Who We Serve

circleoffriendswebCo-ignite is a living example of a network of collaborative action and learning teams that come together in service of making a difference.  Our members are professionals who are ready to collaborate in order to meet tomorrow's challenges and are ready to learn how to carve out a fulfilling and sustainable life for themselves in a rapidly changing world with an unpredictable future.  They hold the common belief that innovative collaboration through contribution and learning is now essential for our sustainable success and our individual and collective well-being.



Example Members:

  • Baby Boomers who are in or nearing retirement from a career that didn’t allow a full expression of meaning and contribution, and who want to spend their time doing something which does.

  • Gen Y’ers and Millennials who want to figure out what their superpowers are and how to apply them in making a good living.

  • Gen X’ers who want to bring a sense of meaning to work and who want to feel like they are contributing to something larger.

  • Volunteers and employees who are fed up with dysfunctional organizations that use up their energy and passion without giving them enough sense that they are making a meaningful contribution to something larger.

  • People who are looking to work in an alternative kind of organization: one based on respect, integrity, and the co-creation of shared results that reflect multiple bottom lines.

  • People who are in transition and need to make an urgent choice about direction. (E.g. people who have lost their jobs, people who are dealing with chronic illness, people who are dealing with divorce or death.)

While our members arrive looking for different things, they fall mostly into one of the following categories.  Are you one of them looking to find your Tribe dedicated to a purpose larger than yourself?

True Joy in Life

This is the true joy in life –
that being used for a purpose
recognized by yourself
as a mighty one.

That being a force of nature,
instead of a feverish,
selfish little clod
of ailments and grievances
complaining that the world
will not devote itself
to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life
belongs to the whole community
and as long as I live
it is my privilege to do for it
whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up
when I die.
For the harder I work,
the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its own sake.
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch
I've got to hold up for the moment
and I want to make it burn
as brightly as possible
before handing it to
future generations.

George Bernard Shaw
