What it is

A hands-on, in-depth exploration of the 10 pragmatic design principles so course participants can create their own step-by-step plan for rearchitecting their workplace.

They will also gain insights and mastery into the mindsets that change along with the infrastructures vs. simply developing new best practices that are often implemented with the same old attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors about what’s possible at work.

What you will learn



Rearchitecting Work, the book

Bosses transform into mentors, performance reviews become "How's It Going" conversations, team members communicate as trusted possibility partners.

"Holding people accountable" is replaced with "inspired ownership for results" when HR is empowered to create the culture shift from performance management to unleashing potential.

In this course we will go deeper on these principles and redefine what it means to be a Possibility Partner in the work place.

Our core values

Trust & Respect
Trust in ourselves, one another, and the universe is fundamental to all relationships and possibilities. Mutual respect allows for more freedom of possibilities and strength in all relationships. 

Caring for others develops empathy and a stronger sense of belonging and connection

“Power With” vs. “Power Over” Relationships
Collaborative, equality oriented, “power with” relationships, regardless of the hierarchy or title, inspire confidence and competency-building that is often stifled in “power-over” relationships.

Psychological Safety
Everyone is invited and encouraged to speak up and speak out no matter the subject or who’s in the room without fear of repercussions or diminished credibility 

Work is experienced as a gift of participation, contribution, and self-expression vs. a burden to survive

Taking ownership for the difference we can make in the lives of others with our unique talents and capabilities
