Why Work with Us?

Humans are social beings. We’re shaped in every way imaginable through our interactions within the companies and organizations that touch our professional lives. There is great power and opportunity in our teams, and if we want to transform not just our own lives but also our communities and our world, we must learn how to transform and mobilize collectively with others.

Seven Stones works with enterprises, non-profit organizations, and colleges and universities to develop a whole suite of customized frameworks that address a wide range of needs. Our services include:

  • A Platinum Coaching program for founders, board chairs and members of the senior leadership team willing to make a yearlong coaching commitment that will support them in achieving outrageous results
  • Transformational Coaching geared toward senior executives and high-potential employees
  • Coaching for teams and groups
  • Workshops, training and facilitation
  • Organizational consulting
  • Speaking engagements

Within the organizational context, Seven Stones partners with business owners and entrepreneurs, supervisors, managers, directors, C-level executives and board members, as well as groups and teams, to craft and then respond to the questions that are critical to the future of your organization.

Working together with us, you’ll learn to:

  • Re-think your beliefs, and ditch the ones getting in the way of your future
  • Get in shape to innovate and respond to the opportunities and challenges of a complex world
  • Find new solutions and pathways that serve your organizational community
  • Gain access to and confidence in your ability to think strategically
  • Align plans and actions to the strategic vision of your organization
  • Lead your organization through times of change with dignity, grace and vision
  • Stand for a world that works for all beings, not just a few

As we work together, you’ll come to discover that you’re part of a larger movement—a movement that believes and declares that the world can be a thriving, just and fulfilling place for us all. This includes looking at stakeholders with fresh eyes, asking what is enough on a finite planet and learning to create workplaces that truly sustain the people who serve them.

4 Virtual Learning Sessions plus 6-month Racial Affinity Group Experience

For this learning path, you will participate in the 4 virtual learning sessions and be enrolled in one of three Racial Affinity Groups:

1) People who identify as People of Color (Black, Indigenous, Asian, Hispanic)

2) People who identify as Bi-Racial or Multi-Racial

3) People who identify as White

*More specific affinity groups may be formed upon the completion of course registration

We believe that it is important to do our own work with people with similar racial experiences to build capacity for cross-race dialogue that supports authentic relationships and deep belonging for everyone. We will ask you to self-select into the group that best aligns with your racial identity. We recognize that for some this is not a simple choice and we are available to have a conversation with you to support your selection.

Together we will:

  • Reflect personally and collectively on the impact of embodied trauma, separation, scarcity and disconnection.
  • Work in learning partners and/or small groups for the sake of holding each other accountable and deepening our learning through multiple disciplines.
  • Engage in embodied practices for unwinding from the impact of racism in order to build stamina, capacity, and resilience.

4 Virtual Learning Sessions Only

These four learning sessions will provide you with a new view and innovative framing of the problem as we see it. Below is a brief description of what will take place in each session:

  • Learning Session 1: Why Context Matters
    In session one, we look at our individualist narratives and the impact of not understanding the context in which we exist. 
  • Learning Session 2: Unpacking Trauma
    In session two, we discuss individual and collective trauma. We define trauma and look together about our current systems of inequality and how they evoke trauma-like responses in so many of us.
  • Learning Session 3: Global Anti-Black Racism: A History Lesson
    In session three, we get a history lesson like none other: we explore the global slave trade as the foundation for our current economic model.
  • Learning Session 4: Understanding Power
    In our last session, we examine power; power structures, our relationships with personal power; the importance of learning a healthy relationship with power when so many of us have had power abuse in our lives.
