    Launching People Rocket

    In the 21st century you can't succeed alone. The "soft skills" of the 90's are now critical business drivers. People Rocket was launched to help inspirational leaders and teams that create innovative new ideas and communicate them in a way that inspires others.

    Academic Ties

    As the People Rocket team grew we expanded to include faculty at leading universities such as Stanford, London Business School, IMD, Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and many others around the world. We create impact with Designed Learning Experiences that blend art and science (social science and organizational psyhchology).

  • 2010-2014


    People Rocket started using applied improvisation and acting methods that increase performance in communication, presentation, innovation, transformation, creativity, and leadership. Building on that foundation we have added coaching techniques, toolkits, models and frameworks including Design Thinking, Instructional Design, Sustained Dialogue, Social and Organizational Psychology, Facilitation and Executive Coaching.
