TRANSFORM WITH PURPOSE, NURTURE SKILLS AND MINDSETS, AND MOBILIZE YOUR EMPLOYEES TO SHAPE YOUR FUTURE
As a leader, you know the key to success and staying relevant is to be purpose-driven – mobilizing employees to drive change and transforming the way you work. Organizations of the future align their values with strategy, are able to recognize and capitalize on opportunities, solve problems quickly, and are committed to creating positive impact.
The DO School supports you on your path towards becoming a purposeful organization. Together, we’ll excite your teams and develop your leaders, intrapreneurs, and rising talent. By collaborating with a global network of experts and innovators, we’ll help you champion co-creation to empower your employees to develop solutions that solve your most pressing challenges, shift mindsets, and build new methods and skills.
BASED ON OUR EXPERIENCE, THESE ARE THE SIX BUILDING BLOCKS FOR CREATING AN EFFECTIVE, FLEXIBLE, AND PURPOSEFUL ORGANIZATION OF DOERS:
CREATE AND ALIGN YOUR PURPOSE
Connecting the “why” behind your organization with the daily “what” and “how” of employees is critical for purposeful organizations.
Start a movement of employees to take responsibility and action – empowering a few to affect many and shape your organization’s future.
WORK AS CO-CREATORS
Give your staff the methods, skills, and tools to co-create effective solutions and develop the most future-proof and customer-relevant results.
Build successful teams by giving them the opportunity to learn and apply new mindsets that prepare them to succeed throughout change and disruption.
Create a networked ecosystem of external and internal diverse resources to access new ideas and ways of working that drive innovation.
ENGAGE YOUR COMMUNITY
Transform staff, customers, and partners into an active and engaged community who champion your work.
Thanks to our years of experience in creating shared purpose, activating employees, and supporting you in co-creating your organization’s future, we know how to get teams to open up and explore new perspectives.

READY TO FUTURE-PROOF YOUR ORGANIZATION?
Choose the right approach for you to empower your team to DO more purposefully:
DRIVE YOUR TRANSFORMATION WITH PURPOSE, NEW METHODS, SKILLS, AND TOOLS.
Using a top-down approach to introduce new values, business strategies, and to spur change rarely creates or inspires effective teams. Instead, leaders need to use mechanisms to involve key stakeholders across the organization early on to create buy-in and foster energy. Doing so is key to success for the business and employees.
By teaming up with the DO School, you can get motivated team members involved in initiatives that impact your people, culture, and business. They will bring an infectious energy to your organization that will inspire more and more teams to work together differently, tackle important issues, and define personal and organizational purpose.
A Co-Creation Team allows you to effectively kick off and implement change. Your team works together with DO School co-creators and relevant experts from our community to continuously ideate and test initiatives – developing crucial skills, mindsets, and attitudes to be rolled out across your organization. By learning new work methods, everyone involved will also become an effective problem solver who drives and spreads entrepreneurial thinking across teams.
Key elements of a Co-Creation Team can include any of the following:
• Boosting the leaders in your organization actively driving change by giving them a dedicated, structured space
• Recreating management meetings into purposeful leadership journeys
• Creating meaningful exchange formats that connect leaders with peers across industries and exciting entrepreneurs
• Integrating and adopting DO School programs to equip your team with the skills and mindsets to lead transformation.
Through co-creation sessions, we bring in input and create exchange between your key employees, DO School experts, and key innovators from our community. To keep you in the loop and engaged on a strategic level, we also regularly host dedicated council sessions with the most important stakeholders. These energetic sessions are a place for exchange where we check in on our progress and make strategic decisions to stay on track.
We’ve joined forces with Fortune 500 companies to co-create a transformation journey for their top management. Get in touch to learn more about how we worked together to create trust and a connection to purpose to prepare them for the future.

DEVELOP LEADERS THROUGH ACTION, NOT THEORY
Current and future intrapreneurs need to embrace change and work across departments to make a true difference on your organization’s business and culture. With the DOers Academy, you empower your teams to transform their mindset and skills with an award-winning leadership development initiative.
During a 6 – 12 month intrapreneurship program, your leaders come together to work on a challenge through in-person workshops, online training, and expert mentoring. The DO School gives them the skills to generate hands-on results and co-create with innovators and customers, helping them become purposeful intrapreneurs that bring back and teach their teams new tools.
Explore our success stories of partnering with Hermes-Otto International (H-OI) and Covestro to promote intrapreneurship and develop leaders that co-create solutions to key company challenges:

HAVE YOUR TEAMS QUICKLY LEARN NEW TOOLS AND MINDSETS
Every successful organization needs people that inspire others to think and work in new ways. DOathons help your team members become these active problem solvers that drive new initiatives. In targeted, 2 – 3 day workshops, the DO School develops your team’s personal and leadership skills to cultivate new mindsets.

EMPOWER & ATTRACT THE NEXT GENERATION OF TALENT
The skills needed by young employees you hire today will change dramatically tomorrow. It so is key to hire for attitude and mindset above skills. But how? We believe the best way is to support young talent to develop individually to so find their place within your organization.
The DO School’s award-winning programs for young adults give you a trusted way to develop leaders within and outside your organization to support your growth. We enable them to learn about themselves, turn ideas into action, and collaborate with diverse teams to use business as a force for good.
Together, we apply the DO School method to give participants the guidance and skills they need to create a bright future for themselves: 95% of participants say they’re more confident and know their next steps after completing the program.
H&M has been partnering with us since 2016 to build a groundbreaking education-to-employment program. The 24You program gives young talents a platform, and, in return, H&M the chance to connect the next generation with their brand on a personal, value-driven level.
