    Are you a learning leader?

    “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” –Eric Hoffer

  • virtual teamwork

    Are you looking for an innovative way
    to work with your team virtually?

    “A team can morph into a social learning space when members push each other to face the uncertain boundaries of their practice and develop themselves as learning partners.” –Etienne Wenger

  • power of community

    Are you ready to make a lasting difference as part of a community?

    “There is no power greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” –Margaret Wheatley


Today’s problems require leaders who have a strong, yet flexible team who can quickly adapt to unforeseen challenges and learn new skills. Is it really possible to build a disciplined, trained, and committed team in a few short months?

It is, if you’re willing to explore an entirely new solution. A Community of Practice will empower your team to…

  • build a community that develops its own capacity to co-construct,
  • lead the work together, and
  • learn to steward the development of their own knowledge and practices.
