I debuted my Wind Rose Leadership method at Microsoft's "Public Affairs University" in November 2021. It was the culmination of my own professional insights at the helm of both HRH Media Group LLC, and of the University of Washington's Communication Leadership graduate program (which I co-founded).


Those sixteen tenets for "Real-Time Leadership" represent a creative approach to making sense of forces beyond our control. It's something I've done since I began my professional life: formative years as a real-time storyteller in conflict, disaster and war zones around the world, which earned me Emmy, Telly, Overseas Press Club, and New Orleans International Film Festival awards.


My Wind Rose Studio crafts new narratives that foster trust and persuasion -- a necessary bulwark against the turbulence and confusion of our present moment. I manifest our near-future through streaming media, CEO one-on-ones, strategic visioning, theories of change, and community connectivity in historic places. We move as one. We face the uncertain horizon together. ~ Hanson (bio)
