Our journey: past, present, and future.
Newton Institute was founded by successful entrepreneur Rick Newton. Integrating his faith with over 30 years of management and technology consulting experience, Rick has a passion to practically apply what he and other thought leaders have learned to help individuals, leaders, organizations, and communities identify their God-given design and fulfill their God-given purpose.
The Newton Institute, based in southwestern Pennsylvania, is one of three Newton Family of Companies, including Aspirant, a global management consulting firm, and Newton Talent, a professional recruiting firm.
The Newton Family of Companies have won numerous local and industry awards for leadership excellence, customer service, culture and growth and has offices in Pittsburgh and London.
Central to our work to uncover the design of individuals and organization is our compass. This compass is a tool to visualize the four fundamental questions all leaders and organizations must answer. Who are you? How will you operate? What are you going to accomplish? And Why do you exist?
All companies typically define Mission, Vision, and Values, but the compass introduces the important and often overlooked concept of DNA. In other words, a leader’s or organization’s Great Purpose should flow out of it’s own DNA — the unique characteristics that differentiate it from others.
This compass provides a guide for all leaders on their journey to Great Purpose, and the Newton Institute is no different. Below is how we answer the four questions, and together, they provide the guiding principles that keep our team aligned towards Newton Institute’s Great Purpose: To see individuals, organization, and communities reach their full potential.
