Our Values


At NCG, we don’t train people.  We educate through a process where we help clients “think outside of the box.”  We believe that learning is a continuum that no one can master, but where one reflects, learns, and grows.

Our Values

From a global perspective, our services are aimed at both individual and organizational wellness.  From a consulting perspective, our work in education and JEDI is woven with the thread of wellbeing.  From a therapeutic perspective, we aim to challenge the myths of getting support for individuals in attaining both physical and emotional wellbeing.


Our Values

No one can do it alone. We work collaboratively with those we serve by taking advantage of what we all have to offer in the process.

Collaborating at Work

Our Values

JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion):
As mentioned in our mission statement, we are grounded in the humanity of people, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.  We believe that oppression impacts us all and not only those understood to be targeted by hate.  We are committed to working with clients who have been marginalized and those that are committed to addressing inequities and oppression in all its forms.

Our Vision

Our vision is simple.  Help to make the world a better place.

In our brainstorming of this statement, we thought it would be nice to share our bullet points:

  • Enhance individual people and organizations' JEDI proficiency, meaning they are always learning, but doing their best to build upon what they have learned

  • Build stronger communities

  • Create opportunities for development and learning

  • A safe place to allow others to grow and be their authentic self

  • Help stop Racism happening everywhere and show that we are all equal

Please note that our team members include a 15-year-old and a 21-year-old.  We think that the future is bright.

About our Logo

The Newton Consultancy Group logo was purposely designed as basic but intentionally driven by what our mark on the world stands for.  We want it to be a recognizable brand that stands for more than three letters.

  • The initials were important to include as it represents our family name and the contributions that we strive to share with the world

  • Black represents not only that it is a Black owned company, but it also represents space (yes, like in outer space).  Space is infinite and the possibilities of growth are endless, just like space

  • Gold represents value and strength.  NCG hopes to be able to add both to whomever we work with.

  • The gray box represents that we like “working in the gray.” However, we understand that as human beings we often can get boxed in because of how we are socialized.  Therefore, the NCG acronym can be seen going through the box.  It is a representation of our strategy to help people and organizations “think outside of the box.”
