We’re on a mission to change the way we change


The Praxis Department launched in 2019 with a mission to change the way we change. We help leaders find clarity and take action to navigate growth and change more effectively, and to grow organizations that thrive on change.

With a radically human-centered approach that draws on diverse fields such as neuroscience, applied anthropology, and positive psychology, we focus on helping leaders create the change they envision, and build the collective action their company needs to thrive. We find what already works, and explore innovative approaches to creating change.

For companies today, success depends on being able to adapt, quickly and often. But too often growth and change is difficult, and fraught with uncertainty. We believe change doesn’t have to be hard. It is not a challenge to be managed or endured, but an opportunity, to create something stronger than we had before.

We are proud to be a member of the Portland Incubator Experiment and Health Equity Partners.


Change is a catalyst, and with the right knowledge, process, and tools, you can use it to power growth.
