“Work is love made visible.”

-Kahlil Gibran


Our Mission

We engage in “Vuja De,” the practice of looking at old practices through new eyes. Our goal is to help leaders and executives create trust-based, inspired, equitable, and purpose-driven workplaces.

Who Do We Work With?

We work with organizational and department leaders in any industry to transform the way their teams operate. Our goal is not to “solve problems” but to collaborate with leaders to build capacity and sustainable practices that bring humanity, trust, equity, and purpose to the workplace.

Why Does This Matter?

There is, of course, the bottom line. Companies with high levels of institutional trust and equitable practices show a 50% reduction in employee turnover, 56% increase in customer loyalties, 38% increase in productivity, and a 27% increase in profits. 

But there’s a deeper reason we engage in this work. Fundamentally, people want to know that they’re contributing to something larger than themselves. When we can tie our actions and energy to impact, we intrinsically develop motivation, passion, and fulfillment in our work. 

Deep Practices Consulting is dedicated to working with leaders make their workplaces spaces that foster trust, integrity, equity, and drive to help them reach their goals while keeping humanity at the center.

Deep Practices Founder and Senior Strategy Consultant Dr. Kate Newburgh has over a decade of experience in research and systems change. She began her career as a New York City Teaching Fellow in the Bronx, NY. Since then she’s held diverse roles in the field including Educational Researcher, Academic Affairs Director for a national non-profit, and Strategy Lead for Transformative Learning for Eagle County Schools, CO. She’s a member of several large-scale networks including the Colorado Education Initiative and America Achieves. She earned her Ph.D in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Denver with a research focus on system-wide teacher retention and structural, whole-teacher supports.

The Deep Practices Consulting logo was inspired by David Whyte’s poem “Working Together,” which gives us permission to “trust to those elements we have yet to see.” The logo shows how, through Deep Practices Consulting, L3C, I endeavor to trust in and give shape to the intangibles that influence our daily lives.


Working Together

 We shape our self
to fit this world

and by the world
are shaped again.

The visible
and the invisible

working together
in common cause,

to produce
the miraculous.

I am thinking of the way
the intangible air

traveled at speed
round a shaped wing

holds our weight.

So may we, in this life

to those elements
we have yet to see

or imagine,
and look for the true

shape of our own self,
by forming it well

to the great
intangibles about us.

David Whyte
