Our History

We have practiced leadership and organization development work for over 25 years. The Silkesnas Preserve was created for environmental leadership development in 1999 and permanently conserved in 2007.

How We Work

We specialize in the here and now with an eye toward the future, drawing upon insights from the past and the wisdom inherent in our natural environment. Where others see limitations, we see leverage points and possibilities. 

We have witnessed firsthand how alignment of purpose unleashes incredible power in organizations, communities, and teams. Alignment fosters life in all living systems. For that reason, we have made it the foundational concept of our work. It informs and drives how we approach leadership development, organization development, individual development, community development, and sustainability initiatives.

Innovative Thinking - Holistic Approaches - Powerful Outcomes

What We Do

We encourage strategic, systems thinking in all we do, assisting organizations, communities, and individuals to create, lead, and sustain healthy, productive places to live and work.
