Atalanta refers to a heroine in Greek mythology. She was a hunter, warrior and athlete. She played by her own rules. In the famous Calydonian Boar Hunt, she struck the first hit with only a bow and arrow where others failed using heavy spears. When Jason of the Argonauts sought the most intrepid warriors to join him on his quest for the Golden Fleece, Atalanta was among their ranks, and lent him her spear as a token of friendship. And when it came to speed, only the trickery of Aphrodite herself could cause Atalanta to finally lose a footrace.
We’ve found inspiration and connection to Atalanta through these stories. When attacking organizational barriers, we too prefer to use precision and leverage versus broad strokes to achieve victory. When faced with a long-term journey, we are happy to climb aboard with our clients and equip them with our tools and our partnership. And given our results orientation, persistence and rapid execution, it would take divine intervention to keep us from reaching our goals – or from helping you reach yours.
Atalanta’s story and the lessons from it have endured through the ages. That is the power of narrative: stories weave facts together and give them meaning. They tell us who we are, where we’re going, what we value, and what matters. They guide decisions and inform our actions. In that respect, a good story is like a good strategy. When a strategy is compelling… when it resonates… when it’s simple, memorable, clear… when people can understand and connect to it, then (and only then), does it have the power to unify teams, inspire action, and create exceptional, sustainable results that will endure through the ages – just like our namesake.
Our mission is to bring clarity and meaning to strategy.
