I’m glad you’re here.

We have
work to do.

What if we actually aimed for thriving?

Too often, we accept busyness and productivity as their own reward. Or we’re afraid to be bold, so we aim for something less than thriving.

As a result, we’re falling dangerously short of thriving in our communities, in our organizations and in our own lives.

So, what if we recognized the characteristics of thriving living systems in our organizations and communities?


And what if that were somehow simple and useful, opening up new insights and suggesting new ways forward?


What if our most powerful role is to act as stewards of life’s processes, actively cultivating the fertile conditions for life to thrive?


And what if this helped us achieve all of our other objectives more effectively?

This is the most important work of our times.
This is the practice of thrivability.


Here’s how I can help.

Whether you’re an organizational leader, a community planner or just someone looking for answers, here are some ways I can help.


Sharing deep expertise on what it takes for life to thrive in our organizations, our communities and our own lives


Hosting meaningful conversations to navigate complexity collectively, creatively and joyfully


Offering a comprehensive framework for designing and stewarding effective change


Mapping the opportunity in The Age of Thrivability: Vital Perspectives and Practices for a Better World


Delivering thought-provoking keynotes, workshops and webinars, with warmth and interactivity

The only way to avoid dangerous levels of warming is ... extracting more CO2 from the air than we contribute. If emissions, by miracle, do rapidly decline, most of necessary carbon absorption could be handled by replanting forests & improving ag practices.
