About Us

About the company, the logo, and our mission to help create win-win solutions for as many stakeholders as possible.

Our Company & Mission

Madera Partners Consulting is a boutique firm based 20 miles west of Boston, Massachusetts USA.
We are senior-level executive coaches and organizational consultants with extensive backgrounds in psychology, family business, management and talent management consulting.

Our Mission

We are inspired to discover win-win solutions, and we specialize in supporting leaders who want to be more positive-minded and emotionally attuned.
We have seen the amazing results of this approach and make the effort to bring out the best in ourselves and our clients.

When we partner with our clients successfully:

  • Leaders make better decisions about their people... selecting, engaging and developing them to fulfill organizational missions.

  • Leaders consider more options and take action to enable others to do their best work.

  • Leaders and their teams remove obstacles and get to optimal performance, faster and easier.

  • Leaders design and deliver experiences in meetings and retreats to tap team members' energy and motivation to excel.

       Our Logo's Secret Meaning

Making change and development happen is, in our experience, always a more interactive experience than it initially seems.

One way to illustrate this is in our logo, which has a secret message, hidden in plain sight, in the green space of the arrow/tree.
(If you squint you can see that the green space depicts arrows facing in and downwards, right next to the up and outwards white arrows.)

What does this all mean? 

We see human development as a complex activity, a back and forth of outward expressions and taking in information.
When it’s going well, this creates a feedback loop of action, reflection, and commitment – and around again to action.
And it's one way we strive to help you make wiser and more emotionally intelligent decisions.
