Project Benefits

Awareness

Effective prioritization and consistent progress comes from a clear understanding of what matters to you. Redwood creates an opportunity to precisely articulate your priorities as well as the decisions required to bring them to life.

Connection

Renew your commitment to manage and improve relationships – especially the important or difficult ones. Whether it is nuanced inter-personal relationships with co-workers, or the all-encompassing parent-child team, your Redwood relationship work involves assessment, action and improvement. Teams will be united by championing common goals and building mutual understanding.

Accountability

Redwood will push you to make choices that hold yourself to a higher standard. You will become accountable to the priorities you have announced. Redwood will create a community of people who will champion your accomplishments, and hold you responsible to your commitments.

Resiliency

Not only is it impossible to live a life without setbacks frustration and failure, we wouldn’t want it anyway. Redwood provides tools for you to rebound quickly from setbacks by managing the internal dialogues that play in your head.

Fulfillment

By aligning your values with your actions, you take control of your life with simple but rigorous strategies. This allows you to take ownership of what matters to you and open a world of options.

Engagement

Once you have articulated the personal elements that define you, a customized plan to deploy these elements in targeted, tactical ways is created. Engagement with your own emotions, goals, family, team and objectives is a direct result of this Action Plan.

About Us

Our Story

Scott Malcolm founded Redwood in 2011 after a career at Procter & Gamble and Blackberry. The competiveness and learning of the corporate world thrilled, but he always had been drawn to start his own business in an area in which he could make a big impact. Scott became very interested in character development, and lamented the lack of structured inquires schools and organizations provided in this area. Scott left his job and spent six months researching and building a product specifically. This became the Redwood Project.

We now have a great team and growing list of Redwood advocates with exceptional stories about the impact Redwood has had on their lives. As the organization grows the team is excited to continue to share the experience and push more people to Grow Big.

Redwood drives people to become strong, successful leaders. We do this by sharing a wealth of material proven to increase awareness, resiliency, connection, and engagement. Our workshops will expose people to the building blocks of a fulfilled life by having them articulate the people, passions, and ambitions that matter most. They will then go on to impact the organizations they are a part of in powerful and sustainable ways.
