At Nebo, we often teach leaders how to use curious, open-ended questions to develop and empower others. People are often astonished to realize how valuable others find it when they ask a good question instead of just giving advice.
Our new brand makes the strong visual connection between our company’s name and our offer: to help leaders access their depths in service to the difference they want to make. The little ‘o’ is an invitation to dive into your greatness — and a little reminder that self-reflection is the path to leadership excellence.
At The Nebo Company, we commit to working closely with our clients to help them remember their unique sources of resilience and inner balance in order to tap into those strengths as they lead tough and demanding challenges.
