Active Growth

       Living a fulfilling and productive life is possible, but it doesn’t happen accidentally. We must intentionally instill and actively pursue the qualities, characteristics, and practices that lead to healthy growth. Living abundantly and becoming a wonderful expression of the people we were created to be, requires that we actively pursue and instill the qualities that will take us from good ideas to substance.

All growth is not healthy growth. 

    We can all relate to the truth that too much input without proper output does not bode well for our bodies. In other words, growing bigger does not necessarily mean growing more robust, more adaptive, and ready to take on the challenges of each day. We need both the proper input (wisdom, knowledge, and information) and the proper output (activity, practices, collaboration, and embodied character qualities) to experience optimal health and growth. That holds both as a physical reality for our bodies and our formation as individuals and organizations. 

    When certain qualities are active and growing in our lives, we have the substance needed for healthy activity and growth. There is no magic formula or an easy fix; vigorous growth is a journey that takes both time and commitment. Because every individual and organization is different, healthy productivity and growth require experimentation, practice, and patience. Just as enduring buildings require sturdy foundations, we also need to take the steps necessary to ensure that our lives and organizations are built on substance and will exemplify our values. 


    Active growth is a way of being, adopting qualities that permeate every area of life. We help individuals and organizations experience active growth by providing coaching in manageable, bite-sized chunks. Dynamic change and development are not generally complicated but require a commitment to actively implementing and living the qualities and characteristics imbued in healthy people and organizations. To grow, we all need deep inner honesty and a desire for clarity regarding our deepest motivations. Our passion is to encourage individuals and organizations to build in and practice qualities and characteristics that improve lives, interactions, and operations.
