We are the generation that shapes the new millennium.

In a world that appears to be sleepwalking towards extinction, let us not forget the bigger story. This is an unprecedented time to be alive. We get to reap the fruits of human ingenuity, ignite a revolution in human consciousness, and harness untapped collective power.

The new guard of professionals, founders, and public servants is ready to lead the way for society. We inherited institutions, industries, and cultures on the brink of metamorphosis. Our success revolves around being in a state of mastery with ourselves, our relations, and the purpose of our work.

Ready for a level-up?

There are career milestones that seriously raise the bar and push us beyond our comfort zone. At this stage, the technical chops and hard work that made us successful are no longer enough.

Whether we got the privilege to attend elite programs or had to learn from experience, the skills required to be an effective leader are continuously developed through lifelong learning.

At the intersection of ancient wisdom and modern science, we get to hone our mastery through skills such as emotional regulation, clear communication, conflict resolution, and strategic thinking.

Want to shake things up?

Extraordinary times call forth extraordinary people. Some of us may be feeling that our colleagues are sleepwalking. We may disagree with the strategic direction of our organization or industry. Perhaps we have no more patience for obsolete path dependencies and short-sighted thinking.

There is a whole new game emerging that promises a brighter future for those who get on board. People and institutions are conditioned to resist change, so effective leadership is required.

Let us always remember that we are not alone. This revolution is happening on more levels than we can fathom. It’s time for us to come together and join forces to reshape our institutions.

Meet the founder:

Erik Desrosiers

I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and was the first in my community to attend elite institutions. For decades, I’ve devoted myself to reshaping business paradigms and creating a more prosperous, inclusive environment for humans to thrive.

My own journey of mastery has woven together vastly diverse experiences from executive suites to deep jungle isolation. I’ve been blessed with challenges and revelations that have taught me to love myself fully and have guided me into a heart-centered way of living.

As a bridge between worlds, I combine management science with practical wisdom to shape strategies that unlock unseen possibilities and enable breakthrough results. Entrepreneurs and enterprise executives have found working with me to be a lasting advantage.

Rethinking “Normal” at Work

As uncertainty rises in the world today, so does talk of normal. Why do we want normal — or even a new normal? How can business and policy leaders show people a more nuanced understanding of the concept of normality? Better yet, how do we transcend it altogether?

An Actionable Roadmap for Self-Disruption

The future looks bright for those who have faith in the power of human ingenuity.
