Nature did not design us to live and work alone. This lesson is seen in the herds, flocks, and schools in the natural world. At the human level, the Evolutionary Leaders Circle embodies this fundamental pattern. Through our mutual sharing in the ELC, our hopes have their best chance of being realized in a world in serious need of our vision.
