Meet Our Clients

“Although we had been an ESOP for many years, we knew our ownership culture needed work.  We turned to Praxis seven years ago because of their unique focus on employee ownership culture and leadership development. Praxis attentively learned who we were, what was working, and how we wanted to evolve. They crafted custom curriculum and delivery for leadership development which has positively changed our communication, relationships, and success as an organization across all levels. Earning recognition as the 2022 national Employee-Owned Company of the Year is testimony to our partnership with Praxis.”
–Daniel Goldstein, CEO and President
