The Vibrancy Story

Observed Behavior

We have found tens of thousands of groups, organizations, and communities who experience great results and great experiences, every day. At first we thought these groups would be full of very special people, people who were richer, smarter, better educated, and more experienced than everyone else. That is not what we found. We found millions of very normal people; people just like most of us who live very differently than most of us. While most of us seem to experience lots of scarcity, quite often disengaged from our work, these people are very engaged, experiencing abundance. And they have been doing this for years, right there in front of us.

What This Means

This means that we can all live this way. Lots of people are living the life we all want, every day. Having great experiences and achieving great outcomes, sustainably. If these millions of normal people have figured out how, this means that we can too, as individuals, as teams, as organizations, as communities, as the world.

What We Did

We wanted to understand what they were doing, so that we could learn from them and with them, and share with others what they are learning. So we visited dozens of them. We asked hundreds of groups if they wanted this. We developed a survey to help us find many more. Over the past five years, we tried what we had learned with 120 other groups, and we tried it on our own, starting major efforts from these principles.

What We Found

Everyone says they want an abundance of resources, they want to experience higher vibrancy in everything they do, and they want greater harmony in their interactions with others. Friends in England, families in Portugal, foundation program officers in the USA, government officials in Germany, university sustainability leaders in USA, youth ambassadors and township leaders in South Africa, community leaders in Romania, school teachers and administrators in Mexico, Germany, and the USA. They all want the choice for greater vibrancy, every day.

What This Means For You

Vibrancy is a choice. A choice you can make every day. Like the people we are finding around the world, you too can choose your experience and the outcomes you achieve.

To support you in choosing greater vibrancy in your experience and greater impact resilience in your outcomes, we have developed four pathways, depending on how you would prefer to engage.

  • If you prefer to do it all on your own, we provide content about the know why, know what, and know how.
  • If you would like someone to guide you along the journey, we can connect you with guides who will co-invest in that journey with you.
  • If you would like to meet other like-minded people, we can connect you with them.
  • If you would like to learn about what we are learning, you can participate in our research.

Four different ways for you to engage, to support you in choosing vibrancy.
