There’s a bridge from where you are now to something better.

Better for you. Better for your organization. Better for the difference you want to make.
What are you reaching for?

“Sustainable” is an essential milestone on the way to “thriving.” As you are (re)defining success, are you rethinking "sustainable," too?

Yes, “sustainable” in business is about how we relate to profit and “stuff.” But all that is created by people. Sustainability practices are about people even more than they are about “stuff.”

"Sustainable" is about people and how we interact with all of life.
Where does how you create, lead, grow and collaborate fit into your working definition of “sustainable?”

What becomes possible - personally and organizationally - when “sustainable” becomes your floor, not your ceiling?

Imagine what “thriving” could look and feel like to you.
What do you need now to grow as a more vibrant, inspired leader?
What will it take for you to thrive where you are planted, by choice?

Thriving is both an experience and an expression of who you are.

Growth by Design builds your capacity to grow from a vibrant, adaptive and purposeful core. It requires attention to conscious, skillful choice in developing leader effectiveness, collaborative effectiveness and ecosystem growth. It embraces the complex challenges for improving culture and engagement.

A leader who understands culture and uses it to deliver on their strategy will accomplish radically better results. One definition of organizational culture is the reward systems and implicit behavior that happens when nobody is looking. A leadership culture orientation develops essential leadership competencies, life stance and behaviors throughout your organization (independent of role or title).

Growing your culture - and particular, your leadership culture - is always in service of strategic business results. Culture ignored puts results in peril.
