Welcome To Engaged Thinking
A Human Centered Approach to Innovation

Engaging your Intellectual Capital Assets in Purpose Driven Innovation©


Engaged thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation. Its objective is to generate value by holistically engaging employees, consumers, and organizational systems (the intellectual capital assets of an organization), from the design to launch of products and services. Join our network as we create value:

  1. For the leader and innovator engaging employees and consumers in sustainable innovation.

  2. For the entrepreneur seeking new connections and shared purpose.

  3. And for our communities, as we design a purpose-filled, sustainable life for all. 


Add your voice to the discussion.

Engaged Thinking Academy Course:
Leading and Engaging on Purpose

Coming Soon

This course is intended to be a journey of self discovery and renewed confidence to connect with your value and beliefs to "lead and engage on purpose". Leading on purpose has relevance for your personal life, your family, your community, and your organization.


In this short course you will:

Better understand yourself and reconnect with your values and beliefs.
Learn about the science of purpose.
Consider how you can create a good life for yourself and others-through global citizenship and prosocial actions, expressing more gratitude, and living sustainably.

We will discuss how to think and work larger in your organization and community through innovation, corporate social responsibility, and the sustainable development goals. To do this you will: 
Assess all of the human skills you already have and need to develop as a leader to support your journey and others in their journey including human centered and moral leadership.
And begin to write the next chapter in your life with confidence-to lean into purpose as leaders, empower those who need to be empowered, and embed purpose into your organization.
