We have been training people how to increase their influence and impact since 2008.  

Using highly interactive trainings, workshops, and coaching we help people build their workplace, home, and community  environments by helping them to discover the most effective way to achieve positive growth.  Achieving team, organizational, family, or personal transformation begins with each person.


Our Mission

Our mission is to help people by equipping, resourcing, and coaching them to achieve their greatest leadership potential.  We do this by preparing them to build others and increase their influence and impact in the process.  Good leadership is positive influence.  Positive influence is based on competence, character, credibility and the ability to develop authentic relationships of respect.  Preparing people to release these attributes for the benefit of all, is our quest.


We Exist Because...

Our goal is to create highly effective leaders, teams, and organizations that have a positive impact on others.

Our approach combines people, team, and organization building leadership strategies based on Christian values.

Our trainings and workshops focus on resourcing and inspiring people to maximize their influence by adding value to others.

Our coaching helps people to discover, believe, and share their gifts and talents at home, in the workplace, and in the community.  Moving forward to achieve greatest individual potential is transformative.



Our Core Values:

  1. Authentic, positive, transparent relationships
  2. High functioning organizations, teams, families, and individuals
  3. People building words, thoughts, behaviors, and products.
  4. Value adding teachings of Jesus Christ.
