Badass Engagement

An incubator for business leaders

Badass Engagement is a collective of business leaders and entrepreneurs who are committed to changing the way business gets done. Responding to the zietgiest of our time, we are creating new tools for our businesses — and our personal lives — that are relevant to our times. BE is an incubator for a new way of relating so that a new way of leading can emerge. We are moving forward, not from a place of fear, but rather from a place of valuing and fortifying all of humanity with dignity, respect and love.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
— Buckminster Fuller

How does the incubator work?

We are small groups of up to 15 members who meet regularly to create professional relationships that embody the global connected-ness of us all. We are fostering the emergence our own leadership for a new future.

Meetings are held at the BE Center in West Berkeley, CA

Meetings have fluid leadership. There is a new hierarchy in the way our meetings are run. Each meeting is led by one of the members. Everyone is expected to take turns as facilitator and participant, and we provide support for each member to step fully into their role.

Meetings are intentionally structured. The collectives have a structure that up-levels your business and your life because we hold the trajectory of the group in every moment we spend together. We aren’t here to sell, but to offer solutions to the challenges we all face. We develop relationships with one another, building a community that has your back and is invested in your success.

Meetings provide leadership training. We teach accessible tools to implement into your business strategies and procedures that help you solidify your vision and your team to reach your goals. We support you to be the leader that you truly are!
