It's time for us to transform our world. To help more people start living in the NOW Age. And to do so with integrity.
As business leaders, we must take ownership of the state of our collective consciousness and the planet. For our own sake and that of all the coming generations. The Native Americans were always right. It's time to wake up and make decisions for the long-term, especially in business since our actions have such vast global reach and can make an incredible impact.
"The Peacemaker taught us about the Seven Generations. He said, when you sit in council for the welfare of the people, you must not think of yourself or of your family, not even of your generation. He said, make your decisions on behalf of the seven generations coming, so that they may enjoy what you have today." ~Chief Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Seneca Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy
ONENESS was created to support honorable businesses that understand the implications of their actions and strive for a triple bottom line. All our work starts with cultivating clarity and harmony from the start. We help organizations and brands build stronger foundations to transform their long-term business strategies and evolve how they communicate, to uplift and awaken humanity.
It all starts with a real partnership with our clients. We then deconstruct the fundamental force that drives their business. We do this by combining perceptive research (qualitative, quantitative) and all sorts of experts. This broad evaluation gives us a comprehensive understanding that informs how we shape organizations that transform culture and the way we live.
Engaging these strategies is what sets us apart. Influenced by the insights our planners illuminate, we create magnetic visual languages and touchpoints that bring our clients to life. Ultimately, our greatest intention rests upon creating visionary experiences that unite us, increase our wellbeing, and help us take better care of our world.
