A visionary facilitator and coach, Yancy Wright guides organizations to new horizons. For almost two decades, he has been at the forefront of behavior change, aiding leaders and teams in resolving pain points such as communication breakdowns, misaligned values, silos, and resistance to change. His strength lies in championing value-aligned communication and igniting collaboration through authentic emotional intelligence.


Emerging from his own career burnout as a luminary in Seattle's green building industry, Yancy founded Alternavida in 2013. For over a decade, he has curated impactful learning experiences for esteemed organizations like CBRE Real Estate, Blanchard, Money Group, AbbVie, and Dell Children's Hospital Foundation. Yancy's nature-centric team-building approach doesn't just transform mindsets; it empowers executives to lead authentically from the very core of their being.


In 2017, Yancy reached a major milestone by designing and constructing Casa Alternavida, a tropical leadership retreat center transformed from an old, abandoned structure. Nestled between a lush rainforest and a warm ocean, this Puerto Rican sanctuary layers healthy food, quality rest, and nature adventures with personal growth.


Certified in Leadership and Transformation coaching (Hendricks Institute), Resilience coaching (HeartMath Institute), and Forest Therapy (ANFT), Yancy's mastery extends beyond qualifications. His master’s degree in architecture enables him to design unique experiential learning structures tailored precisely to meet clients where they are.


Yancy Wright stands as the transformational catalyst, blending unique expertise, decades of experience, and a commitment to empowering positive change that helps his clients achieve extraordinary outcomes.
