Joy-filled, Champions of People Development at Work

Our Story

Catherine Allen and Ed Offterdinger are long-time friends who became business partners in 2017.

They realized that they shared a common philosophy about the power of learning and development in the workplace. They combined their diverse business leadership and organizational development backgrounds to create a consultancy focused on development of each person’s full capabilities. They are convinced that we all need different skills to truly thrive in the 21st century.  AO was thus formed to help organizations determine how to improve business results and contribute fully capable people to society at large.
