The Science of People is Our Namesake
For over 15 years, Pathways Paver has been assisting individuals and organizations to unlock the power of organizational science to more effectively and efficiently execute on their missions, visions, and values. We use the bodies of scientific evidence in the fields of psychology and management — combined with robust univariate and multivariate data analytic strategies — to provide evidence-based solutions for organizations of every size, industry, and stage of development. We partner with our clients to assess and diagnose barriers to success, identify appropriate steps to help reduce challenges to achieving success, develop processes and people to manage change efforts, and coach clients through the stages of individual and organizational change. Our success only comes when our clients reach their successes and we are enthusiastic about walking the change pathways with them.
