Our Why

If you’ve listened to the riveting TED talk by Simon Sinek, you know all about the big, all-encompassing WHY; why are we here? Why are we doing what we’re doing? Why should you want to be a part of it?

There’s a straightforward answer: human connection.

Are you human? Great, then keep reading.

Connection is the backbone of a happy life; it’s what helps us thrive, rather than merely survive on this planet. To quote the fantastic book, Daring Greatly, “Connection is why we’re here. We are hardwired to connect with others, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering.”

What is the enemy of connection? A lack of communication.

It's as if we’re just leaving the tower of Babel; our communities still struggle with the concept of understanding one another, resulting in cultural, ethnic, and racial divides. The differences in education, thinking, life philosophy, background, and economic status seem to present a gap too significant to bridge.

That is where re:work training comes in. 

We are the bridge builders.

We are the facilitators of open and insightful communication.

We are on a mission to give those who are willing to make real, human connections the confidence they need to cross bridges towards professional opportunities.

When people begin to bridge these gaps together, the relationships create a diverse and successful workspace, a place where brilliant and innovative ideas are born.

Are you ready to re:work the stigmas and really connect? 

Come join our city-wide family, and begin building your bridges. New groups are formed the 1st Saturday of every month; all you have to do is show up! It’ll take some courage and vulnerability, but we can promise it’ll be well worth it. 

“Only when we’re brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” - Daring Greatly, Brene Brown
