130. Bridging Divides: Harnessing Nature’s Wisdom for Global Impact with Tabitha Scott

Today’s guest on the podcast is Tabitha Scott, a Business Futurist and Executive Sustainability Officer for Gilbane, a $7B privately held construction company. Tabitha guides organizations through rapid change using nature’s time-tested patterns to boost growth and adaptability. Her influential voice on the Forbes Business Council in 2023 and her authorship of the Nautilus Award-winning and bestselling book Trust Your Animal Instincts place her at the vanguard of modern innovation. Tabitha’s upcoming book, Powering Change, highlights the predictable and transformational benefits of leveraging human and technology dynamics for greater financial success.

Tabitha’s career highlights include significant contributions at the intersection of business and nature. She served on the Executive Office Roundtable on Climate Change during the Obama Administration and was a delegate representing the built sector for the Presidential Climate Action Plan under the Bush Administration. Additionally, Tabitha received recognition from the White House for her work using AI, smart technology data, and positive behavior change science to help military communities reduce energy costs. Three net zero communities and the world’s largest rooftop solar project were also developed through her leadership over a decade ago.

Today’s episode explores bridging divides and harnessing nature’s wisdom for global impact. Tabitha shares her journey from burnout to empowerment, emphasizing the importance of business and leadership in creating positive change for the world’s future. We explore topics such as the way we, as humans in the modern world, find ourselves disconnected from nature; we consider the impact of technology and social media and the necessity of how we might change the way we live our lives to address climate change and other environmental and global challenges. Join us as we learn from Tabitha’s wisdom and explore an organic path to sustainability and inclusive global impact.

If you’re looking for some help with how to create success for yourself and the planet, then this is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
