Working with Evergreen

Simply put, at Evergreen Leadership we help leaders and the organizations they lead learn the skills needed to thrive in a state of flux. Today’s environment, in business, education, and non-profit, is buffeted by an unprecedented velocity of change on all fronts. The only thing likely to change is that the pace of change will get faster and even more unrelenting. Leading and working in today’s world requires a different skill set – of everyone. 

Our focus is on agility, a deep sense of purpose, collaboration and creativity. We don’t just teach these skills; we live them. Our work with our partner clients is a living example of how a deep sense of purpose, creativity, collaboration and agility can create lasting, meaningful results.

What is an Evergreen Leader?

Evergreen leaders share many of the same traits that make evergreens in nature so resilient. Leaders in our programs learn to continually shed what is of no use to them and allow new, healthy growth to appear. Evergreen leaders can find a foothold in even some of the most inhospitable environments. Evergreen leaders nurture their soil and roots and create a climate where other can thrive. Evergreen leaders adapt to the conditions they are in – and find ways to fit into their ecosystem.

How is Evergreen Different Than Traditional Leadership?

Evergreen leaders have the capability to use a new, more adaptive approach to leadership, the skills called for in today’s complex, changing and connected world.

• Able to provide clarity and direction in the midst of uncertainty
• Willing to engage others in creating a better future
