What we will discover

We’ll take an interactive approach to discovering evidence-based models from evolutionary psychology, family systems theory, and human development. From tribes to individuality to meta-culture, transform how you think, plan, read, innovate, write, serve, and lead.

Why is this important?

Without access to vibrant, applicable, and research-based insights, we risk making assumptions and forming mental models that can set back our work years, hurt key relationships, and keep us stuck in boxes that are no longer relevant. Break into your necessary and next.

What don’t we know?

Every group interacts with the content in a way that creates an experience that is as unique as the people in the room. This is why some attendees return for another workshop. We have a roadmap, a destination, and plenty to talk about. The rest is up to us.

Will this be “interactive”?

No one wants weird or awkward. That’s why we believe in the power of a well-facilitated experience. So we’re coming together as strangers to learn and discover, and we’ll leave the room feeling connected to others, ourselves, and the planet. Along the way, we’ll leave room for reflection (written and verbal), a few stories, and whatever surprises come our way.

Because your necessary must be next

The demands of our modern world force new questions about adaptability, agility, and flexibility – and many of us are in crossroads moments. Do we ditch, separate, cut and run? Or do we use our adaptiveness to not just fall in line but passionately create the emerging future? Can we carve out something together that works for everyone?

(Not just for those in transition)

Most of us are in some kind of transition. As our world labors the pain of transitioning to more inclusivity, depth, and justice, we experience similar transitions in ourselves. We live in systems, to be sure, but those systems live in us. Let’s create a space to talk about that.

I’m a bit of an analytic when it comes to coursework and ‘classroom’ learning and can be easily disappointed, bored, etc. But this was one of the best, most succinct and entertaining experiences of learning I’ve had in decades. Thank you!
