Who We Are

Our Mission, Purpose, and Values

At Blue Beyond Consulting, we believe that the heart of a truly successful organization lies in the deep alignment between its Mission, Purpose, and Values. Our Mission defines what we aim to achieve, our Purpose explains why we exist, and our Values are the guiding principles and compass guiding our journey towards success. Together, they form the essence of our identity and drive our commitment to excellence, innovation, and meaningful impact.

Understanding and embodying this alignment is crucial for fostering our Deep Trust and High Expectations® culture. It inspires our team to move in unison towards a shared vision — creating the future we yearn for — empowers individuals to contribute their very best, and cultivates an environment where relationships, mutual respect, and collaboration flourish. In short, our Mission, Purpose, and Values permeate every aspect of our work and guide us in making a positive difference in the lives of our clients, our communities, and each other.

Our Mission

Building effective organizations where both the business and the people thrive®

Our Purpose

When we formed Blue Beyond, we asked “What is the future we yearn for?” We came up with seven statements of purpose that together express the higher purpose that animates our work.

Business is a force for good.

If capitalism is the bedrock of our system for taking ideas to reality in our world, then businesses own the moral responsibility to do our part to do good work to sustain our people and planet. We want to be a part of making businesses a force for good. The Fortune 1000 owns much of the capital of the world and if good happens in the world, corporations need to be part of the mix.

We live as global citizens, cherishing our common humanity and respecting our diversity.

The first time we looked at earth from space, there was a significant shift in human consciousness. We are all in this together, we are interdependent—and the variety and diversity of our world is what brings beauty, creativity, challenge, and sustainability for all of us—and we need to nurture that and celebrate it.

We have a deep, sustaining, and conscientious connection to nature and an enduring stewardship for our particular place on the planet.

While we are global citizens, we find our place in the whole when we are deeply connected to nature and to our particular place and time. Each of us has a distinct responsibility to tend our particular place, the human and natural ecosystem we are part of.

Our workplaces are a genuine source of community and connection.

Work is a huge element of our lives—work should be a rejuvenating and sustaining place for every one of us. If we are going to work as hard as we do, the workplace should be a place of community and connection. Businesses can be hopeful places for the people who work with them.

Group genius is catalyzed to help solve our most intractable problems.

Two heads are smarter than one. If we can create an environment where people can bring their whole selves to work, we can create environments with exponential promise. Our weaknesses are someone else’s opportunities. The truth is that we are smarter together than any one of us would be alone. This is not a zero sum game because there is only more.

Every child has the chance to flourish, learn, and thrive.

The future is what we are here for. This starts with our commitment to our employees’ children and expands to the children in our neighborhoods, our place, our time, our world. Our children are our legacy and the decisions we make today, impact their future.

Mind, soul, heart, and body health is valued and nurtured in our workplaces and in our communities.

We are whole people and we want our work together to nurture each other and our clients. If we show up like this for our clients, it gives them the space to also show up as whole people. We are also committed to creating psychologically safe groups, where the teams have a safe place for interpersonal risk taking.

Our Values

At Blue Beyond, our values aren’t just statements; they’re the essence of what “makes us, us,”
undergirding our Deep Trust and High Expectations culture. These five values shape our character, mindsets, norms, and behaviors, driving our collective actions toward excellence.

These are the commitments that help us create the future we yearn for:

Group Genius

We recognize that none of us are good at everything, but together we can do anything.

Owner’s Mindset

We invest in Blue Beyond’s and our clients’ success, because it’s our success too.

Gratitude

We start from a place of abundance, possibility, and potential.

Reciprocal Care & Respect

This means we…
