Bart Foster

Connection. Renewal. Empowerment.

As a business executive, how do you ensure you’re showing up your very best every day? How do you present the real, genuine you at work? And how do you create a culture where your employees can authentically flourish? Being your best means embracing authenticity to feel healthy, grounded, connected—and the path to get there is right outside your front door.

In BusinessOutside, Bart Foster reveals a science-inspired philosophy that reimagines corporate culture by bringing business outdoors, allowing for increased creativity, meaningful connections, and psychological restoration. Through a self-assessment of your personal values and discovery of your Zones of Genius, Bart shows how to rise above societal and outdated corporate norms that hinder growth. You’ll learn the benefits of a natural setting, why feeling personally fulfilled matters in your career, and proven practices that will put you on the path toward an authentic, intentional life. BusinessOutside is your North Star for building connections, navigating a growth mindset, and exploring the value of a life truly well-lived.
