The Alembic is a program designed to help talented leaders move into their highest potential. Every organization has individuals who excel at everything they do—and enrich every environment they enter. But individuals with extraordinary potential are usually given only ordinary development opportunities.
I experience people as a blend of how they are expressing in the present and how they could be expressing in the future. Because of this, what might seem impossible to them often seems already within reach to me.
Good agreements are almost impossible to break—they take so much into account there’s very little that can break down.
Presence is what allows us to shift a room, inspire a group, and precipitate change—by simply showing up. Presence is how we inform a space—without saying a word.

About the Program
Explore the Creative Agreements Deck.
Good agreements are almost impossible to break—they take so much into account there’s very little that can break down. Good agreements are creative—something is made possible that could not exist before. Good agreements are enabling and allow people to experience something they could not experience without each other.
Poor agreements are most often based in fear—keeping something out, defending against loss, or staying in the comfort zone. Poor agreements usually take very little into account—they are made to address the needs of the one. Poor agreements are hard to keep and frequently break down when the context shifts.
The best agreements expand domain and provide greater, not lesser, degrees of freedom. They help create a habitat best suited to growth and learning.
As we design better agreements with each other, our relationships are more powerful, more exciting, and thrive over time. Creating good agreements is the most important work we do with each other.
