Mastery isn't achieved alone
Guilds throughout history have succeeded in inspiring their professions through 1:1 mentoring, gathering in workshops, and coaching each other. Rather than investing solely in the tools of the trade, they made deep investments in the practitioners and executors themselves. Ancient guilds produced cultural tour-de-forces like Greek theater. Medieval guilds birthed the first modern universities in Bologna, Oxford, and Paris. And today, modern guilds form around professions as varied as acting, architecture, geology, and art, seeking to accomplish the following:
- Gather the very best to elevate each member,
- Own the full breadth and understanding of the skills of the profession, and,
- Grow the depth and insight of the entire profession.
