Our Values

Purposeful Approach

Purpose is a catalyst for change. We help individuals and organizations position their purpose at the core of what they do so they are able to compel, engage, and mobilize themselves and others into action. We connect the dots. Our solution-based strategies help individuals and organizations move through challenges so they can discover, fulfill, and sustain their purpose.


We work, grow, learn, succeed, and celebrate together. We work with individuals and organizations, not for them, to help them bring their purpose to life with our hands-on collaboration and understanding of who they are and what they can become.


We not only establish a thoughtful, clear plan, which will help us fulfill our own purpose, but we apply ourselves fully to that plan with aliveness, accountability, and truth. Commitment involves putting our best, most authentic beings into everything we do. We believe in stretching ourselves, taking risks, and being open to continually learning and growing.


Our main goal is to help others activate their purpose and reach their potential by putting our resources to use in their best interest. After all, we know that the highest quality relationships in our practice are those in which our team members and clients know that we deeply care about them and their interests, fulfillment, and wellbeing.

Why Breaking Through Consulting?

We have purpose. And we want others to have and activate theirs for fulfillment, influence, and social good. We believe in people, see their strengths, and empower them by bringing out their best. We are with you, we are for you, to help you break through and thrive.
