Planetary Leadership

For many of us, it is impossible to ignore the hardship and suffering of the vast majority of the world’s population. We want to contribute to alleviating global problems – poverty, lack of basic health and education, environmental degradation – whether they are at our doorstop or in far away places. Yet these issues have reached a scale and complexity that require meta-level understanding and collective action. It is easy to become overwhelmed.

How do we engage these issues as planetary leaders, concerned for well-being and sustainability for all? We bring our coaching inquiry to this question and offer processes for diagnosing, strategizing and acting on complex multi-dimensional problems, working with individuals and organizations engaged in making the world a better place.

Integral Analysis for Social Change brings our understanding of integral philosophy and practice to the diagnosis of transdisciplinary issues and responses in order to formulate meaningful action.

International Nonprofit Strategy recognizes that many small nonprofit organizations require expertise in facilitating participatory strategic and action planning.

One World Dialogues are designed as collective explorations of how as individuals, communities and world citizens, we can make the world a better place for all.
