Why Our Work Is Needed
Too many leaders stop short, struggle needlessly, or burn out.
The challenges are many:
Not enough time, money, leadership, people-power…
overwork, overwhelm, and over-promising…
lack of confidence, team drama… and the list goes on.
The costs are high:
From rapid turnover to abandoned projects and imploded teams…
from failed campaigns to investments squandered and injustices persisting…
How much longer can we do it this way?
Our Theory of Change
When changemakers are empowered,
we all go farther, faster,
toward a world that works for all.
Social change leaders have the vision, passion, courage, and creativity to lead thriving organizations that can create lasting social progress. All too often, all that’s missing is a system of tools and skills for putting fundamental success and empowerment principles into action, and a community of practice to help master that system. That’s where we come in.
We give social change leaders a system for bringing their best to every situation.
Our power to transform our circumstances starts with a success mindset. We give changemakers a proven system of principles, tools, & skills for consistently acting from courage, creativity, & authenticity… instead of worries, doubts, & fears.
Our vision: Thriving movements, making lasting social progress.
What would it be like if leaders everywhere were bringing courage, creativity, and resilience to our greatest social & environmental challenges? We are uniquely positioned to make this vision a reality, and the result will be a transformation in both the means and ends of social change.
Our approach is pragmatic, powerful, & proven to create results.
Our coaching and training approach, designed and refined over several decades by Dr. Maria Nemeth, has transformed thousands of lives over several decades. Dr. Nemeth is a Master Certified Coach, licensed clinical psychotherapist, and pioneer in the field of coaching and transformation, and serves as founder & director of the Academy for Coaching Excellence, a coach training organization accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF).
Our approach uses direct coaching, dynamic training, didactic presentation, personal reflection, & group interaction. Our model connects powerful success principles with pragmatic tools & skills, to create lasting, measurable results.
Our program alumni are:
They are happier, higher-performing, and more in touch with a sense of who they are and what they value.
They build, empower, and sustain stronger teams, organizations, and movements.
They execute more creative, visionary initiatives and achieve longer-lasting positive social impacts.
They build on successes, learn from setbacks, and stick with projects from idea to implementation.
