Expanding Perceptions. Shifting Paradigms.

We are simultaneously experiencing the largest civil protests in 50 years, the lingering effects of the deadliest pandemic in 100 years, and the highest temperatures since records began 150 years ago.

Our daunting challenges are highly influenced by emotional ties, cultural values, or behavioral habits that prevent people and organizations from changing, even when they see that their surrounding context has completely changed. 

But lack of action is not caused by lack of knowledge.To act differently, people must see differently.

The urgency of today calls for actions that integrate knowledge from different disciplines with design approaches that let us think big, start small, and grow fast. To unleash transformation, we need audacious initiatives in their optimism, speed, scale, and scope.

As the CEO of Leap and Research Scientist at Brown School of Public health, I help leaders across sectors and industries expand their perceptions about challenges – and opportunities – in front of them.

I lead capacity building programs for organizations interested in going beyond incremental changes, and conduct solution-oriented research focused on the well-being of people, organizations, and the natural environment.
