About us




In 2013, ADIGO Consultores celebrated its 25th anniversary and Adigo Lumo was conceived as a working group focused on Leadership, Culture and Organizational Mobilization.

In 2016, when we reached our 3rd anniversary, we decided to make an important move towards our identity and assumed what is core and differentiate us: work with clients to light the flame that mobilizes the conscious will of individuals, groups and organizations and keep it flashing through.

Adigo Lumo becomes LUMO, then.

Lumo, that means light/ flame in Esperanto, an international and universal language.

We continue to share ADIGO Consultores’ legacy: its principles, archetypes and approaches live within ourselves and in our practices.

We keep on learning every day with ourselves and together with our clients because the world does not stop and new contexts ask for new ways of reflection and action. New business and social realities ask for freshness – to think each challenge as if it is there for the first time, with curiosity and flexibility without forgetting the experiences and learnings of the past.

Lumo proposes to be light but profound and dedicated to support our clients on keeping the flame on, the flame that leads the way and encourage transformation. This flame is part of represented in our new brand.

Lumo partners share the purpose of supporting and encouraging the development of individuals, groups and organizations to identify their own intentions and transform them in achievements with profound meaning to themselves and sustainable outcomes for their companies and institutions.

Our partners held top management positions (yes, we went through this) in national and multinational companies and bring a sound executive and consulting experience to Lumo developed through their executive experience in the organizational context.

We are enthralled for travelling, promoting connections, know other cultures and new angles. We are privileged to work among friends in an environment of mutual trust.

We believe that, in order to deal with changes, we need to follow a continuous path of self-development, constantly searching for our own mastering, what is coherent with what we preach.

We bring together the business perspective and language to the human subtlety. It is mandatory to “break the automatism”. Instigate. Dialogue. Sensitize, Inspire. Gather the power of each “I” to the collectivity of the “We”, to build confidence. Mobilize for action. Combine depth and professionalism with lightness and good mood. Why not?

In other words, we, from Lumo, intend to work together with our clients to light and keep burning the flame that awakens the will and the conscious action of those who build up the organization every day: its leaders, collaborators, you.

Lumo. Light the flame, touch to transform
