Where did the name “Six Arrows” come from?

The photo above is the clue. Psalm 127 contains this powerful and meaningful statement: “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!” My wife and I have six grown sons and are blessed indeed. The name is an acknowledgement of that gift from a beneficent Providence.

The name also represents the idea of helping clients fill their own strategic quivers with arrows for effectively leading through change.
