Promote Simplicity

Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it to a six-year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” While simplicity is the ultimate hallmark of sophistication, complexity is often the silent killer of profitable growth. Across all industries, companies and leaders who keep things simple enjoy an inherent competitive advantage. People may be complex, but rocket science isn’t the solution. Simplicity is elegance.

Demonstrate Inquisitiveness

We may not always have all the answers, but we know how to ask the right questions. In fact, asking great questions is at the heart of what we do best. Whether we are helping people resolve a disagreement through mediation or working with leaders and teams to develop their skills, thoughtful questioning and our curiosity helps clients weigh their options and determine their own solutions.

Exhibit Candor

Centrum brings you an external perspective and operates under a mantra of no BS. We are forthright in our communications and may sometimes tell you what you may not want to hear—but need to know. We’ll work to understand you and respectfully provide the unvarnished truth without the influence of internal politics.
