I found my people in The Value Web. Like me, they are forever searching for and trying out smart new ways for groups to work and decide together. We manage to raise the ambitions of people way beyond what they imagined was possible. Our learning paths enable them to reach new levels of relationship and results that are playful and difficult and that empower them to believe, again, in the power of we. In the best instances, people are transformed and recall that real work is fun and rewarding. It’s an especially delightful moment when participants are so hungry to take control of their future that they literally run back to work.
