OUR PASSION FOR DEVELOPING EVERYBODY GOES BEYOND OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

Howard Thurman, the influential author and philosopher, once said, “Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” 

We couldn’t agree more. In fact, this philosophy was what got SVI its start. It was (and is) our deep desire to develop everybody and, in doing so, help them come alive. Staying true to this means we’re always curious and constantly on the lookout for new and relevant trends that impact the workplace. And, when we discover something that can elevate others, we explore it, noodle on it, and share it with others. 

In the past 8 years, SVI’s CEO, Mike Thompson, has written and published three top-selling books on leadership and talent, including: The Organizational Champion:  How to Develop Passionate Change Agents at Every Level (McGraw-Hill, 2009), The Anywhere Leader: How to Lead and Succeed in Any Business Environment (Jossey-Bass, 2011), and Forging Grit: A Story of Leadership Perseverance (Elevate, 2016).

Our world doesn’t sit still – we shouldn’t either.
