Who are we?

We're a team. Each of us different in talent and passion, but united in purpose.

We focus on identity. We believe the intersection and understanding of Talent, Passion and Purpose drive the best and worst of us.

We are craftsman, we use the same tools as many other firms but produce significantly refined results.

We hate SPA days.

Those “development” sessions at work, school, or community that make us feel all warm and fuzzy, but don't call us to change. Our services don't include “emotional massage.” We love our clients and believe we are too expensive to waste their time.

We've taken the application of Identity Driven Leadership to audiences as broad as United Way World-Wide, Chrysler, and The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and as narrow and unique as the 2012 US Olympic Archery Team and the Afghanistan National Assembly. All of this, while continuously seeking out the lone innovator in need of resources or a guide.

Michael Dauphinee is our Founder.

An explorer, poet and resident big brother, in 2005 Michael left a successful career at Hewlett Packard to launch The Dauphinee Group.

A sought after Clifton StrengthsFinder expert, Michael speaks and advises on issues of launch, transition, re-organization innovation and talent investment.

He loves adventure, good work, and the honor of being invited into people's lives.
