About US

Who we are

EcoNova is a female founded, boutique leadership innovation consultancy. Our headquarters are in Vancouver, British Columbia.

We create nimble, agile and easy to adopt regenerative leadership development content, programs, playbooks and tools to enhance human capabilities through nature and enable green creative thinking for sustainable and healthy work and living.

Our purpose is to accelerate the adoption of the distributed and regenerative economy by fostering nature positive technology leadership mindsets to build human/nature social capital.

The problem we address: The more high tech we become, the more nature deficit we become.  Nature deficit reduces not only our human potential, health and natural information we receive, but also diminishes appreciation of bio-diversity and desire for stewardship of the natural world.

Current business strategy, leadership innovation approaches and organizational wellbeing models do not address nature deficit nor cultivate nature positive and regenerative skills and mindsets.

Why us? Emerging regenerate business concepts and models are new, complex to learn and navigate, expensive to adopt or scale, or not yet corporate appropriate. We focused our solutions on bridging this gap to accelerate the adoption of regenerative business enterprise and leadership skills.

Our motivation: We help experienced professionals and consultants develop future work leadership competencies and tools to gain competitive advantages in the new disruptive economy markets and industries.

Our point of view is that new professional and business mindsets and practices are more effective to adopt and implement when it is attractive to people’s lives, immediately applicable, meaningful, enjoyable, generate positivity and hope, repair relationships and increase career and financial prosperity.

 

“Higher levels of nature connectedness benefit both people and nature through promoting pro-nature conservation actions, pro-environmental behaviours, and greater mental wellbeing”. Prof Miles Richardson
