About the Discovery Centre for Entrepreneurship

Since founding DCE in 1996, Tana Plewes, MA, and her facilitators have helped hundreds of organizations, including nonprofits, economic development groups, and startups, streamline processes, discover new revenue streams, align company culture, and make legacy-making breakthroughs in their industries.

And we do it all with systems.

What we do:

Systems-Based Leadership Consulting

Systems are structures to hold desired outcomes in place.

It’s easy to imagine what you want: more wealth, more time for what you love, and more wins. But imagining how to get there? Not so easy. That’s where systems come into play. 

By learning to think in a systems mindset, you can anticipate future needs and respond decisively and effectively in real-time. You’ll understand how departments, people, technology, and processes interact and affect each other. 

And most importantly, you set the course for success and bring everyone on your team on board with their momentum for shared targets. 

When your business has a foundation of effective systems, it’s easy to be visionary and excited about your future.
