About Koan

We help leaders deliver exceptional results.

Koan’s simple, beautiful tools embody the best practices of the world’s top companies, continuously strengthening strategic processes through transparency, purpose, and the power of habit.

What We Do

Employee alignment and engagement remains a top challenge for almost every organization. With the shift to remote work, communication gets siloed, priorities shift and information gets lost in the daily spreadsheet shuffle. Koan enables teams to align and engage through the power of habit, keeping everyone connected to the mission and focused on achieving their most critical goals.

In Zen practice, a koan (/ˈkōän/) is a riddle or paradox that, once meditated upon, leads to enlightenment. An empowering analogy for leadership and managing teams, Koan tools can help organizations pass along enlightenment through the practice of asking questions and reflection. And with consistent practice, small positive behaviors, done consistently, yield enormous results.

Who We Are

At Koan, we live by our values and are focused on building a product that the entire team believes in.
