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.

Learning to Fly

Suddenly, everything is up in the air. The ground has fallen out from beneath us. That vertigo we feel is real. Like the coyote in those old Road Runner cartoons, we’re suspended just beyond the edge of the cliff, waiting with equal parts denial and dread. Between...
