our humanity.

So, out of a love for humanity and passion for seeing successful companies do what they do best, Culture Circle does what it does.
