the model of co-creation
BRINGING TOGETHER ALL COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS TO COLLABORATE AND CO-CREATE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC GROWTH.
A society based on 12 spheres of influence creates a flower of life pattern that thrives. We each operate through all the spheres with focus and interest in specific spheres.
Discovering who we are as a community is an endeavor worth taking. Following Barbara Marx Hubbard’s work and example we bring a process where everyone has a voice, an action, and an impact on the whole community. Key individuals are identified who know the community well and help to bring others to the table for conversations and explorations as to who we think we are and where we would like to go together.
Learn about our services from mentoring to board development, and from personal healing to whole organization evaluation.
Discover a community leader development program designed to enrich current business practices or co-create new ones.
