We want to help you shine.
Tournesol is a leadership consulting firm that partners with CEOs, senior leaders, and their teams in times of significant change, using a unique approach we call lead brighter.
Our dynamic, holistic approaches — based on our end-to-end lead brighter methodology — are designed to support you in whatever moment you’re in.

You might be:

New to your role, team, or company or ready to elevate performance, scale impact, or secure your legacy

At an important inflection point, navigating a new year, planning cycle, critical moment in your company’s lifecycle, or looking to drive growth or company renewal 

In an organization charting its course in a rapidly changing industry and world

No matter the moment you’re in, our unique approach helps you lead brighter, so you can harness the full power of your platform to elevate performance and improve the quality of people’s lives.

Tournesol is French for sunflower.

Inspired by the radiance of a field of sunflowers at dawn all turned toward the light, we’re here to help our clients turn toward a brighter future.

Every engagement is unique.

Our team works closely with leaders to do the bold, courageous work necessary to define a brighter future and chart a path to reach it.

We work differently.

Our job is to help you achieve your future, not tell you what version of the future we think you should create.

Partnership is our superpower.

We’re true collaborators — listening, sharing, practicing radical kindness, and bringing out the best in you and your team. Our primary goal is to help you realize the brighter future you hope to create.

Tournesol is about teamwork.

Our eclectic, passionate community of strategists, experience designers, innovators, makers, writers, artists, facilitators, and producers is committed to helping you create your brighter future.

MY SUPERPOWER IS strategy.

As a strategist, I’m hard-wired to unlock possibilities. I’m always asking, “how could we make this even better?”

MY CORE BELIEF IS I’m not here to tell you what to do. I’m here to create experiences that help you see and act on what’s possible.

TRUE LEADERS with an instinct to do breakthrough work are often told not to rock the boat, or that’s not the way we do things around here. Those are the leaders I love to help shine.

MY SUPERPOWER IS writing.

As a writer, editor, and communicator, I bring my ability to observe, listen, and simplify complex ideas.

TOURNESOL HAS TAUGHT ME to truly see and cultivate each person’s unique contributions. Taking the time to connect and discover who each person is, and what motivates them, leads to deeper relationships and a higher quality of work.

BRIGHTER FUTURES MEANS hope. Embracing the unknown when the ground underneath is shifting. The confidence to keep moving in a direction that aligns with your innermost beliefs. And taking action, even when it’s scary and requires a leap of faith.

MY SUPERPOWER IS program management.

To see strategy, product design, and project management in a new way, I draw inspiration from outside.

MY MOST MEMORABLE PROJECT was helping develop and launch the first mobile-based voter registration system in Libya after Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown.

MY SUPERPOWER IS shaping organizational purpose.

As a strategist and communicator, I’m always looking for clarity, and I strive to hold a strong point of view and be flexible at the same time.

MY PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT was helping IBM rapidly acculturate new employees in Africa. It’s incredibly satisfying to know that years later, the work I did has carried on.

TOURNESOL HAS TAUGHT ME to practice positivity. Lots of people want a better future, but don’t reach for it because they’re afraid. With practice, I’ve found that encouraging people to think in a less fear-based way is pretty amazing.
