The NP Way

A new, complete and clear path

In the tradition of the indigenous people of North America, a great solution is one that considers all viewpoints. This can be applied to the business world when problems persist because other perspectives are not taken into account. The method for seeking counsel from multiple perspectives is still known as The Medicine Wheel.
