What We Do
The progressive movement has a talent problem. We don’t have enough leaders and organizers capable of operating at a very high level. We train a select, diverse group of progressive leaders and organizers using workshops as well as three kinds of coaching – performance, organizational, and personal.
Strong, nimble, scarily powerful organizations are the key to shifting power back to average Americans from the Venal .1% who now run the country. We work with top leadership teams of progressive organizations to help make their organizations more strategic, powerful, and connected.
Leaders from across the progressive movement need to think and act together, not just everyone doing what they know how to do. We work with movement leaders toward building a strategic progressive movement capable of winning and holding onto the wins.
