The Wright Foundation for the Realization of Human Potential is a 501(c)3 non-profit. We focus on using cutting-edge social and emotional intelligence to activate leaders who help contribute to a 200-year vision of a world that works for everyone.

The foundation includes:
The Wright Graduate University for the Realization of Human Potential (WGU),, which offers M.A. and Ed.D. degrees, plus graduate certificate programs in social and emotional intelligence, transformational leadership and transformational coaching. WGU provides a performative learning environment and synthesizes the best theories and methodologies related to the enhancement of human potential—ancient Greek philosophy to modern-day existential philosophy; developmental, Adlerian, humanistic and positive psychology; educational theories from Dewey to Vygotsky to Mezirow; current research in neuroscience, and behavioral economics.

Wright Foundation:, the overarching organization which includes the non-credit division of the foundation where clients engage in applied coaching and coursework in social and emotional intelligence to leap ahead in their careers and lives so that they can make a positive contribution in their sphere of influence whether that sphere is a corporation, a family, a community, or society at large. The unique yearning-based learning approach applies both traditional and cutting-edge human emergence technologies to leadership, career, personal development, relationships and parenting, and more. Rather than limiting expertise to one static discipline, the Wright Foundation continually synthesizes the latest in training and research along with past technologies and distills it for students into a pragmatic step-by-step system, called The Assignment Way of Living, that students can easily apply moment-by-moment in their careers, relationships, and lives. Our focus is on leadership from the inside out which embraces the whole individual and is applicable for any individual just beginning in their career to very advanced.

The core programs in this division include:
• The Year of Transformation
• Transformation Lab
• Leadership Intensive
• Electives include: sales, entrepreneurs, relationships, parenting, women’s
leadership, men’s leadership, and more.

The Human Emergence group: Our business division brings our innovative curriculum into companies and organizations to empower individuals to be changemakers where they are, to take responsibility for their leadership, and to have a positive impact in their organization no matter what their role or level. Offerings from this division include workshops and training in social and emotional intelligence, executive or professional coaching, consulting, and more.
