The Thriving Approach

Upgrade the Software of Your Mind

Mindset matters.

Changing how we think—and assisting others to do the same—is the single most important leadership skill a person can develop. Why? Because change is constant and a successful leader knows how to adapt their mindset and behaviors to optimize performance especially during challenging times.


The Bottom Line: How we think determines how we act, which creates the results we achieve.

The Book


Thriving in Business and Life has been called a "Paradigm-shifting book," a "Breakthrough approach to leadership" and "One the best business books published in the last 10 years." 


Co-Founders and Authors Will Wilkinson and Christopher Harding have curated the brilliant ideas and processes from their personal mentors, adding a unique twist born from their own experience.  The result? A legacy of wisdom and essential practices learned through their two lifetimes of experience as executives, consultants, and coaches. The result?


Thriving in Business and Life provides readers with valuable techniques, tools, and resource information to dramatically improve their organizational culture and their personal and team performance. Thriving is an entertaining and highly informative read, seasoned with personal stories and memorable anecdotes, .


Available in Paperback and Kindle formats.



Provided virtually or live, the Thriving Coaching process customizes its 12 Essential Practices to enable dedicated leaders to focus on the particular challenges and opportunities they face in real-time during their day-to-day activities.


Leaders who add Thriving Coaching to the mix give themselves an added edge, ensuring that those principles needing the most attention in their personal situations get tailored to their specific needs.


Because our Thriving Coaches have years of successful business experience themselves, their ability to provide highly practical support to clients is an added advantage. The Thriving Coaching process is also automatically scaled to enable our clients to begin the journey to become coaches themselves as they learn to guide and train others through peer coaching and peer accountability.


We also provide coach-the-coach training programs for organizations to build their own internal coaching program. In addition, we offer a coaching certification program for practicing coaches to add the Thriving materials to their own coaching work.
