Welcome! I’m Joe Weston and I’m excited to share with you the international work that I do through my company, the Weston Network, and my nonprofit, Fierce Civility Project. Our mission is to empower individuals, communities and organizations to seek higher solutions to any issue or situation that perpetuates opposition, polarization, burnout  and the outworn “win-lose” mode of thinking. 

Recognizing that one model or system couldn’t possibly meet the needs of every individual, organization or community, I’ve dedicated 30+ years to developing and road-testing a variety of powerful tools, practices, philosophies and techniques that help break down and dissolve the internal, interpersonal and societal barriers that prevent us from:

  • embodying personal authentic power and resilience.
  • creating efficient, thriving work cultures based on mutual empowerment.
  •  setting the necessary groundwork for the emergence of new, inclusive and innovative solutions to some of our more intractable societal problems.

What makes our offerings stand out across so many sectors and cultures around the world is
the human-centered  approach that we take, which blends innovative and easy-to-apply theories in the realms of communication, leadership and basic neuroscience with somatic practices that are both cutting-edge and timeless. 

"Weston’s 'skills of the heart' can turn our ideas into action at a time when our future depends on our willingness to come together to resolve our current existential crises.”
