BRING YOUR PURPOSE INTO YOUR COMPANY:
By making purpose-driven leadership a strategic priority, you will do more than awaken your own leadership, but create a more profitable company (explore the research) and a more rewarding, creative, engaged, authentic and intimate company culture.
What I find is that often companies:
To do this, I work with senior executives to create a customized plan, that typically involves these components:
ABOVE: Keynote to 180 Johnson & Johnson executives.
I facilitate half-day, day-long and two-day purpose discovery and leadership intensives, and ongoing coaching programs for leadership teams looking to accelerate their growth, create a deeper alignment between personal purpose and collective purpose.
I help executives awaken their purpose-driven leadership, frame corporate strategy from the perspective of individual and corporate purpose and empower a more exciting, organic and fruitful sales process. I have worked with numerous organizations in the public and private sectors, such as Johnson & Johnson, Autodesk, Babycenter, Lifefactory, Ovation TV, ReadSocial, NetShelter, New Voice of Business, and the City of San Francisco. More about my work here.
I help professionals and executive teams from successful companies like Apple, Johnson & Johnson and Google, awaken their purpose-driven leadership and create profitable high-impact businesses.
I also deliver inspiring keynotes and workshops at large corporations like Johnson & Johnson, and startups like Net Driven, Dr. Hops Kombucha and AnnMarie Skincare, and at events and conferences like Global Purpose Day, New Paradigm Populism, the Greenerminds Summit and the Mobile Entertainment Conference.
As a teacher of many online courses, such as the Purpose Challenge and The ManKind Project's "Man on Purpose" course, I have guided more than 2,000 people from over 50 countries to find, live and lead with their life's purpose.
I also teach live courses and have lectured at the University of California, Northern Arizona University, The Institute of Noetic Sciences and the California College of the Arts.
Prior to finding my purpose - creating a world of 7.3 billion purpose-driven leaders -, I built teams and led projects for a number of successful social enterprises, start-ups and Fortune 500 Companies, such as Merrill Lynch & Co., Autodesk, Bebo/Aol., Crackle/Sony, Intertainer and SunTechnics.

Ten years ago, I was at a crossroads. I had developed a lucrative skill set in finance, strategy, and business development, earned an Ivy League MBA, and was poised to become a world-beating executive. However, I had also begun an exploration into the nature of reality via the lenses of physics, psychology, ecology, and our wisdom traditions. I wanted to understand how best practices for human life intersected with economics and how my life could include both.
I was most struck by the conclusions of unity arrived at in each field. Physics quantumly entangled us; ecology and the atmospheric sciences made us interdependent; Big History gave us a shared genesis story that Wikipedia continues to record; Ken Wilber’s integral philosophy unites matter, ideas, individuals, and collectives; neuroscience gave us a social brain and empathy neurons; and economics wrapped our planet in a tight web of trade and currency policy. We no longer had to take mystics like Rumi and Whitman at their word.
