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.

#26. BlackRock’s Regeneration | Frank Cooper III
Can capitalism coincide with the conservation and regeneration of our planet? So far, most of the signs point to no, but there are optimists among us.

By injecting creativity and sustainability into an age-old economic model, he’s one of just a handful of leaders who are inspiring the world’s largest institutions to start thinking beyond the next quarter and start thinking about the next generation.

#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.
