When staying between the lines is mission critical

doing the basics is not enough.

Vicious Cycle of Non-Conformance

The Reactive Uncertainty Trap.gif

Based on our experience working with hundreds of organizations we learned that many take a silo-ed and reactive approach to meeting their obligations.


They wait until they have been audited or for a serious incident to occur before they improve their compliance. Their efforts often use the same reactive behaviours and practices that created their compliance debt in the first place.

This creates a vicious cycle of non-conformance where risk increases, obligations are not met, and stakeholder trust diminishes resulting in compounding losses.

These organizations are uncertain if they are able to continuously meet all their obligations.

We call this The Reactive Uncertainty Trap™.  

Virtuous Cycle of Conformance

What we have also learned is that you can escape this trap if you take a proactive and systems approach to compliance.​ 

Organizations that do, anticipate, plan, and act to ensure that they keep all their promises associated with their obligations.


They create a virtuous cycle of conformance that leads to lower risk, meeting more obligations, and engendering greater stakeholder trust accruing benefits year over year.

These organizations are certain they can continuously meet all their obligations because they have taken steps to ensure that they do.

A Way Of Escape

To escape The Reactive Uncertainty Trap™ and realize the benefits from your compliance we recommend you do three things:

  1. Take ownership of all your obligations ; don't wait for an auditor to tell you what to do.

  2. Establish real-time systems that always let you know the status of your compliance and risk.

  3. Intentionally improve your compliance over time.

We offer two choices: basic and advanced to help you improve your compliance.


For the basic, we can provide you with compliance consulting services. Of course, you can get the basic from many other consultants. 

However, our advanced program – The Proactive Certainty Program™ – takes everything to a much higher level and is only available from us. It's important to point out that you don't need to give up any existing consultants to join the advanced program.

The Proactive Certainty Program™ is not for everyone. It's for ethical and ambitious organizations who are future-oriented and strive to always improve their performance.

If staying between the lines is mission critical consider joining this program.

To help you decide if this program is right for you we offer the first step at no cost.  Learn more here:
