Cosmic Centaurs is a consultancy, training, technology, and insights company helping executives, leaders, managers, and teams, creating happier and more flexible workplaces.
We focus on improving the collective intelligence of teams, by improving collaboration, resilience and innovation.
We help leaders, HR Professionals, and managers, structure teams, invest in the appropriate technology and training, nurture an organizational culture that is location independent, and make distributed work a competitive advantage.
As more and more people started to work from home after the 2020 global pandemic, Marilyn our founder began to imagine everyone sat at home, wearing a work shirt with pyjama bottoms, like corporate centaurs: half office, half couch.
At the time, Zoom became the primary conferencing tool, and people started changing their backgrounds.
Our Founder particularly loved the outer space background; and that's how Cosmic Centaurs was born.
