Business is evolving. You don't want to get left behind.

Collaboration. Teamwork. Communication.

Research shows that organizations with strong and distinct community cultures are driving the world's most innovative companies.

They hire and grow more efficiently. Their teams collaborate better. They work better with clients, customers, and partners. They confidently stay ahead of their competition.

You know that you need to learn from these organizations in order to future-proof your company and yourself.

Do you have the skills for leading the next generation?

When you have to fight for attention and buy-in, every molehill seems like a mountain. Nothing is worse than the feeling of frustration when people aren't seeing eye to eye.

As your business focuses on collaboration, have you thought about the role that you have to play to ensure people can really work together? Do you need them to...

  • ...communicate more effectively?
  • ...earn and keep trust amongst each other?
  • ...set and achieve bigger goals, and be able to overcome bigger obstacles?
  • ...spend more time doing and making (instead of talking, planning, and fixing)?
  • more confident about their future in your organization?

The Business of Community Tour is bringing our world renowned workshops to Gold Coast's 'Bleach* Festival, Melbourne's Coworking Australia, and Austin's GCUC.

Maybe your city could be next?

Join us for an in person, hands on, one day workshop to learn how to stay ahead of the curve by leading more collaborative, innovative, community-oriented organizations. Previous online & in-person workshops have been attended by a total of over 200 people in the last year.

Most organizations don't solve these problems on their own, even when they tried their damnedest

Having worked directly with dozens of organizations and their communities around the world, we've gotten to see the patterns of success...but not without also seeing the patterns of failure.

Here's a fun statistic: Exactly 0% of the people we've ever taught were intentionally trying to be ineffective leaders.

Even leaders with the best of intentions let things go off the rails more often than they don't, and by the time anybody notices, it's too late. Why is that? Here are a few of the reasons that we've noticed on our own, and others that we've found through research:
