Participating teams will experience:
- Engagement in a proven process that speeds problem-to-solution innovation
- Expert coaching that shapes conversations for results

Businesses Doing Good
From Sustainable to Flourishing Businesses and Communities
Today businesses are going beyond “sustainability” which reduces the ecological footprint, to “doing good” in the communities where they are based and in places where they offer their products or services. This is a movement toward flourishing businesses and communities.
GoodCities is creating communities of practice for business leaders in this new growing field in cities around the country.
Each month on the 3rd Thursday, Glenn Barth hosts a conference call which features one example of a business doing good in their community. These calls happen at 11:00 am EST and are open to anyone interested in learning more.
