Discussion Partner Collaborative LLC




 About Us


Discussion Partner Collaborative LLC challenges C-Suite executives to apply a Null Hypothesis to strategic intents and initiatives.

Discussion Partners is committed to sustaining enterprise viability by leveraging Leadership Capabilities and Employee Engagement by aggressively asking the question “what if all you believe to be accurate and possible is incorrect”….the Null Hypothesis!



 DPC DPC’s  global advisors use data driven solutions derived from our Primary Research, Proprietary Studies conducted by Alliance Partners, and lessons learned from our client engagements.  Our proprietary methodology compels our clients to presume their assumptions regarding Leadership Effectiveness are erroneous, and their portfolio of Human Capital programs are flawed.

Thought Leadership Alliance

Discussion Partners enjoys a Strategic Alliance with Tammy Erickson, an award winning author and widely respected expert on organizations and the changing workforce. Her work is based on extensive research on changing demographics and employee values and, most recently, on how successful organizations innovate through collaboration. She  has  written  four  books (see below) on managing separate and distinct age cohorts, a concept that is the foundation of Talent Readiness..

A McKinsey Award-winning author and well-known lecturer, Tammy's work focuses on shifting generational values, the changing workforce, innovative approaches to engagement, and counter-intuitive paths to collaboration and innovation.  Tammy's work on generations is based on her extensive research on the nature of work in the intelligent economy.
