Groundwork with organizational leadership to create cultures
that optimize human potential

We will take teams and organizations through the following critical steps
to sustainable performance cycle:

We recognize that every work environment is unique and comes with its own unique set of strengths and challenges. Through our consulting process, we personalize and contextualize our proprietary models and the concepts from our workshops to progressively build cultures where human potential can reach its peak.


  • Rasanath and Hari Prasada facilitated a retreat for CARE’s Strategic Partnerships team as we emerged from a period of significant organizational transition, including the merger of another team into ours. They used a logical progression to help us reach a very practical conclusion about our purpose and way forward. The exercises were appropriately challenging. We are immediately able to implement the results via integration into our annual operating plan and special team initiatives. Rasanath and Hari Prasada created an environment that gave everyone on the team, including our two new members, the confidence to contribute. They kept us motivated by effectively reading the team’s mood and allocating time well. We only wish we could have more time with them!

  • Hari Prasada and Rasanath create a trusting yet challenging environment that is fertile for discovery. They challenge conventional management techniques and present refreshing alternatives. Their research is thorough and intelligent, their approach imaginative, and their delivery humorous and graceful. They heighten our internal sense of awareness and present the incredible promise that the power to change exists within each of us.

  • I’ve attended more than a dozen team retreats and the Upbuild Visioning offsite really stood out for its simple, profound approach and practical, tangible outcomes – not to mention the exceptional facilitation style, which was both motivating and calming.

    -Paul Towne, Sr. Director of Strategic Partnerships & Alliances at CARE USA

  • Rasanath and Hari bring both nuanced complexity and elegant simplicity to their facilitation of the Enneagram work with teams and individuals. They integrate exquisite care and sensitivity, with fortitude and challenge, resulting in an ideal environment for reflection, growth and risk. They are highly attuned to group dynamics and handle them deftly and skillfully in order to get to the heart of what is at play within a team and guide team members to new ways of seeing and understanding each other. As a result, life-changing transformation can occur both at the individual level and the team/system level. Their fierce intellect is only matched by their profound humility. I highly recommend them!

    -Annie Perrin, Senior Vice President of Faculty and Content at The Energy Project

  • I think that we are being asked more and more frequently to forget that we and those with whom we work are human - we are expected to manufacture ideas, pump out creative content, and never disconnect from work, all leading to a sense that we are not being recognized as holistic beings with hearts and souls and brains that need nourishment through connection and introspection. That is one of the reasons the work of Upbuild is so essential. It has given me a new language with which I could describe how I experience the world. Understanding nine ego lenses has helped me to feel connected to a tribe of people who experience the world in a similar way and who may have many of the same struggles. At the same time, it has also helped me increase my appreciation for the value that each different lens brings to the world. This vocabulary prompts me to have important conversations about our individual experiences and viewpoints. I had an amazing experience with Upbuild and I would recommend it to anyone.
