A diversity of experiences.
A diversity of relationships.
A diversity of tactics.
A diversity of possibilities.
Although I have degrees in history and law, I am a student of nearly everything. With a significant background in formal policy making and corporate social responsibility activities, I have learned the rules and how to break them. As a co-founder of the Studio/E exploratory community, I am steeped in the tools and practices of creating pathways of value where there are no instructions. I am a senior fellow at the Lewis Institute and Social Innovation Lab at Babson College which for over three decades has led the world in entrepreneurial education. This nonlinear background results in more than outside-the-box thinking: I engage in "deny-the-box" action.
I have a deep belief in the power of enterprise as the most powerful way of creating change and prosperity but like every other institution created the history of humanity, left unchecked it also has the ability to create great harm. Culture is the most persistent way we steer our behaviors and when we intentionally create cultures and marketplaces that demand and reward the best of enterprise, we construct the wisest path towards building vibrant, prosperous communities for all.
In a world defined by anger and polarity, my politics are radically independent and I always choose the path of forward over right and left. I wield a personal practice of curiosity, generosity and diplomacy that allows me to produce environments that harmonizes individuals into purposeful alignment.
Leading is different than just winning. If you're interested in finding reward and success in the growing marketplace of people who don't want to buy things, but desire to put their energies towards buying into better things, I'd be grateful for the opportunity to support your success.
