What We Do

Artemis builds and optimizes strategy + team.

We become a part of your team and train your company while implementing the right tools and strategies to bring your vision come to life. Our goal is for your company to become self-sufficient, to internalize the strategies and to execute against them.

We use lived experiences, academic research and hard data to understand all aspects of an organization's people, culture, and leadership – from the strengths of the culture, to what makes a good leader, to how managers lead their teams.

Breakthrough innovations happen at the intersections of different disciplines: diversity of thought, background, and experience. We believe you increase your probability of innovating when you activate a passionate, committed, cross-functional set of employees and experts. Our data informs programs that help an organization invest in its employees because we believe true innovation starts with delivering a meaningful employee experience.

Goal Setting and Measurement

We measure, analyze, and run “learning labs” to understand the employee experience within large organizations so that teams can make smart, data-driven investments in their people to unleash innovation.

Professional Development

We run immersive professional development, including boot camps for new managers or employees new to the workforce. We repurpose professional development and employee giving (corporate citizenship, etc.) to focus on true outcomes—not just outputs. We believe the Millennials are key to the workforce.

Intrepreneurship and Innovation

We set up metrics so organizations can focus on creativity, innovation and human sustainability. Technology supports reaching these goals but it isn’t enough. We build capabilities behind the scenes so leaders at all levels can continue the momentum. If you want to get sharper and better at something, track it and measure it. We will help you do so.

Staffing Support

We make strategic connections and find top talent, so you can focus on your real work. Sometimes you just need a strategic thinker on the ground, owning your problem and getting the work down. We can place a “job share” team in your organization to cover extended leaves, supplement the team while you wait for the right hire, etc. Because of our flexible model we can supplement an experienced consultant with someone with deep operational experience to give you a powerhouse team. We focus on Director, Sr. Director, and VP roles.

Who We Serve

Talent is a strategic asset and can be a competitive advantage. As such we keep our client names and unique situations confidential. We can share that we’ve worked across many sectors – health care, entertainment, venture capital, and more – and across all organizations sizes – from start-up to Fortune 100.

You may be a good fit if you are a:
     → Progressive leader who believes talent is a strategic asset
     → Rapidly growing company wanting to establish set up best practices
     → Investor, including venture capitalist, desiring to support portfolio companies with the right systems and habits

Who We Are

We are dreamers that believe the workplace can be different. Most of us are caring for children or aging parents. We want interesting, inspiring work in a flexible environment.

Why "Artemis Connection"?

Artemis Connection was named after the Greek deity Artemis, fraternal twin sister of Apollo and the goddess of the hunt. Our founder, Christy Johnson, started Artemis shortly after welcoming her own fraternal twins. An ex-McKinsey, Stanford MBA, Christy was discovering that many experienced and highly educated parents were ramping down or leaving the workforce altogether. Most career paths in banking, consulting, and other major industries didn't allow for challenging, exciting work that gave them enough time to really live—to observe, appreciate, and recharge with family and friends.

Christy knew that these passionate and accomplished parents didn't leave the hunt because they wanted to—they left because there was nowhere for them to stay. But there was huge untapped perspective they could lend to businesses and so, with their talent behind her, Christy founded Artemis Connection.
