High-Five cultures, high retention, easy recruitment, high-performing teams can sometimes seem an impossibility in today's ever-changing, fast-paced, low-unemployment, intense business climate.

Dr. Rachel MK Headley and Meg Manke, Senior Partners at Rose Group Int'l (RGI), have developed a framework to assess and modify an organization's Internal Experience, or iX. Starting with Culture Types (based on Jung's work in the 1920's and informed by existing assessments such as MBTI, DiSC, and others), you can begin to understand how your people work in teams and their tolerance for chaos (or *freedom!* for those of us who love chaos). These two aspects of our personalities directly inform leadership around how to strategize improved performance, achieve bigger goals, and roll-out new initiatives.

Culture Types can further inform more aligned matches between roles and individuals, thereby increasing the likelihood of success - which can be used in either new hires, promotion opportunities, or M&A. Join us to determine your Culture Type, learn about developing your iX, and feel empowered to handle some of the most difficult challenges in your day with a brand new set of tools.


Dr. Rachel MK Headley, PMP is a Mensa PhD scientist and former operational science officer of the Landsat satellite mission, with over two decades of experience leading complex and groundbreaking achievements, managing big projects, uniting diverse international stakeholders, and guiding teams through change. She is a TEDx speaker and Forbes contributor.

The first decade of her career saw her contributing to our understanding of the population in North America prior to European settlement, documenting human impacts on Earth from space, and determining how changes on the landscape can affect climate change.

In the second decade of her career, Headley was part of the leadership team of the NASA/USGS Landsat satellite mission, as the operational science officer. She helped lead the team through intense years of transformation, moving from a cost to no-cost data model (losing $5M in annual revenue), consolidating the image archive from 26 ground stations around the world, speaking in front of groups of 12,000+, briefing the Assistant Secretary of the Department of the Interior on her teams' accomplishments, and standing atop a rocket in the days before it launched into low Earth orbit.

Today, she is the Senior Partner of Rose Group Int'l (RGI) and consults and coaches organizations to create high-five cultures, to give voice to unspoken conversations, to build up their leadership talent and skills, and to improve the lives of everyone in the organization. She has worked with individuals who have gone on to author books and with corporate clients with $2B portfolios who needed support through major reorganization.

Meg Manke, MSSL has years of experience in leading through transition. From major changes in highly-regulated industries to managing a $100M acquisitions, Meg has refined skills in understanding people through change. Her studies in organizational psychology, mastery in leadership concepts, and manager of human resources and training within the mining sector ensure that your people are taken care of. Period.

Meg has a passion for helping other realize their full potential - breaking down social and personal barriers - changing their story. Her innate ability to recognize opportunity in weakness and present a strategic solution is unprecedented in today's business world. Meg is a ranch kid from western South Dakota, where she still puts in a hard day's work on the family place. Ranch life gave her sticktoittiveness, passion for family and outdoors, and maybe a touch of stubbornness. Meg is an avid runner, an advocate of the well-rounded education of youth, and a major supporter of finding humor in all things.

Rachel & Meg's book: "iX Leadership: Create high-five cultures and guide transformation" will be released officially in October 2018.
