Positive Turbulence in Negatively Turbulent Spaces

Pete Engstrom is currently the co-founder and board President of At Home Chesapeake, an innovative not-for-profit program for seniors. They want to create a new social covenant on ageing so that seniors can age in place. At Home Chesapeake is a member of the Village to Village Network, where Peter is an active board member. Prior to this gig, Pete served in the US air force in intelligence, innovation, and international negotiation. He is also a founding leader of AMI. To describe him as a force of nature might be an understatement.

Turbulent Non-Profit, Positive Community

Here we headbang with Mike Moss, Strategy Catalyst for Non-Profits and creator of momentum for positive change. There are few professionals who don’t belong to some not-for-profit association in one way or another. You might belong to a more formal one that is a governing body for you, like the Society for Professional Engineers. Or you might be a member and follow a group in your community like Creative Mornings. Whatever your affiliation, these organizations have a big influence on how we work, how we define success, and how our industry will evolve.
