The Origin Story
The Nebo Company is named after Lake Nebo, a hidden lake in the Adirondack Mountains. In this pristine setting, the company's founder, Kate Ebner, experienced an unforgettable sense of deep connection, creativity, and inner peace as a child. Leaving the lake, she wondered how to hold onto that feeling of inspiration in everyday life. Over time, Kate discovered that most people have a place or memory that inspires deep peace, renewal, and self-confidence. She asked how we can access that inner balance in our busy and demanding lives. How can our 'nebo' experiences continue to ground our leadership, even when we are not at our nebo? How do we carry that feeling with us?
The company considers Nebo as a beautiful metaphor for centered, resilient leadership. We all have a "lake within," a center point where we can access the resources needed to lead with courage, grace, and purpose. The company's coaches guide leaders to navigate their own inner waters to find the source of their highest potential – their nebo. Nebo is at the core of the company's leadership principles and its commitment to sustainability.
