How do you live passionately and intentionally while navigating the regular challenges of  life, leadership and making a living?  Is that even possible?  YES!  However, most of us never learned such intentional leadership skills at home, in school or in the typical training classes.  And the secret is out… most of us need regular input, encouragement and practical direction to live the purpose-filled lives we know we were born for.  SO FAR, much of the last segment of my life has been about learning how to lean into my own passion of  helping others receive what I didn’t for way too many years,especially in leadership. Practical wisdom and guidance to unlock passion and engage purpose-filled days… One day, one goal, one person, one moment at a time.

Having started and led organizations, written books, coached and consulted with some pretty amazing leaders over the years, I have come to believe that we all need some to be empowered.  No, not every day, but particularly some days.  And those days can make all the difference!  If I had known who to turn to and how to best maximize my gifts when I was in my teens, twenties or even thirties, I think I may have avoided some painful bumps and bruises along the way and succeeded more quickly.  I now get to coach others to get to the summit quicker and with the right resources, tools and people to help them.

All leaders, but particularly young leaders tend to need:

1. Growth Input:  Knowing how to authentically achieve success in personal and professional life on purpose, and not just hope it comes.

2. Clarity: Wise counsel to discover and engage direction that is tailor made… not just what one-size fits all advice.

3. Platform Guidance: The right tools and methods to share the message and build the organization,  team and clientele.

4. Accountability: The right people who create healthy feedback and and positive pressure to set the right goals and persist to achieve them.

This site and it’s resources exist to provide the tools to help and and empower you with all four. And I plan to invite some other friends in to share as well… even some from other parts of the world.

The time is NOW for a new generation of leaders to lead with passion, purpose and persistence. Today’s emerging leaders care more about doing things differently than they do getting by with the status quo. They value creativity, community and courageous living. They seek purposeful endeavors and meaningful impact.  If you resonate with that, you need the kind of education to make you a better leader and make you a better you.  You need those who invest in your growth and in your success.. because when you win, everyone one else wins as well.

So, you are not being selfish or foolish to invest in the education of you and your leadership.   You must gain the clarity and the confidence about WHO you really are and where you are going in the future.  If you are an emerging leader, you need these new forms of personalized education approached that equips you to:

    •  BE who you really are,
    •  DO what you do best
    •  LEAD in the place you were meant lead.

That’s what this site is all about.  I’d be thrilled if you came once in a while, or even signed up and followed it regularly.. commenting along the way.  So, let’s adventure together!
