Logos Consulting Group commences its fourteenth year of helping clients under pressure perform over pressure.
The firm was founded in September 2002 by Helio Fred Garcia, and includes a team of seasoned professionals passionately committed to helping clients solve difficult business challenges, especially in times of crisis and change. The Logos Institute for Crisis Management and Executive Leadership was formed as a unit of Logos in 2004, and is now in its eleventh year.
While Logos Consulting Group team members are regularly engaged in counseling clients during trying times, the Logos Institute team works with clients to inspire more effective leadership communication. Logos Institute executive coaches have extensive expertise as speakers, authors, professors, communicators, facilitators, managers, attorneys, and entrepreneurs.
Anyone who has worked with Logos appreciates that, in both the Greek and Roman rhetorical traditions, a memorable summary needs to be delivered with the “Rule of Threes.” To that end, the thirteen years we have completed can be summarized in the following three ways:
1. Consulting, coaching, and core values
While Logos engagements often encompass high pressure and high stakes for corporate, institutional, and government clients, one the core values at Logos is the application of our consulting and coaching talents to causes we care about.
Logos has an active pro bono publico practice and Logos team members are personally involved in civic, artistic, cultural, educational, development, and religious organizations.
Logos consultants serve on the governing boards of not-for-profits and non-governmental organizations, as well as on advisory committees and academic networks.
Six senior Logos team members are active adjunct faculty at leading institutions including Columbia University and New York University, and are committed to mentoring young professionals.
2. Growing global
For the past 13 years, Logos has developed both a strong U.S. and international presence. Team members have spoken at events, conferences and lectures in more than 100 U.S. cities and more than 50 cities outside the U.S., including: Lima; São Paulo; Rio de Janeiro; London; Paris; Zurich; Milan; Vienna, Copenhagen; Amman; Cairo; Dubai; Singapore; Seoul; Hong Kong; Shanghai; Beijing; Nanjing; and Kyoto. On behalf of clients, Logos team members have traveled nearly 10 million air miles in in the last 13 years.
3. Colorful characters
Asked to characterize Logos in one word recently, a client said: “Partner.”
In addition to deep and extensive professional experience, Logos team members pride themselves on bringing diverse personal experience and passion to their role. Personal passions – including running, cooking, Harley riding, gardening and studying languages, to name a few – help color appreciation and understanding of business challenges, which are never in isolation of society and culture.
The next 13 years
Regardless of sector or size, Logos clients represent organizations that are committed to making a difference in the world at large and in their own sectors. And we at Logos are committed to our clients.
“I am the greatest. I said that even before I knew I was.” – Muhammad Ali
Barbara Greene, who has been with the firm all 13 years, captures Logos’ commitment to clients best: “My greatest joy in coaching is watching people fully appreciate the truth that revealed itself to the legendary boxer: that words, once uttered, have an incredible transformative power. A turn of phrase may be simple but it can affirm purpose, alter the course of a business and even change lives.”
To those clients who have extended your trust and offered us your partnership, thank you.
We look forward to continuing to work with our clients on their goals and welcoming new clients into our firm as we look forward to the next 13 years.
