flour·ish   ˈfləriSH/   verb     
(of a person, animal, or other living organism)
to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment.


What would it take for you to flourish in your life, your work, your relationships? Your families, communities, & organizations? 

Consider these necessary prerequisites for life to flourish through you and those you lead...
To...

  • be seen as valuable, and worthy of kindness and connectedness
  • feel you belong
  • be held as someone who matters, someone whose life and expression are integral to the health of the whole
  • be nurtured, nourished, and even cherished so that your full potential is brought forth into the world as it was meant to be
  • be encouraged to grow and transform courageously beyond your fears

Life is meant to flourish. Through you, me, everyone, everything. Alive on this planet, we're meant to relate, connect, express, know and be known, give and receive. 

In our current world, some get to flourish more than others, yet everyone is meant to flourish and we need the creative brilliance that flows into the world when everyone does.

What if we, together, could create a favorable environment in our communities and organizations for all to flourish? 

This IS our job as leaders.

To...

  • Awaken the innate creative potential and compassion that exists within everyone.
  • Honor and dignify our individual and shared humanity, as well as our powerful diversity.
  • Lead for and support creativity, collaboration, and compassion within families, communities, and organizations.
  • Ensure everyone has the opportunity to flourish as they were created to be, exactly as they hunger and long to.

 

What I know...

  • Everyone is creative. Creativity is your innate potential. 
  • Creativity is often hidden, dormant, and unrealized due to unconscious blocks, judgments, and fears.
  • Collaboration requires trust and connection, which require compassion and community.
  • Leaders can learn how to guide people, communities, and organizations to flourish in generative and emergent ways.
  • Leadership comes alive where your fully embraced humanity meets your awakened creative potential.
  • Leaders support the creative and communal power of people who've gathered to grow and serve.

     

Flourishing is contagious, generative, and (r)evolutionary.

For the past fifteen years working as a coach and educator, I've created an environment in which many people and groups could flourish by bringing together personal development and leadership development, and incorporating powerful curriculum from Stanford University.

People such as...

Stanford Students
Executives

Community members affected by the Sandy Hook Tragedy
Designers
Engineers
Therapists
Entrepreuners
Artists
Pre-school teachers
Family members who lost loved ones on 9/11
And marketers, medical advocates, coaches, and many more...

People like you, from many different walks of life, in a variety of life situations, learned this powerful, proven process. Using the tools and practices offered, these students awakened their creative potential and many went on to create environments in which others now flourish.

And now YOU can be a part of Flourish ... a 10-week online course for people who long to flourish and lead; a course that will awaken your personal potential and your natural leadership capacities.

 

We are living in a time of great change. Systems are crumbling. People are divided. Violence is escalating. Yet, something new is coming. We might not know what it is or will be, but we can feel something rising out of the ashes of what is dying.

It is here, in the space between, where we need a new kind of leadership. A leadership of cultivation, nurturance, and calling forth.

I hope you'll join me for this powerful new course. Registration will open soon.
