Welcome!

I’m glad you’re here.

We have
important
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.

Changing The Game of Life

The most important thing we can do right now, individually and collectively, is to change the game we’re playing. “The game we play” is another way of thinking about the story or worldview we’re living out. Adopting a new game (or worldview) changes the conversations...

From an Economy of Hoarding to an Ecology of Healing

Our economic belief system is designed around hoarding - accumulating ever more stuff, in constant fear of not having enough and especially of not having as much as our peers. And look where that’s gotten us: to the edge of extinction, among other ills. In place of...

Evolving Growth

"Don't grow if it will make you sick." This is what the “mother” had told them. My client was a small, dynamic company that produced kombucha, a natural fermented drink believed to have significant health benefits. The group had asked me to help them figure out how to...

"What if there had also been Founding Mothers in the nation’s creation story? Might that story also have featured the stereotypically feminine response of nurturing & cultivating those ideals w/in family & community, in harmony with nature?"

Deeply grateful for these kind words from @jenandersson1 about my book. "With the growing existential threats faced by humankind, books like The Age of Thrivability paint a picture of what’s possible."

I love this ... and I believe we need to go further than "human first" to embrace "life first." All life. There is so much useful guidance, and so much greater inspiration there. With a focus only on humans, we won't get where we need to go. @corp_rebels https://t.co/EnxEvGefZ6 https://t.co/MmTCRgwTci
