As strategic management consulting firm, Legacy stands as a global leader in transformative learning, enabling people and teams in organizations to overcome major challenges in leadership, culture, productivity, breakthrough performance, and execution. We excel in the delivery of learning that goes beyond traditional models to provide clients with a new foundation from which to design their future.
Traditional learning starts from an existing world view and seeks to provide knowledge or skills that lead to improvements within that current world. Transformative learning, in contrast, reshapes the landscape on which your people view themselves and their world, opening possibilities for action that were previously unseen. In transformative learning, you look beyond your current worldview or paradigm, seeing what exists without the distortion of past experience, limitations and beliefs. When transformation occurs, nothing changes — yet everything is altered as you and your people discover new frames of reference, an entirely new horizon from which new actions and outcomes inevitably emerge.
Although the breadth of management consulting Legacy delivers is broad, clients most commonly choose to partner with us when they need to positively disrupt the organization, want to create a future that is bigger than anything they can generate organically, want a leadership team that is aligned and trusts each other, and are committed to creating a high performance culture to deliver on unimaginable results.
Legacy’s offerings are designed for executives and managers who sense that their people have yet to fully realize what is possible for themselves, their culture and their organization. An Effective Organization by Design®– Legacy’s core offering— is a strategically crafted curriculum, made up of five offerings, that are delivered to teams within organizations over a period of time, demonstrating immediate and ongoing stunning results in the area of leadership, performance, culture, and productivity.
We are a core team of fifteen senior transformational consultants, committed to acting as catalysts, helping you and your people realize what matters most to you. We empower and enable clients to produce results far beyond the predictable, given the history and circumstances of that organization. Below is a view of Legacy Transformational Consulting by the numbers: companies and individuals we worked with, and countries and languages in which we delivered our work for over three decades.

Richard Hopper passed away January 16, 2023. He asked that we celebrate him and his life, rather than be saddened by his passing.
Richard was a master student of transformation. He was a seasoned CFO who spoke seven languages and held a Ph.D. in International Relations. He was a brilliant pianist and he sang in many languages. He worked at a number of public companies including Exxon, and, little known fact – he started a passion fruit business that captured 27% of the Colombian market – a business that he later sold to a large Colombian company.
When he first joined Legacy, Richard declared “By 2010 Colombia is at peace in every region of the country as measured by me walking anywhere I choose with my granddaughter.”
We worked with many amazing companies in Colombia through Richard’s introductions including Almacenes Exito, a wildly successful client of ours. Exito’s CEO, Gonzalo Restrepo, was Richard’s brother-in-law. Gonzalo was also one of the negotiators at the Colombian Peace Talks held in Cuba with the Government of Colombia, FARC and Paramilitary groups. The President of Colombia was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016 for his groundbreaking efforts in bringing peace to Colombia. Richard held meetings with President’s, Mayors, Generals and many other high-ranking officials of Colombia. He made it clear that peace was possible in Colombia.
We traveled the world together and Richard made a difference in every client interaction including with Robert and Gisele. We all love Richard and his wife, Maria Cristina Restrepo, for their deep service to humanity. We celebrate you Dr. Richard Hopper.
