What We Do

Drawing upon over five decades of clinical, leadership, and organizational experience between its co-founders, TGW was established in 2011 to design and implement social impact initiatives nationally and internationally in settings coping with environments of relentless change and increasing complexity. TGW projects target collective capacity-building and skills-based training to amplify generativity, optimize performance, and build resilience in individuals, work teams, enterprises, and communities.

Transformational Leadership

Resilience is a core competency for effective transformational leadership. We work with enterprises and communities to develop practices and procedures that promote agility, compassion, and creativity within organizations facing rapid, often chaotic change. TGW projects incorporate and apply contributions from neuroscience through skills-based applications which are appropriate cross-culturally in diverse systems. Our approach includes brain-training and attentional practices, self-care tools, and networking strategies that build collaborative linkages, reduce burn-out, moral distress, and bullying.

Settings benefiting from SRM include multi-national enterprises, educational institutions, health care settings, criminal justice settings, and communites/villages nationally and internationally.

Global Human Security

Threshold GlobalWorks has a conceptual framework that includes human security and a focus on enlisting the strengths of our veterans and amplifying optimum performance of first responders. Working at the systems/enterprise level, TGW’s Social Resilience Model (SRM) includes practical interventions which build collaborative intelligence and peak performance: “Protecting vital freedom. It means protecting people from critical and pervasive threats and situations and building on their strengths and aspirations. It also means creating systems that give people building blocks of survival, dignity, and livelihood. Human security connects different types of freedom, freedom from want, freedom from fear, and freedom to take actions on one’s own behalf.” (Commission on Human Security, 2003).

Writings & Public Presentations

As social entrepreneurs, at Threshold GlobalWorks we are committed to disseminating our ideas, learning from others, and broadening our impact by writing, public presentations, and collaboration with social impact partners. To this end, summer 2013 marked the launch of our blog. We have ebooks and articles in process on aspects of our Social Resilience Model. Our research in Rwanda will be published in 2017 and we will launch the PeaceBuilder Model, a collaborative intervention that bridges difference and promotes principled, resilient behavior. A major focus in 2017 is the launch of a platform that will enable us to scale the SRM and RZone Skills far beyond what we can do via face-to-face training.
