Watch the Launch Celebration

Three Colors, Twelve Notes
Available Now!

“I believe that whole human beings show up in the workplace and in communities. It’s important to uncover, discover, and celebrate the different aspects of oneself to bring the best self to whatever effort—including work—you are investing energy in. Taking the time to get to know yourself, and all your messiness, helps you openly and honestly get to know others, and all their messiness. This leads to better relationships­—in families, communities, organizations, and nations. An open, curious mind is a vital ingredient to a
rich life. Deepening a habit of reflection in one’s own life supports the integration of reflection and aligned action in one’s professional life, a critical leadership skill for the 21st century.

Ultimately, I hope you find this collection of words and stories and invitations meaningful, inspiring, provocative and enjoyable.”
