Hi! We're Shawn and Gwen 🌻

Six years ago, we hosted dinner parties for strangers to connect. Today, we run a global empathy training company.

Tribeless® works with leaders who have a heart for their people to design fun, practical interventions that make Empathy the lifeblood of their cohort, team, or organization.

It's h̶a̶r̶d̶ heart work. But somebody's gotta do it. ;)

Making empathy practical, tangible and fun 💛

All of our workshops, tools & products are designed with one thing in mind: to turn Empathy into something you can learn, feel, and experience.

Case in point: The Empathy Box© — the facilitation tool we prototyped while hosting our stranger dinner parties.

We wanted to see if you really could put 'empathy' in a box. It took us 3 years and 8 iterations. Today, hundreds of people use it in over 30+ countries.

Let's bring the magic to you 🌟

We're a small team with a big heart, so we only have capacity to take on a handful of clients each quarter.

If you're enjoying this webpage, and think we'd vibe together, we'd love to explore with you!

We want to build a world that Sees The Human First.

Tribeless is not your typical consulting and training company. We don't have a fancy office, or fancy degrees.

We're just two people who fell into this work while we were impossibly young – and continued to do it for the next 7 years, because we care about building a better, more human world.

What keeps us going, you ask? The belief that if everybody understood the power of Empathy, we'd live in a very different world.

We'd know how to reach out. Have hard conversations. Work through conflict. Hold others – (and ourselves) – through our pain.

We all have our shadows. And we all have our light. And it's this mix that makes us irrevocably, painfully, beautifully human. 💛

If our work resonates, we’d love to hear from you! Read our blog, send us an email, or sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter.

Let's create a more empathetic world together – one conversation at a time.
