Check back here for when this program is released late summer 2021
New Paradigm Leadership is a short and intensive course designed for social innovation leaders, entrepreneurs, and anyone who is dedicated to creating positive impact. In this course, you will learn why change work often doesn't work — and what to do about it.
There are no recipes to successful change work, but there are archetypes and fundamentals, so we provide an overview of both a method and a leadership and capacity development path. This combination will prepare you to be more effective in your existing change work. Upon completion, you'll have the opportunity to advance to WorldMaker, our pro level course.
There is a total of 7 lessons, each with a video and exercise. You'll be part of a private Slack channel with your cohort. Meet new people, share your work, ask questions, engage with us.
Join our next Intensive Workshop if you:
Are driven by a higher calling and understand the complexities of the challenges you're facing, but have experienced burn out, overwhelm, and disappointment at your results.
Experience the tensions between mainstream and your vision for change. The pushback is too strong.
Desire to have more impact but you're stuck. You want to scale but can't make it happen.
Change is really, really hard! You don't understand why, you feel frustrated and helpless or confused.
What you'll learn:
We reveal what most social change efforts get wrong, and the big blind spot that these efforts cannot touch.
Learn about the actual "creative medium' of change, and it's fractal nature. This will transform how you see yourself as a change Leader and expand your understanding of your potential.
Learn the taxonomy of the creative medium of social change, how to get to know it in yourself first, and feel inspired to get to work in a new and more empowered way.
"From day one, Jeff and Louisa's mentorship have had a transformative effect on my life. They are generous teachers with an unparalleled understanding of the inner life, human creativity, and the nuts and bolts of true productivity and entrepreneurship. I would literally be a different person if it weren't for their influence." — Nathan Heintz
"[My husband and I] recognized many of the elements we wanted to hone already inherent in Jeff and Louisa - the collective social architects presencing from the future we all want. It's been an invaluable partnership with robust theory and lot of loving clear guidance through deep personal attunement, applicable to my whole being - the person, the mama and householder and the co-generator of effective change in the world." — Ece Anderson

Each lesson covers the essentials you need to know about leading new paradigm change work
Each video is around 10 minutes long. The exercises will take half an hour — or two hours. Take a lighter approach, or dive deep.
Lesson 1: The problems and Limits of Systems Change — we’ll dig into the problems with solving problems and also what we call “fractal failure” — how personal, team, institutional, and societal challenges are fractals of the same roots.
Lesson 2: The Creativity Arc — learn about our unique method for designing, iterating, and navigating through the highly complex and challenging nature of true transformation.
Lesson 3: The Creative Medium — we'll explore what the creative medium of social change actually is, and how we get to know it.
Lesson 4: The Real Paradigm Shift — we'll reveal what really rules the world, and dig deep into the biggest blind spot of social change.
Lesson 5: The Fractal Nature of Culture — we'll reveal the open secret, and single most important take away from this course, that this fractal nature contains.
Lesson 6: Re-imagining Change: Social Threefolding — we'll walk you through the activation of culture through the lens of Threefolding, our diagnostic and social design tool.
Lesson 7: Putting It All Into Action — we'll go into why practice is the heart and soul of transformation, both in social change and in your life and work.
All this for the price of a night out!
Take a dive into new ideas, concepts, experiences — a new world of options you didn't know existed for you.
