We no Longer Work for
For 30 years of our products and programs have been used around the world, engaging Street Kids and CEOs. Now we are taking a stand for what we believe really matters.
We’ve always cared for people over the sales objectives of an organization or shareholder value. We have always endeavored to make workplaces environments where people thrive and grow and we have seen much that is not in alignment with this.
So we are taking a stand. We now only work for organizations that stand for something beyond profit. We call them Hero Organizations.
What do Hero Organizations look like?
Up until recently it looked like people development and business success were separate goals, but it turns out that they are really two parts of a single thing.
Deliberately Developmental Organizations, DDOs are focusing on a whole different way of being at work and are unleashing the potential of their people as a means of fully realizing organizational potential. At the heart of this process is removing the masks each of us wear at work: a courageous way to renew our organizations by growing our people. Read more about DDO’s…
Hero Organizations are committed to supply-chain transparency, multiple stakeholders, social, ethical and environmental responsibility, organizations committed to solving a real problem in society and living their values out loud.
"Hero Organizations are dedicated to leading the way to a more conscious capitalism."
We work for you. Our team and our hand-picked colleagues are committed to this vision and we give 100 per cent in supporting you to be successful, because we believe you are the future.
Our commitment is to serve you through all our programs and resources with the lowest price point possible, including pay-it-forward options.
We can help you radically and meaningfully tap into the full potential of all your people. Inspiring them to live, lead and share the vision and values of your organization.
Here is an example of a DDO: an excellent picture of one organization, Next Jump, that focuses on people development.
"We turn the training model inside out and upside down.
By not focusing on teaching or instructing, we inspire you to discover the greatness within your people and your organization."
