Event Details

We hear time and time again how super busy entrepreneurs and leaders of social enterprises are in managing the day-to-day operations.  There are things that they know they need to do (strategy, planning, etc.) that continue to slide off the radar week after week.  Effective design of operations systems and organization structure fully integrated through the organization from meeting agendas to budgets to time tracking to the file system for documenting processes and procedures frees up time to focus on the important things are necessary for growth.  

LIFT has worked with over 50 social enterprises since 2010 and we want to share some insights in this accessible workshop format so you can leave with:

  • more clarity on the structure and design of your organization
  • roles and responsibilities and accountability systems
  • specific methods to be more efficient in growing your organization that is doing important, valuable work for the benefit of all life

LIFT was founded by two leaders, Shawn Berry and Kevin Bayuk, who, after spending the last decade building innovative strategies for their own businesses and organizations, decided to team up and offer those strategies to businesses that are implementing powerful social and environmental solutions, but lack the organizational strategy to thrive.

LIFT helps company leadership that is too head-down with day-to-day tasks to rise up and focus on structure and strategy, and helps them stick to the paths that will make them more successful and complete. We provide comprehensive organization design, business coaching and project consulting services to lift organizations out of overwhelm and frustration, and into to focus, ease and results.

Recognizing the power of commerce to impact our world, we partner with and support leading businesses in the Next Economy who provide needed goods and services in a way that enhances all life – for us, people and the environment. As we grow into the Next Economy, we share a vision of a world where all human needs are met, where people have more time to play and enjoy each day and where life flourishes in the richness of a stable climate and resilient ecosystems.

LIFT Business Design

sb headshotShawn Berry - Linked InShawn Berry   is an organizational strategist inspired to harness the power of business to create a resilient local economy as a model to be open sourced and scaled globally. Shawn first founded the Woodshanti Cooperative in 1997, then joined in the leadership of the Ananda Dhiira Eco Retreat Center in 1999, and founded the Urban Alliance for Sustainability in 2000. In 2010 he launched LIFT with longtime collaborator Kevin Bayuk, in order to help more amazing enterprises that are all doing some part of making the world a better place.

Shawn is especially gifted at assessing and addressing gaps in the ways in which we organize our businesses and our lives. He has remarkable skills in being able to stay present in the often chaotic environment of leading a business, as he helps clients craft and adapt frameworks and models to enable them to be more efficient and effective. Shawn’s experience with working in democratic, multi-stakeholder work environments enables him to offer invaluable counseling in organizing business structures and communicating effectively with partners, employees and board members.

kb headshotKevin Bayuk's Linked InKevin Bayuk’s roots are in entrepreneurship, having spent nearly a decade starting and growing technology companies, and activating projects and organizations that regenerate healthy ecosystems and socially just and joyful environments. After immersing himself in all aspects of starting and growing companies, Kevin focused his attention on learning about and teaching eco-systemic design. Now Kevin is merging his experience in business with his experience in permaculture to help businesses care for people while enhancing the earth.

Kevin has raised millions of dollars to capitalize business operations, led teams of more than 30 employees, and can speak well to the benefits and pitfalls of raising capital and the many paths of growing a business. He loves spreadsheets and loves to dig into operating models. One investor of Kevin’s last technology company said, “Kevin oozes strategy.”
