What is needed to inspire learning and development that is truly transformational and lasting? This was the question asked and answered in the creation of the Personal Excellence Program (PEP), first inside Genentech's IT department and now spreading within the company and beyond. This is the surprising story of what happened by radically rethinking an organization's responsibility to its people and creating a genuine culture of human development.
Last year, I moved from New York to Rio de Janeiro, where Purpose has opened its first overseas office. I have met with local innovators and interacted with all kinds of people on the streets, at the beach, and in botequins (informal bars).
To respond to the conditions of life is one of the fundamental capacities of the universe, Swimme tells us. To be human means we have a deep capacity to care and act responsibly about the future. As the dynamics of life on the planet change, from the genetically determined to the cultural, our decisions have the power to alter life on the planet. The most responsible decision we can make will be one that maintains the conditions of life and makes the earth blossom for millions of more years. With Cosmologist Brian Swimme.

The majority of our society has been facing severe economic hardships since 2008, with Generation Y being at the forefront. According to the U.S. Census bureau, nearly 50% of Americans 16-29 are unemployed. Furthermore, outstanding student loan debt is expected to reach $1 Trillion in 2012. Our future generations are facing hard times as well with 1 in 5 children in America living in poverty.
In response to this crisis, our youth-driven, idea incubator co-op, The Illuminated Ventures Project (IllVP), has created The Build a New Economy campaign. The goal is to mobilize Generation Y and other concerned citizens to self-organize a sustainable economy and planet.

We connect people who want to create a financial system that sustains people and planet.
We do this because we think we have to tackle the financial system as a whole, and that we are all either a part of it, or excluded from it. Therefore, we think it’s important to work with a diverse group of people – that if we put the same people in a room who created the existing system and ask them to innovate, we might not come out with very innovative solutions.
We believe that no single institution, no one sector of society, no exclusive group of people can address the challenges we face today and we are committed to collaboration.
The old model was to make tons of money and then give back (see Bill Gates). The new model is to build a company that gives back as it makes money. How can the old guard and the new guard work together for maximum impact? We are at the start of a journey. But there is a new breed of entrepreneur who is accelerating the speed of this journey and leading us down an exciting new path for business.

This Rebels at Work community is for corporate rebels to share experiences, insights and advice with other rebels and aspiring rebels.

The hope is that rebels can find courage and ideas to be more successful, and executives can see why their success depends on encouraging rebels.
