Partner With Us To Run Fully-Customized Changemaker
Capacity-Building and Impact Acceleration Programs
The greatest lost resource to our crisis-hit world is changemakers and purpose-first entrepreneurs who lose their way, shrink from the challenges, get stuck in politics and resistance, trim their vision to fit expectations, fail to work collaboratively and systemically and—above all—give up their change agent work in order to make a living.
It’s tempting to think that changemakers fail because of a lack of capital, resources, or technology. But the root cause is always lack of leadership, innovation, and systemic change skills. Changing the world is the hardest task an individual can take on. It requires us to build inner wisdom and outer warriorship—and then land world-changing innovations and systemic impacts. On this journey, we must transform both ourselves and the systems we are part of in a reciprocal process of development and execution.
With 20+ years of experience working with 70,000+ leaders, 100+ Fortune 5000 companies, various Executive branches of national governments—and social innovators across the planet—we design, deliver, facilitate, and hold space for changemaker development programs that build highly effective leaders whilst at the same time accelerating their projects and enterprises in a measurable and systemic way.
