STRATEGICAL TRANSFORMATION

Welcome to 2-THRIVE

Our Story

Our Mission

2-Thrive believes all learners (anyone), given a strategically targeted support plan, can build their intellectual (social-emotional, academic, behavioral, and cultural) capacity to evolve personally, socially, and  professionally.   By focusing on the individual and collective ability to succeed, we can elevate the learning experience for all and forge the productive change needed to achieve and supersede our mission.

Our Vision

Through the lens of equity and social consciousness, we aim to utilize our deep understanding of behavioral science, conflict resolution, trauma-based approach, and technical/adaptive change to support the evolution of the individual, the collective, and/or organization undergoing (or plan to undergo) the growth process of realigning behaviors to meeting and/or surpassing their goal(s). We believe every individual as well as the collective can work towards demonstrating the behaviors needed to achieve their and/or the organization's mission and vision.

Our Strengths

We specialize with intellectual (social-emotional, academic, behavioral, and cultural)capacity building, conflict resolution, trauma based restorative approach, behavioral realignment and adaptive/technical changes. 

We are adroit at using data to create a targeted support plan for individuals and/or organizations undergoing the growth process. 

Through our inquiry-based model, we offer consultation, coaching, and/or workshops series directly aligned to the personal needs of the individual, team, and/or organization.
