Welcome to Inspire to Change

Centering inquiry and wellbeing in work toward whole, beautiful, and liberated realities.

About Inspire to Change

We support purpose-driven change and changemakers around the globe for a more whole, beautiful, and just world. 

We strive to support whole systems healing--ways of being and doing that cultivate the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities, organizations, societies, and the environment by living and acting with an awareness of the wholeness and the interconnectedness of all living systems.  

Our Guiding Principles

Our guiding principles are our core values translated into actionable statements. They focus our thinking, inform our decisions, and direct our actions. Our principles are: Be & Become, Remember & Create, Learn & Unlearn, and Disrupt & Liberate.

Our Approach

Our approach, Creative Evaluation & Engagement (CE&E), is flipping what learning, evaluation, and research for social change looks and feels like on its head. We aren't about logic models, SMART goals, or silver bullets that over-simplify problems. We believe that complex problems require complex solutions that emerge out of trust-based relationships and creative imagining. We view the whole person, our histories and stories as interconnected and important. We view lived experiences as expertise. We believe people should be in charge of their own learning, decision-making, and adaptation. We facilitate with all of this in mind as we take you through a process of aligning, learning, adapting, and embodying. 

Our Services

We work with changemakers in various ways, depending on their needs. Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • Coaching. We provide individual, group, and team-based coaching on topics related to creativity, engagement, evaluation, principles-driven work, and healthy changemaking.
  • Convening. We gather people for alignment, learning, adaptation, and embodiment. We both host our own events and can host yours.
  • Research and Evaluation. We facilitate learning, evaluation, and research processes so you can learn what matters, in real-time, and maximize your contributions to a whole, beautiful, and just world. 
  • Courses. We offer in-person and online courses for changemakers to support you in your purpose-driven personal, professional, and organizational growth.
