G.R.I.T. Dream TeamsTM

Lean Into Leadership | Inspire Innovation | Cultivate Creativity | Activate Awareness | Develop Dreams

In your G.R.I.T. Dream Team, you will build real, human connections with diverse, resilient, high-integrity leaders who value people over profits through facilitated confidential monthly intensive C.E.O.S. (Challenge, Encourage, Optimize, Strategize).  You will question each other's answers, blind spots and implicit biases, collectively tackle complex challenges and develop leadership super-powers, all in a sacred, B.R.A.V.E space for C.O.P.I.N.G.


Six-Cs for G.R.I.T. Dream Teams

Confidential Curiosity + Candid Compassion = Constructive ClarityTM

B.R.A.V.E. SpaceTM

Balanced: Everyone is engaged and provided growth opportunities to contribute and receive support and encouragement.

Reflective: Individuals serve as mirrors or opposing forces to each other, and learn through reflective inquiry.

Accountable: Say what you do, do what you say, commit to that which you are willing to complete, serve as confrontation partners.

Vulnerable: All are willing to get uncomfortable, offer and receive candid observations, emotionally exposed and taking risks with supportive trust.

Empathetic: Compassion for each other and a desire to understand, without judgment or assumption.

Connection + Challenge = Change (Dr. Abdul-Malik Muhammad, Ed.D)

"All of us, at some time or other, need help. Whether we're giving or receiving help, each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world. That's one of the things that connects us as neighbors - in our own way, each one of us is a giver and a receiver."

― Mr. Fred Rogers
