Member Partners

 I’m active in the following organizations, and encourage you to check them out:

  • Certified B Corp: A global movement with the core premise of “business as a force for good.” I have been involved with this community since 2011, and was the fifth Certified B Corp in Vermont (out of 33). You’ll recognize a lot of familiar names here – Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, Eileen Fisher, etc.  
  • Social Venture Circle: A national organization of progressive business leaders, SVC is the recent merger of the Social Venture Network and Investor’s Circle. One deep benefit to me has been a Peer Circle with five of my most cherished colleagues, and we meet virtually every month, and we’re now in our 8th year!
  • 1% for the Planet: Started by Yvon Chouinard, the Founder of Patagonia on the basic belief that the environment needs our contributions to preserve and protect our precious Earth.
  • Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility: My home state organization, now in its 29th year, and with over 650 members it is one of the largest groups of its kind in North America.

Books & Articles

I do consider myself fortunate to be a writer, and have written and published two books and numerous articles.  The most recent is Balanced Effectiveness at Work: How to Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor without Driving Yourself Nuts. 2014, Starr Farm Press. It’s available at your local independent bookstore. I’m proud that some significant thought leaders endorsed this book, including Marshall Goldsmith, Mark Albion, and Shainoor Khoja, as well as twenty-four others.

Wholistic Work Podcast

Now you can access short but substantial topics from the areas of using business as a force for good, tips for living well, and how to contribute to positive change in the world. Each episode runs from twelve to twenty minutes and provides a balance between reflection and action. Podcasts are available on Apple, Spotify, Buzzsprout, iHeartRadio, and here on this site.

If something you hear sparks some interest on your part, I’d love to know!
