Frequently Asked Questions - Hive



What is Hive?

Hive is a global membership community of purpose-driven leaders. Our flagship introductory workshop is the two-day Hive Purpose Workshop (HPW). The purpose of the workshop is to help you get clear on your purpose and plan for the next phase of your life.

What is the Hive mission?

Hive's mission is to "build a network of 1 million purpose-driven leaders." We are working on creating an active community of purpose-driven leaders working together on creating a better world and supporting each other in their lives and careers in each major global city.

Why was Hive created?

The Hive community was founded in 2014 in order to deepen authentic community among leaders who are deeply passionate about creating a better world and communities and wanted to support each other throughout the journey. We hope to create a world filled with emotionally open and heart-centered leaders -- who support each other in building their companies.

Is Hive for me?

Hive is for you if you are a leader who is deeply committed to service and to making a positive impact in the world. We have designed Hive to make you a leader with clarity, connection, and community. At Hive, you will learn from our transformational leadership curriculum, be inspired and moved by leaders like you, build your network across sectors, and reflect on your deeper purpose.

You’ll have the opportunity to gain clarity on your biggest desires and goals, and you’ll learn tools and habits that will help you lead an impactful life personally and professionally. Hive gives you a lifelong network of purpose-driven leaders who will help you achieve your vision.

What happens at Hive?

Hive enables high-impact leaders like you to discover and clarify your purpose through three-day summits and retreats around the world. 

Once you have clarity on your purpose (your personal mission for the next phase of your life), we help you create a detailed execution plan to achieve your purpose and your goals. What we specialize in is helping CEOs and founders discover their purpose and then join or build teams to create solutions to humanity's most pressing challenges in fields like renewable energy, global education, basic needs access, mindfulness and wellness, water, the environment, peace and conflict resolution, refugee settlement, leadership coaching, technology, engineering, design, healthcare, biotechnology, finance, government 2.0, AI, robotics and many more. At the end of Hive, you'll leave with a framed life plan, clear direction, and a community of changemakers in your city and around the world that has your back for life. 

How many people attend each Hive Global Leaders Program?

Hive grew from 32 attendees in January 2014 to 325 attendees in August 2019. Our annual Hive Global Leaders Summit (GLS) usually has around 350 attendees.

What is your refund policy for event tickets?

Hive allows transfers from one scheduled event to another event of the same program content provided that the attendee provide Hive Global with 14 days notice and that event has availability. We do not allow for refunds for any registrations in any circumstance as we invest those funds in advance to produce and execute each event. If inclement weather prevents an attendee from attending an event do to travel disruption, an attendee may work with Hive Global to transfer their registration to another event. However, Hive is not responsible for any associated costs (hotel, etc.) that the registrant may have incurred as a result of their registration with a program. No payments made to Hive can be refunded as those payments are used to pay staff, purchase advance materials, and prepare for each event.

What is Hive's Long Term Vision?

Our vision is a loving, present, and sustainable world in which all people can pursue their dreams. We are here to develop emotionally connected, heart-centered, and present leaders and in so doing help accelerate the evolution of human consciousness. We wish to deepen the interconnection among leaders who care in every major city in the world. We are convening and connecting the leaders who will re-imagine the 21st century. We are pragmatic optimists who believe the future is bright, with many challenges to overcome to get there. We see building Hive as a small part in helping to usher in a world that works for everyone and everything. We’re just a few years into our plan, and we’re excited to have you join us.
