Barbara brings an anthropologist’s lens to the world of business. Rather than examining a bottom line or trying to find efficiencies by nit picking a budget, Barbara helps enterprises by listening, asking questions and offering a bigger-picture, systems-minded approach. As an entrepreneur, Barbara knows how to balance purpose with getting the job done. As co-founder of Creative Disruptors, Inc., Barbara works with social, civic, and business entrepreneurs and teams to evaluate their purpose and core competencies, reimagine their potential impact, and build the systems, relationships, and management to execute.
