Sculpt Development was born out of four friends trying to stay sane during the dumpster fire that was 2020, by having weekly mastermind meetings on the porch during the coronavirus lockdown. Their conversations quickly narrowed to a shared belief that ultimately, individual potential is what powers organizational success.
The name Sculpt Development comes from a famous story about the renowned Renaissance sculptor and artist, Michelangelo. When asked how he created his great sculpture, "David," he responded that the masterpiece was already there, waiting in the granite, and he simply had to free it. (This story apparently never happened, but it didn't dampen their enthusiasm about it!)
They share a common belief that people power businesses, and that "removing the obstacles" through on-going education is key to revealing their full potential. They saw their corporate clients, who often lacked expertise with sourcing learning and development opportunities, struggle to analyze their organization's professional development needs then source, vet, and hire solutions. They realized there was a need to be filled and the idea of providing an easy, cost-effective path to ongoing growth for teams led them to create the Sculpt Development solution.
