For every leader, there’s an Elevation. What's an elevation? A moment or series of moments of clarity that can be put into action to elevate your life or purpose. We elevate through empathy, respect, inspiration, impact and maybe most of all, diversity of thought. Why do we do it? Leaders are taught to be so self-reliant, they often lose themselves. We believe that clarity of purpose is a human necessity and that sharing is the best philosophy for leadership. We turn the challenges we face into conversations and those conversations into clarity.

#32. Modern Elders Academy | Chip Conley
We live in a society that tends to think that all the lessons, all the wisdom, all the experiences we’ve gained are only relevant to a particular time, or place, or industry, or sport, or discipline. Because of that tendency, one of the most untapped commodities on the planet is age and the wisdom that comes with it. Chip Conley, founder of Modern Elder Academy, the world’s first midlife wisdom school, has built a community that isn’t just helping those who’ve earned that wisdom believe in it, but also helping them reignite it and reapply it to things they and the rest of the world never thought possible.
#31. Taking on Taboo | Michael Hebb
How we address (or fail to address) the end of our lives can define everything that happened before and everything that will happen next for the people we leave behind. As founder of the End of Life community and deathoverdinner.org, Michael Hebb is asking more and more of us to come to the table to have some of life’s most challenging and fulfilling conversations. He believes that having open conversations about a subject we’re far too willing to ignore can change the way we live and the way we die.
#30. Bear Necessities | Casey Anderson and Elke Govertsen
Language is man’s most distinguishing factor amongst all other species on earth. It is our primary method of connection. There are, however, far more powerful modes of connecting with the world around us that many are yet to experience.
Casey Anderson is one of those people who has unlocked this method of emotional ecology with wildlife. As an American filmmaker, wildlife naturalist, television host, and most notably the “best friend” of late Brutus the Bear – a grizzly bear he adopted as a newborn cub – Casey is an expert on the art of connecting.
Please join author and fellow Montanan Elke Govertsen and the EB community in conversation with Casey in this powerful discussion of connection and communication with the great species who share the world in which we live.
#29. Collaborative Composition | Kipper and Philip Sheppard
The history and future of composition is collaborative. No one knows this better than Grammy Award winning guitarist, keyboardist and record producer, Kipper Eldridge and award-winning film, TV and video-game composer, and cellist Philip Sheppard. Between them, they’ve collaborated with musicians like Sting, Gary Numan, Jimmy Page and Leona Lewis. Today they talk about the beauty, fear and magic of collaboration.
