Chaos.
Some see the chaos right away in our name. And the solar industry as it is still growing and maturing is a place that can often feel very chaotic. This is where the hard "kay" sound is drawn from in the pronunciation.

Analysis.
We love to ask the big questions. "Why?" is one of our favorites. We love to learn about and discover the deeper reasons and meaning behind an inquiry and solve for root causes.

Catalyst.
We are agents of change; a catalyst for people and organizations who are ready to do and achieve more.

Holistic.
Organizations are interconnected people working and communicating together. Without solutions that speak to the whole organization, we cannot make sustainable progress.

Chaolysti/Kallisti

"Chaolysti" is a play on the ancient Greek term "Kallisti." In the Greek Classics, the goddess of Discord, Eris, inscribed a golden apple with this term meaning "For the Fairest." The goddesses Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite each wished to claim its significance. Since Zeus, rather wisely, would not decide, he outsourced to a mortal, Paris, who awarded the apple to Aphrodite. She offered the perk he most desired, Helen of Troy, thus beginning a chain of events that led to the Trojan War.

The "apple of discord" is signified as the core, kernel, or crux of an argument; or a small matter that could lead to a bigger dispute.

Chaolysti seeks to identify those crucial process items in businesses before they spark an internal "Trojan War."
