Impact with Integrity:
How to Repair the World Without Breaking Yourself
In 2021 and Beyond
even if you feel overworked, overwhelmed, exhausted, and afraid right now
Our course registration period is closed for Spring 2021. Add your name to our waitlist and we'll let you know when the next session is scheduled.
If you’re a front-line supervisor, c-suite executive, or board member of a foundation, nonprofit, or government agency looking to maximize impact without burning out then you already know that something has to change.
Everyone in the Billions Institute community has been working on social change for many years, often decades. We know first-hand the toll of scarcity, overwork, and overwhelm on your work and on your morale, and we've found a better way. We've distilled the approach that took years for us to master into this powerful course. We know you'll see an immediate difference on your ability to have an impact in the world and on your overall well-being.
By the end of this program,
Address and resolve your biggest challenges as a leaderWhether it is micromanagement, scarcity (not enough time and/or money), difficulty making decisions, or a toxic work culture, you will gain the tools, skills, and mindset shifts that you can use to transform these dynamics.
Bring your whole and best self to your work every single dayDo you feel like you have to put on a costume each day you go to work, covering over your true self so you can fit into the demands of your work environment? If yes, we will help you reconnect with your most authentic self and find ways express that, so you can leave the work costume in the closet where it belongs.
Maximize your influence, regardless of how much or how little formal authority you may have.We all know you don't have to be the boss to be a leader. This course will help you make decisions about what you want to change and take steps to do so in a way that is consistent with your values. You will tap into your inherent personal power, no matter your official title.
Free up your creativity so you can have a greater impact on the issues that matter to you.When our brains are in survival mode, they can only do one thing: help us survive. And that's great when survival is at stake. Unfortunately, our brains can be a bit over-vigilant, and the result is we lose access to our creativity and to our ability to form authentic relationships. This course will help you make the shift from surviving to thriving, one choice at a time.
Master the inner work of social change.Your effectiveness as a leader of social change "out there" cannot be done without the work "in here." Let's do that work together.
" I have found it so helpful, it has reignited my love of my work and reminded me to check in with my communication and intentions. The tools are also really useful and I have used some of them with people already to enable them to move forwards. It has been a really uplifting experience."
DEBORAH ONYONS, NHS KERNOW CLINICAL COMMISSIONING GROUP
Thank you SO SO SO SO much for such a life altering experience. I needed this so much! I understand more of my value now and that I am able to walk this earth organically, filled with love rather than as a shapeshifter, adapting myself to other people's comforts.
- Devin Osorio, NYC Salt
A wonderful experience that allowed me to challenge myself in a safe space and grow as a person so that I am better equipped to authentically make and support others to make the changes that we all want to make.
- Helen Smith, NHS Forensic Psychiatrist
"I have found my experiences with the Billions Institute overall to have had an invaluable impact on both my professional acumen, and more importantly on my personal growth and leadership. By learning so much more about myself I am infinitely better equipped to do my best work in community with others."

What’s Inside Impact With Integrity?
Face Your Challenge
Face into the organizational structures and oppressive power dynamics that may be hindering your work. Get really clear on the problem you seek to solve.
- Initial Assessment: First Pass at Identifying Your Challenge
- What Toxic Organizational Dynamics Are You Experiencing?
- What Oppressive Societal Dynamics Are you Experiencing?
Embrace Your Power
We all have agency to make changes, no matter what our circumstances, but to truly embrace our power means making an intentional, conscious, choice to embrace our power. In this module, we explore all the ways we may be unconsciously sabotaging ourselves and reckon with the positional power and societal power we have in this particular situation. Then, from an embodied place of choice, we decide whether or not to move forward.
- How Are You Unconsciously Allowing Your Challenge to Persist?
- Meeting and Interviewing your Personas
- Embracing Your Societal and Positional Power
- Choosing Your Personal Power
Clarify Your Commitment - Part I
Commitment is where we're going, but not without bypassing all the wisdom and truths our bodies are trying to communicate with us. In this module, we will gain skills for tuning into our body intelligence and finding the clarity that comes on the other side of giving ourselves permission to listen to ourselves.
- Giving Yourself Permission to Feel your Feelings
- Befriending Sadness and Letting Go
- Using Anger to Advance Justice
- Moving Through Your Feelings to the Gift of Clarity on the Other Side
Clarify Your Commitment - Part II
Building on the previous module, as we gain clarity on what we really want, we refine that by tuning into our authentic yeses and nos and going through a proven process to clarify our commitment.
- Knowing your Yeses and Your Nos
- From Wanting to Willing to Commitment
Shift The Context - Part I
Now that you know what you are committed to, this is where we move out into our relationships with others and introduce a shift. We slow down in these lessons to ensure that you really know how to shift the context from entitlement to appreciation and from concealing to revealing. These two skills alone have the power to change everything in your life for the better.
- From Entitlement to Appreciation
- From Concealing to Revealing
Shift The Context - Part II
We close our our course by slowing down to master two more shift moves: proactively changing agreements that no longer work for you and stepping more fully into your genius. These are incredibly powerful shift moves and when done well will have a huge impact on your work environment and your personal well-being.
- Proactively Changing Agreements that No Longer Work for You
- Claim Your Genius

I can’t wait to share Impact With Integrity with you
I created this course to give you in six weeks what it took me more than six years to learn integrate into my own practice as a social change leader. Once I start putting the principles that I teach in this course to work in my own life, I found that my work was substantially more effective while at the same time I enjoyed greater peace of mind and well-being than ever before.
If you are engaged in work to make the world a better place, but yearning to be more effective and also to make sure there's room for you in your own life, too, then you've found the right place.
I'm confident that if you do the work, your life will never be the same. And I also understand that doing this inner work is not for everyone. To honor your path and eliminate any risk in taking this leap, I am offering a 14-day money back guarantee. Just show me you've done the work and that it's not working for you, and we will provide a full refund immediately.
This course is near and dear to my heart and I am so happy to share what I've learned with you so that you can put it to work in your own leadership and life right away.
I hope to see you in the course.
Yours in service and solidarity,
