Workshops & Retreats

Online or in-person workshops are designed to challenge, inspire and awaken participants to a fresh, new way of engaging with the world. Embracing the virtues within you and putting the Five Strategies into practice immediately changes how you relate to yourself and others - at work, home and in your community. Virtues open the door to growth and new opportunities.

Our team combines years of experience from education, entrepreneurship, leadership and non-profit management to create dynamic, transformational experiences for individuals, communities and organizations.

As humans, the relationships we form are vital to our well-being and even our survival. Healthy relationships allow individuals to bond and help each other. It allows teams or communities to operate as a unit.

Virtues Matter offers Connection Circles - in person and online - to help teams promote understanding, share experiences and build relationships.

Using the language of virtues, we help teams build trust, learn respect, and enjoy each others company.

Consulting & Speaking

Sometimes teams seek joy, meaning and purpose. Other times they need to solve complex problems. We will work with you to address the needs of your team — teachers, staff, leadership — that complements your existing norms, meets teams where they are. Whether revisiting core values, developing strategies around culture or changing team dynamics and behaviors, let us help.

We also deliver keynotes, moderate forums and speak on panels, often weaving in The Five Strategies of the Virtues Project. We speak on leadership, social entrepreneurship, sustainability, education, restorative justice, personal or professional development.
