Working groups that “hack” solutions to current and near-future people challenges

What’s a Collective?

When you join a Collective, you enlist in a crusade to solve current and near-future people challenges with some of the most thoughtful people leaders out there.

Together, we leverage research, in-room idea generation and structured problem-solving to find actionable, implementable solutions. And we do this on an accelerated schedule because we know you needed the answers to these challenges yesterday.

Collective members get:
  • Three highly-interactive, 1.5-day long in-person meetings, spread over an 8-month period
  • A network of smart and thoughtful people with whom to people to collaborate
  • Ongoing facilitated virtual discussions between meetings
  • Online meeting place for ongoing collaboration
  • First access to insights and influence on new research
