What You Can Be, You Must Be: The Transformational Imperative

What makes a good life? Humankind has been wrestling with this throughout time. For the ancient Greeks, the goal of life was not happiness or contentment. It was flourishing—Eudaimonia—the actualization of our potential. For the existentialists, it was how to live more in the “yes” and less in the “no” of life. Exploring how to transform and become more of who we are.

Why is transformation important? Because neuroscience shows us that not only are we being called to transform, but as human beings, our brains are DESIGNED to transform. To unleash our capacity. To create our lives and fulfill our potential. This is the transformational imperative.

Imagine the possibilities when we embrace the vital truth that we can and must fulfill our potential. That we can think more abundantly as leaders in the nonprofit sector. That we can then empower our clients to do the same for their clients.

To help us do that, Dr. Judith Wright, best-selling author, world-class coach, and co-founder of the Wright Graduate University and the Wright Foundation, will share a six-step process called “Evolating.” The Wright Foundation has shaped this process through 30-plus years of research and teaching. Evolating takes the spirit of the transformational imperative and grounds it in practice to become something tangible and effective. Something that we can use every moment of every day.

No matter where we are in our personal and professional lives, “What You Can Be, You Must Be” will meet us there and lead us forward.


Every Igniting Transformation event attendee will receive a complimentary admission to a weekend training program provided by Wright University. Trainings are offered 5 times per year and attendees can select their preferred weekend.
