This is who we are:

We are a team of individuals who strive to do our best for our clients and to learn and grow ourselves a little each day.

We support leaders and teams by inspiring experimentation and exploration, building resilience and freedom, and launching growth through a continuous and adaptive culture. At Pliant Solutions we are willing to say I don’t know—AND have the passion to find out the answers.

Our Vision

We aim to work with purpose and actually give a damn–in the best possible way. We aim to exceed the needs of the client by delivering quality work and our best selves. We will choose interesting work, and work with interesting people, and not grow just to grow. We will not sacrifice quality for margins. We are committed to continuously improving and nurturing our whole selves, because we, our company, and our clients benefit when each of us is curious, balanced, personally growing, and feels secure within our tribe.

Our Values


of leadership & operating models for our customers & our own organism


in a safe environment & with the support of a great team

Personal Growth

The Community

Contributing to the agile and leadership community is important to us.

Meet Our People

We engage trained and experienced people who are not only “agile experts” but also have the skills to navigate organizational change while fostering personal improvement and team interaction. Along with the “industry standard” agile certifications (Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, ICAgile, etc.), our coaches are also trained and experienced in interpersonal coaching, change theory, and other related bodies of knowledge.

These additional knowledge areas give us an extensive toolbox of skills, models, and techniques that can be leveraged, when needed, to help move teams and individuals forward. They allow us to be adaptive and flexible, moving away from the traditional notion of coaching (“You are doing it wrong!”) toward a model that allows us to meet you where you are and coach you to the next level.
