Aartha North Star

About Us

At Our Core

Working with many clients across industries and cultures to implement change programs, we experienced a process full of challenges. Sometimes priorities were not clear, and program teams struggled to do everything with equal importance. Some clients strived to get more resources as they took on extra work on their already full plates. Others were well resourced but failed to get due attention from executives. Some tackled complex issues but were unsure if they were on the right track to meet their objectives.

On a closer look, we realized that the more troubled projects were missing a critical piece – a North Star. Something that would guide the team on the specific business results to target, help them know if they were on track, and show what results were generated. They lacked something to rally the organization behind as a common, observable, and worthy cause.

This missing North Star grew to become central for Aartha and how we work with clients. It is at the core of our business offerings and how we guide clients to leverage the right objectives and find reliable data to answer the relevant questions when they lead and implement change initiatives.

More Than Just Uncovering Data

In addition to finding the relevant data you need to know your business impact, partnering with us will save you time, enable you to prioritize better, strengthen your alignment with your colleagues, and improve outcomes for your program and yourself.

Our Beliefs

Outcomes Are the North Star

Like you, we feel the pain of limited time and resources, and we know you cannot afford to waste them on fruitless efforts. As a result, we are single-minded about creating value. We anchor our work to the outcomes desired and help you achieve that success, from program design to implementation.

Design Leads Results

We are a group of professionals who believe that great design is the basis for great results. Our shared values and commitment to results influence the work we do.

Generosity = Partnership

Whether a colleague, partner, or client, our motto is to give generously for you to have the impact you aim for. As generosity is central to our work, we aim to return at least 20 times value for the time and resources you invest with us. Once we have agreed on the scope and terms, we do not charge you for additional time, ever.

Quality Matters

Quality shows, and quality mattes. We use the highest quality frameworks to set our design apart. We use the highest ethical standards to deliver a stress-free partnership experience. We work on sensitive issues for you and offer complete discretion without ever compromising the transparency or integrity of our process.

Partner, Aartha

I focus on designing, implementing, and measuring client programs that need behavior change to deliver business results. There are surprisingly common features in these projects across industries and organizations! I teach, consult, and develop client and stakeholder relationships for Aartha.

On another note,

I like the outdoors and being in nature, hiking and walking. I chase creative pursuits like art, ikebana, food, and wine appreciation. I read voraciously and live to travel the world. Above all, I value developing genuine relationships with people. I volunteer when possible, and now I am volunteering with Columbia University’s Venture Capital Club’s Impact Program.

Partner Marketing, Aartha

I support clients to uncover the impact of their programs and develop stakeholder relationships and Aartha’s brand. My area of expertise is marketing and branding. Living up to a continuously co-developed and holistic brand promise is critical for gaining and sustaining a competitive advantage.

On another note,

I am a soccer fan. Team sports give us so much in return as individuals and professionals. As a European and having spent eight years in Singapore and the USA each, I am also a fan of good food and cultures. While it is often easier to focus on the differences, we have surprisingly many common values across countries and cultures. Spending time in nature fuels my energy and creativity, and I love developing people and businesses, whether it is lifting someone’s strengths or giving marketing advice.
