The founders of Kaleidal Solutions, LLC met in New Orleans, Louisiana. This kismet meeting was the catalyst for multiple changes, including the creation of Kaleidal Solutions, LLC. Each member brings a plethora of knowledge and experience from speciality areas with common themes of educational leadership, systemic change, training and professional learning, and organizational structure analysis. The name Kaleidal, like the happenstance meeting of the founders, is a meeting of two words/concepts: kaleidoscope and Daedalus. A kaleidoscope represents the founders multi-faceted approach to educational leadership and analysis to effectuate positive organizational and systemic change. Daedalus is a nod to the ancient Greek engineer who designed the labyrinth. This is an acknowledgement and recognition that the desired outcomes and attempts to reach them often require multiple attempts and paths as well as the ability to navigate a myriad of complex constructs and structural systems. Kaleidal Solutions works to bring clarity to complexity with a constant focus on targeted outcomes.
