The Pursuit of Higher Ground

By Rigel Thurston

During our June gathering this coming Thursday, June 13, Rand Stagen will reveal why the root cause driving America apart today is not about race, class, or politics – it’s about worldviews. Attendees will be invited to map the three largest worldviews (sub-cultures) into “camps” and discover the power of the emerging field of what Steve McIntosh calls Cultural Intelligence. Drawing upon the wisdom of the Stoics (which invites us to recognize that “what’s IN the way IS the way.”), Rand will reveal the rich opportunity of this cultural moment. Rather than viewing hyper-polarization as an obstacle, attendees will be exposed to leadership principles for moving beyond common ground…in the pursuit of higher ground.

Rand Stagen is the CEO of the Stagen Leadership Academy. Established in 1999, the Academy trains thousands of leaders annually from across North America who are committed to long-term personal development and using their organizational platforms for positive impact. Prior to founding Stagen, Rand was a co-founder and Group Publisher of Presido Media, a publisher of newspapers and magazines across the Southwest.

A passionate advocate for elevating humanity through business, he is a co-founder and current board trustee of the non-profit Conscious Capitalism. Rand is also on the board of the Institute for Cultural Evolution. He graduated from Southern Methodist University with a BA in Political Science and lives in Dallas with his wife and two daughters.
