"YOU CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM IN THE SAME CONSCIOUSNESS THAT CREATED IT" - ALBERT EINSTEIN
Abroad is a Human Transformation Platform℠ that seamlessly integrates people analytics, coaching, cohort-based learning, and personalized digital content to unlock individual and organizational flourishing. In the first phase of our mission, Abroad is working with global leadership networks, innovative organizations, forward-thinking nations, and indigenous wisdom keepers to holistically develop leaders and usher forth the Wellbeing Economy for the benefit of all.
We named ourselves Abroad because the pinnacle of our human development occurs in wisdom cultures abroad, but what Abroad refers to is “seeing beyond the horizon of what we know.”
Our team uses the following principles to guide our strategy and daily rhythms with the understanding it's about the journey, not the destination.
Actualize Our Potential
We challenge our deepest assumptions and operate with a beginner’s mindset to see beyond the horizon of what we know.
We are generative, iterative, and embrace the unknown as an essential path to recognizing our collective potential.
Autonomy & Accountability
We take full responsibility for our freedom, agreements, and
creative impact and therefore attract top talent.
Impact is our Bottom Line
We motivate from the heart and thrive by generating meaningful and sustained impact for the people we serve.
We cannot do this alone, every relationship matters, and it’s time
to evolve from competition to cooperation and collaboration.
Abroad Wisdom Board
To ensure the highest integrity of our offerings, we created an advisory board of wisdom keepers to guide the strategy and development of our organization beyond the business/financial aspects.
Our indigenous partners have a significant ownership stake in Abroad and have full autonomy to use the proceeds toward the social and environmental causes that could benefit most.
The simple truth is without nature, the incredible cultures we visit, and the thousands of years of wisdom that has preceded us on what it means to live a flourishing life, Abroad's vision is not possible.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Abroad
As an international company with team members and clients all over the world, we actively seek to hire team members, contractors, and vendors from all generations and identities. We also acknowledge that we’re learning and growing, and thus are continually becoming aware of the things we can do to improve Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Abroad.
