Mentor: Natural Educator

We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.
Maria Montessori


An Elder: Inspired Practitioner who serves as a Natural Educator guides the design and development of individual learning and growth, and communities of significance.  They do so by crafting and sharing extraordinary experiences grounded in experience-based educating, reflective practice, and evidence-based learning.

Just as naturally as you breathe, a Natural Educator navigates individual and community conversations and activities while weaving in the words of the participant/s to highlight this truism:

When you listen you learn, where you share you educate

Possibility Exists in Every Handshake as
You Serve as a Natural Educator
~ Dr. Stephen Hobbs

The journey of a Natural Educator is natural. It's not forced - coerced - nor manipulated. 

This journey begins with a "greenscape_map" then a "blueprint_plan".

The Natural Educator can use the concepts (knowledge) and practices (skills) of the "map to plan" to nurture the learners on their eco-creative journey.

And so ... the first Natural Educator approach available to an Elder: Inspired Practitioner is Mentor: Natural Educator.

Client Testimonial for Dr. Stephen Hobbs:

Strategy & Culture - Merger & Acquisition
Over the past eight years Cervus Equipment Corporation has been acquiring business-to-business equipment dealerships growing from fifteen to seventy-two locations across three countries. Each of the business acquired have ranged from one location to as many as twelve locations with up to three hundred and fifty employees.

As can be imagined the integration, aligning of Cultures, Operations and Strategy of these very diverse organizations has been an immense challenge. In the early days our ability to align the organizations was greatly hampered by our lack of experience and confidence in our own organization. We could see as an organization that the longer we struggled with misalignment of Culture’s and Strategies the more we were losing value and over stressing the system.

Upon some serious internal review and soul searching we decided to embark on a journey to build an Acquisition and Integration Model and support practices that would be second to none. Our goal was to create a set of repeatable processes that would support rapid execution of Integration, Cultural Identification and Clarity and development of the New Business Unit Strategy aligned with the Cervus of Tomorrow Vision. If we could accomplish this we would greatly improve the Time to Value on new acquisitions and greatly improve our ability to support rapid growth. Both becoming exceptional competitive advantages and defining core competencies of our team.

We started down this development path in 2011 by documenting all of our current process, reviewing past success and failures and reaching out to find specialized resources and experts. This is when we were introduced to Dr. Stephen Hobbs and the EX2 - TRIPIS Technique and Tools.

Stephen’s program and thinking was the catalyst to the exceptional success we have today. Leading us on a journey, Stephen’s process created a safe environment for the newly acquired team and the Cervus team to discuss the current realities of the culture, the business and the obstacles to reaching the Cervus of Tomorrow Vision. On the Journey we were able to create a set of celebrated mutual cultural attributes, a plan to enhance current successes and improve on the current business challenges. This work resulted in the development of our mutually agreed Five Year Strategy.

In each of the acquisitions where Stephen's TRIPIS program was used we have seen the integration time line significantly reduced along with cultural alignment and financial performance well beyond our expectations. 

Without hesitation I would recommend Dr. Stephen Hobbs as a partner in any Cultural & Strategy work. His effectiveness, thinking, facilitation skills and integrity are exceptional.
