Our philosophy

Leadership is a verb, not a noun!

Millennials now outnumber Gen X and Baby Boomers in the workplace. And as more and more Baby Boomers retire, Gen X and the Millennial generations will vie for long awaited leadership positions. But, as John Maxwell states, Leadership is a verb, not a noun! Leadership is not a position that you aspire to, but rather a choice that you make about how you will influence others. And it’s a skill that needs to be honed.

Great tool for Youth Pastors, Educators and Leaders of all kinds!

Resisting Regifting

Okay, we’ve probably all re-gifted from time to time. There are some gifts, however, that should never be re-cycled or reconditioned. To do so, would be a grave misuse. Check yourself every now and then to be sure you aren’t throwing away your gifts…

Manipulation or Inspiration – It’s Your Choice!

If you believe as John Maxwell proposes, that leadership is influence, nothing more and nothing less, then we’d have to say that there have been some pretty successful leaders in our day, some of whom have done some pretty horrific things.
