what we do

At Myco, we know relationships. Connection. Care. Curiosity. We apply behavioral science to help people collaborate better. 

overview

We provide research-backed foundations, assessments, and interventions to help:

 

  • Individuals deepen their collaborative know-how

  • Teams discover how to structure collaborative work

  • Organizations establish collaborative culture

Whether through our advising, keynotes, or workshops, we find nothing more rewarding than helping clients navigate complex relationships with ease and confidence. 

 

It’s not rocket science; it’s relationship science.

"I now have a way to reframe my anxiety about moving forward that will help me overcome my slog. After just one session, I feel motivated and excited to get to work on my big undertaking. I certainly have not felt that way about this work in a very long time. Thank you so, so much!" 

“I was feeling stuck. You have this ability to clear things up for me when we talk. You are really good at narrowing down the issue in a logical, thoughtful way, yet with empathy.”

advising

Whether you’re on a new team committed to building strong foundations, on a troubled team that needs to get unstuck, or on a rapidly expanding team that’s trying to duct tape together a cardboard car as it hurls down the freeway: we can help.
