A Platform Membership gives you access to continuously updated course content, tools specific to the social impact and purpose-driven business sector, and weekly group coaching and consulting sessions. All accessible through your computer or mobile app.

Follow our pre-programmed learning journeys or join our live sessions where we help you forge your own path, exploring content at your own pace and according to your interests.

"[Soil and Shadow's leadership development work] helped me to look at my capacity with a healthy balance of work, family, and things I love. [Their leadership learning journey] got me to be very, very specific, realizing all I do and being clear about what I can take on and what I can't. Setting some really clear boundaries to guard my time, making sure that my life is rich and full and not just overextended all the time."

Rowen White, Sierra Seeds

Assessments and Learning Journeys

Upon starting your membership, assessment tools provide a baseline understanding of your strengths and growth areas. You'll use these to establish your goals.

From there, you can design your learning journey through our weekly live group coaching and consulting calls or travel established paths through our courses and tools. You assess yourself against your goals each quarter and revise your journey accordingly.

"I have found a different kind of balance and capacity for dealing with challenges by participating in the [Soil and Shadow learning journeys]. I fortified skills I had put on a shelf and forgotten. I can now stand comfortably, shoulders squared, holding my space. This includes scaling my business and interpersonal/ work relationships."
