Creative leadership is more important than ever, particularly leadership that engages people through meaningful and constructive participation.

We are in the throes of turbulence and volatility, breeding unprecedented anxiety. Leadership that engages people through meaningful and constructive participation is more critical than ever. This requires an exceptional ability to listen and communicate. The leaders and their teams who excel in this will successfully compete in these tumultuous times.

The work of Social Craftsmanship is rooted in my work over the past 3+ decades across the US and globe convening people in varied settings, including manufacturing environments, offshore pipelaying campaigns, fabrication yards, the remote Texas Panhandle, tech environments, professional service firms, not-for-profits, and government offices. I’ve been consistently struck by how, under the right conditions, a group’s natural intelligence, creativity, and passion flourish, joy returns, and previously unthinkable results become possible.

Through Social Craftsmanship, leaders and their teams:

  • Uncover what is holding down morale and engagement
  • Approach challenges in more effective, creative ways
  • Craft a new story that generates optimism and purpose
  • Adopt structures that sustain energy and increase collaboration
  • Produce extraordinary results
