Get to Know Wherewithall

Wherewithall is the fresh perspective you need, the support you can only give so much of, the skills that are too important for your teams to learn as they go. We’re here so you can get back to running your organization and making the major decisions at your company. So you can trust and believe in your managers.

Founded in 2018 by Lara Hogan and Deepa Subramaniam, Wherewithall’s team has deep roots in the tech industry. We’ve worked with established and emerging leaders, new teams, old teams, remote teams, teams of best friends and teams of folks butting heads. As managers and leaders ourselves, we deeply understand the skills and level of support required for success at every stage of the game.

We’re here to fold in to your current management practices as little or as much as you need. We offer one hour facilitated roundtables, one-on-one coaching, manager skill workshops, full day management training, and customized multi-day offsite design and facilitation.

Our team is here to help yours reach its potential.
