D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?

My dream is that communities would be built to support interrelatedness. The structures including green spaces, sidewalks, porches; the institutions including assisted living, schools, community centers, and churches; and the people including mixed income, diverse families would be intentionally modeled for self-sufficiency by neighborhood.

Such a Rush: Quick Encouragement about Next

Think about your achievements and your disappointments.
Those things you wanted, and those you are happy that you didn’t get.

What are your patterns, your thoughts, and your words. What are you attracting?

I submit that the natural laws, beyond the law of attraction, are useful for prediction. You can know what you will get, what will happen, because it is YOUR will that creates the outcome.

The Bias is Creating Value (MAWMedia Commercial 04)

I am the first to admit that our implementation is biased. It challenges you to contribute value to YOU, the MARKET you sell to, and the COMMUNITY you create. The process is based in complex adaptive systems, but simply stated, it is Resource Management, Market Analysis, and Social Good.

Creativity, value in YOU, is the resource to manage along with time, money, relationships (with people), and information. We work with you to develop productive habits—the lifestyle of a producer. This is in directly contrast with strict consumerism.

Entrepreneurship, your channel into the MARKET, is what we analyze to identify channels, collect data, tell stories, and create value. We work with you to identify and develop your market. We help you to connect with customers creating value.

Ownership, your legacy of value to the COMMUNITY, is the good you accomplish through a both/and approach to sustainability, social responsibility, advocacy (including philanthropy), and profit-for-reinvestment (profit-sharing/livable wages). We outline opportunities for you to globalize your reach with smart, sustainable growth strategy. You scale to increase both your social good footprint and your profit.

Method, Model, and Technique (MAWMedia Commercial 03)

After a session, clients often ask how I do what I do. My success is a result of a method, a model, and a central technique. I developed each of these from a continuing practice of empirical research and integration of practice wisdom.

The method is called the COACHMethod. It is an ecological systems-based intervention model, scalable, modular, and fractal. The model is termed the CEO Leadership Model, an acronym. The C is for creativity. The E is for Entrepreneurship. The O is for Ownership. The central technique is called GamePlanning. Every client who receives coaching completes a GamePlan in our first official session.
