About Us

About Tim and Jeanne LaFaver

After senior positions in a Fortune 50 company, we formed Globulus in early 2014 with a simple vision

Create a consulting firm dedicated to give businesses access to real-world knowledge from seasoned industry experts with decades of experience.

Tim & Jeanne LaFaverBefore forming Globulus, we visited to Mexico’s famed Oyamel Fir Forest at 10,000 feet in altitude.  This forest is the winter home of millions of North America’s Monarch butterflies.  During that visit our guide used the term Globulus in describing the 5 generations of Monarch that live between visiting Mexico each year.

As he explained the developmental stages of the Monarch: from Larvae to Caterpillar to Chrysalis to Butterfly, we asked him what Globulus meant.  He explained,

Globulus, is a Latin term for chrysalis, or cocoon .

We chose Globulus for our firm’s name, as it represents the miraculous transformation of Caterpillar to Butterfly, and we wanted our firm to help businesses transform in the 4 primary area;

  • Process | Policies | Procedures
  • Technologies | Systems Integration
  • Product | Services | Customer Experience | Markets
  • People | Employee Engagement | High Performance Teams | Culture

Our Approach

We use a three phase approach to all engagements.  These phases align with; phase 1 of discovery, phase 2 of solution development and phase 3 of implementation. We associated these with the phases of a caterpillar, cocoon and a butterfly.
