Why work with us (5).png

You want to make the world a better place.

You care passionately about important issues (e.g. anti-racism, mental health, LGBTQ+ rights, environmentalism, etc) and want to make a difference.

But...getting involved can be overwhelming and take a toll on your wellbeing and your schedule when you're already spread thin.

While you can't fix things with a magic wand or make the days longer, 

you CAN exponentially increasyour

capacity and impact


We may not realize it, but our unconscious thoughts and behaviors have a huge impact on how productive and effective we are. We tend to focus on other people’s actions, or blame the circumstances when things don't go well. As a result, we miss a big opportunity to use our own agency and power to explore new possibilities and create paths toward what we want.


Our self-sabotaging patterns, or Saboteurs, can have us retreat, go until we burn out, get defensive, or try to control the uncontrollable. Recognizing and shifting these patterns helps us access our greatest wisdom, capability and impact.

This problem is too big for me to make

a difference.

If I get involved, I might make things worse. 

I care but I just don't have the time.

If I don't put in 100% all the time, I'm not doing enough.

When we name and challenge our limiting beliefs, we unlock untapped reserves of energy and new possibilities.

This problem is too big for me to make

a difference.

I have something valuable to offer. Every contribution moves the needle.

I care but I just don't have the time.

I can participate in ways that work for me and my schedule.

         Tiana's experience with Positive Intelligence®:

With the wave of anti-racist activism that rose in 2020, I struggled when reflecting on my part in where we were as a nation and what I could do about it. As I was learning and having conversations with others, I noticed that I was drawing upon the skills I had learned in the Positive Intelligence program: noticing my reactions and judgments, pausing and assessing how I wanted to show up, and aligning my behavior with my intentions. Without these skills, I would have been more reactive and less resilient in my engagement. Instead I was able to stay open, curious, empathetic and perhaps most importantly, engaged. Positive Intelligence helped me show up at my full capacity for the change I care passionately about.
