Distilling Experience to Chart the Future

Touchstones fosters 21st century corporate leaders  who can develop collaborative teams and provide shared leadership to address unexpected challenges in critical markets. Within the larger organization, Touchstones works specifically with public and private enterprises to unlock the potential of your team and the individuals within your team.  Programs generally include 15-20 middle to senior level managers for 1hr sessions held throughout a 3 month period.
