The Thriving Approach

Upgrade the Software of Your Mind

At the Thriving Leadership Academy, we believe that mindset matters. Changing how we think—and assisting others to do the same—is the single most important leadership skill a person can develop because change is constant and a successful leader is one who knows how to adapt their behaviors and underlying mindset to optimize performance even amidst challenging times.

Bottom line: How we think determines how we act, which in turn drives the results we achieve.

The Book

Thriving in Business and Life has been called a "paradigm-shifting book" and a "breakthrough approach to leadership."


Having curated the brilliant ideas and processes of their own mentors and added a unique twist born out their own experience, authors (and Academy founders) Will Wilkinson and Christopher Harding are passing along a legacy of wisdom and essential practices learned through their years as executives, consultants, and coaches. The result?


Thriving in Business and Life provides readers with valuable techniques, tools, and resource information to assist them in dramatically improving their culture and their performance. Seasoned with personal stories and memorable anecdotes, Thriving is an entertaining and highly informative read.


Available in Paperback and Kindle formats.

Provided in both live, face-to-face sessions, and via phone and virtual meeting apps, the Thriving Coaching Process utilizes the essential practices from Thriving in Business and Life and is designed to enable dedicated leaders to focus on the particular challenges and opportunities they are faced with in real time in their day-to-day endeavors.


By adding coaching to the mix, leaders give themselves and added edge in ensuring that the principles that need the most attention in their own situations are tailored and applied to their specific needs in mind.


Our coaching process is designed to enable leaders with the ability to also coach others and to train others in the process of peer coaching and peer accountability. Because our coaches have had years of varied business experience themselves, our ability to provide highly practical support is a definite advantage.


We also provide coach-the-coach training programs for organizations desirous to build an internal coaching program. In addition, we have a coaching certification program for those individuals interested in utilizing the Thriving approach in their own coaching work.

Utilizing the 12 Essential Practices for Thriving in Business and Life that are the focus of the Online Course, the live course provides an opportunity for an even deeper immersion into these proven principles.

Structured for single-user or combined team participation, the Thriving online course is designed to enhance individual and group excellence both personally and professionally.


By using our own unique three-stage process (Learn it! Imagine it! and Do it!), we provide participants the chance to learn the principles of a practice, engage in imaginative simulations like athletes and other high-performers, and then "Go Live!" with a weekly Game Challenge that enables them to incorporate their learning into their day-to-day life.

One of our favorite testimonials from a recent user shares precisely what we hoped people would experience with this course:

"I just completed module one of this course and wow, it is absolutely fantastic! In all my years of personal growth training, this is right up there with the highest level. And the cool thing about it is whether you’re just now getting started on your personal growth journey or are the CEO of a Fortune 100 company you’re going to get a ton out of this. It can absolutely change your life for the better. Especially now with the world transforming into something new. They structured it like a game so it’s fun. Well done Will and Christopher!" ~ Suni Rae
