Mike helps clients work through complex problems by finding “rungs on the ladder” toward progress.
Mike Kang brings a mix of technical, social, and organizational expertise to help bridge the gaps between different approaches to effecting change. With his passion for unlocking the potential of human systems to truly reinvent themselves, he creates strong “containers” for transformative discussions in which people feel safe but also challenged to learn and empowered to create.
Through strategic design, storytelling, coaching, and facilitation, Mike builds teams that have the systemic leverage to achieve transformative outcomes. As co-director of Engineers Without Borders Malawi, he led the development of a collaborative network of funders, government departments, and community leaders focused on innovative approaches for sustainable water and sanitation services. From 2013 to 2017, he ran Evolve on Purpose, where he helped design systemic innovations such as Die Brückenbauer, a multi-stakeholder network aimed at addressing the rise of fear-based populism in Germany.
