He works together with his team, Architects Of Group Genius, to create the space for communities, organizations, individuals to identify and define their most critical challenges – and to develop new strategies and approaches to confront them, survive, thrive. The purpose of his work is to augment the individual and the collective capacity to deal with complex, systemic, adaptive challenges, and to create the context for people to do their best work and develop themselves as leaders. Maurizio has conceived, designed, led and facilitated over three hundred projects on five continents, for some of the most admired corporations, universities, and not-for-profit organizations in the world.
