What you will learn:
Each of us have a story to tell. Rooted from our experiences and beginnings in life. According to Richard Barrett, “What My Soul Told Me,” founder of the Academy for the Advancement of Human Values, “Without a story, life becomes meaningless. Our stories serve two main functions: they help us to place ourselves in the big picture – explain who we are, why we are here, and the purpose of our lives; and, they also help us to make decisions, so we can navigate more easily through our experiences; they give us a framework of rules, beliefs and values to guide our decision-making..”
Come be part of this journey to create your own story. And carry with confidence your roots wherever your life path takes you. This experience ultimately puts you in the driver’s seat of your story, language, outcomes, dreams, hopes, wishes and desires.
“Language is the bridge between the uncreated and the created worlds. It is both the ultimate reality and the instrument through which reality is brought forth.” Parabola
Business leaders today are creating their storyline with every decision:
- What is the Purpose of their organization and for themselves
- What is the Character they want to be
- What is the Plot or net outcome of their work and vision
- What other Characters (or Stakeholders) are involved
- How do they build a sustainable model of:
- Positive outcomes
- Making a difference
- Changing lives
- Creating new ecosystems
- Developing transformative thinking and action
- Creating change through social innovation and impact
We go through a number of values-based exercises and can also create the participant’s very own ‘storybook’.
About the instructor:
Darby Hobbs is a change agent, creator, producer, and storyteller focused on Social Innovation and determining growth opportunities in the areas of greatest social and environmental impact.
Through Darby's firm, SOCIAL3, she works with entrepreneurs to mid-stage and large public companies, engaging with them to develop business ideas for the greater global good and direct benefit to local and global communities alike. Coming with over 20 years from the investment industry as a global strategist, product developer and marketing/brand specialist, Darby understands the human psyche and what triggers brand engagement.
Darby is certified in Corporate Social Responsibility and have worked in the area of Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) and Impact Investing over the past 12 years. Beyond working with business leaders, she also engages with financial intermediaries to educate and prepare them for integrating more purpose and value into their practice. At the same time, Darby works with their clients to align their values and passions with life decisions and most specifically their investment strategies. The goal is bringing to life the triple bottom line (people, planet, profit) and refining a firm's overall purpose (Conscious Capitalism, Stakeholder Capitalism, Responsible Leadership, Shared Value, etc.).
Through their LivingWellTM approach, individuals learn about themselves, their own purpose, that of their firm they are working with and how to be that bridge in society towards redefining value and being part of what she defines as, the Circular Nature of Conscious Capital Formation. There is a new InvestingDNATM in our midst driven by what Darby terms, the Heart AccountTM, making most of us very aware of our Financial ChakraTM - applying money towards a greater global good. Through Magic, Imagination, and Creativity Darby brings participants through a sequence of learning that evokes curiosity and innovation, that has them understand their 'super power' and how they can effect change and work collectively towards a greater global mission.
In her work, Darby explores with individuals the importance of the following and how it gets factored into their everyday lives. Love, Compassion, Kindness, Empathy, Faith, Fear, Hope, Freedom, Dream, Joy, Inspire (In Spirit), Curiosity, Leadership, Loyalty, Truth, Respect, Integrity, Honesty, Trust, Wisdom, and Perspective.
Currently authoring a book with 48 leading global specialists, The NEW Way: Connecting the Heart, to the Mind, to the Wallet (Getting at the Heart of the Matter).
