Lauren Tenney has deep expertise in transformative learning design, adult development, and the psycho-social dynamics of human systems. Her work focuses on the intersection of psychological maturity (how individuals understand themselves), relational maturity (how people treat each other), and governance (how groups coordinate to enact their purpose). Her big purpose is to inspire others to believe in and pursue a more satisfying humanity, joy and integrity in their working worlds. Lauren has worked almost exclusively in early-stage startups throughout her career, including e-commerce, marketing, and education, before focusing exclusively on transformative learning for leaders and organizations. Lauren is a certified coach (Presence Based Coaching, ICF), a certified Integral Facilitator, and a trained mediator, and she has first-hand experience with multiple distributed leadership methods, including Holacracy, Sociocracy, and Agile. She has trained and coached over 500 facilitative leaders, and designed original training programs for clients ranging from Fortune 500 to small and mid-sized startups. As a passion project, she’s a member of a collaborative leadership and governance team for a small progressive elementary school near her home in Maine. At the end of the day, the first thing Lauren does is put on extremely soft sweat pants and have couch cuddlies with her two small daughters. At the gym, she’s working on being able to finally do a pull-up at the ripe old age of 40 (yeah!).
