Our Purpose & Vision
Abroad’s vision is to actualize human potential and co-create the wellbeing economy -- a purposeful economy in service of human and ecological flourishing. To achieve our vision, we balance science and ancient wisdom to address limiting mindsets and outdated definitions of success that are preventing humans and organizations from creating a society that works for everyone.
The vision for Abroad was born November 2015 in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, a nation best known for its Gross National Happiness initiative that measures the collective happiness of its people. During a soul-searching quest, a group of coaches, emotion psychologists, and wisdom keepers serendipitously connected with a group of business leaders from one of the top business schools at the Gross National Happiness conference. At a dinner that evening at the COMO Uma Paro Hotel, the groups explored how psychology, emotions, and ancient philosophy could be applied to high-performance entrepreneurship and business. The group later discovered this fateful dinner was a catalyst for lifelong friendships and evolutionary collaborations.
