About Proteus

Proteus's History

Proteus grew out of a desire to help leaders get ready for the future. Since our start in 1990, we’ve been helping clients get clear about the future they want to create for themselves and then consistently choose the simplest, most feasible ways to make that future a reality.

Our practice has grown from two US-based consultants to almost 30 worldwide, supported by a talented and dedicated administrative staff—but our mission remains the same: to help clients clarify and move toward their hoped-for future.

We have the great privilege of working with clients all over the world; helping them improve their skills, define the future of their organizations, and work better together to achieve that future. And we take pride in practicing what we preach: as we help our clients move toward their hoped-for-future, we are doing the same for ourselves.
