Our Vision

To actualize human potential and co-create the wellbeing economy

"You cannot solve a problem in the same consciousness that created it." - Albert Einstein

Abroad is a Human Transformation Platform℠ that combines coaching, education, and research to actualize leadership, organizational, and portfolio potential. In the first phase of our mission, Abroad is working with global leadership networks, innovative organizations, and forward thinking nations to holistically develop leaders and usher forth the #WellbeingEconomy for the benefit of all. 

We named ourselves Abroad because the pinnacle of our human development occurs in countries like Bhutan and New Zealand, but what Abroad refers to is “seeing beyond the horizon of what we know.”  

Our Values

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. 

Entrepreneurial Spirit

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, self mastery, 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.

Collective Purpose

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 our organization 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.
