Turquoise is a creative leadership consultancy which designs bespoke programs for Fortune 500 companies, creative businesses and social impact organizations. We believe that business and culture transformation are achieved when companies invest in leadership development, team building, innovation training, and both hard and soft skills. In the new economy, where startups are disrupting legacy companies and new technologies constantly challenge how we work and live, it’s clear that a new set of skills and proficiencies must be mastered by leaders, managers and teams. In the World Economic Forum 2016 Future of Jobs Report the authors predict that for The Fourth Industrial Revolution, in addition to technical skills, soft skills like creativity, emotional intelligence, empathy, collaboration and active listening will be key. Given this we have developed soft skills training to complement our offerings. 



No matter the client or industry, we see over and over again that the most impactful learning journeys are highly collaborative and experience driven.
