Are you tired enough to try something that scares you?

I’m here to help you restore the joy to your life and leadership.

Get your life back

If you’re a leader struggling to maintain the balance of your success, your image, and your life – keep reading…

Our vision for the Leadership Institute for Core Development is to give leaders the tools they need to start well, stay well, and finish well.

Somewhere along the way, we adopted paradigms of leadership that taught people image is more important than identity – how we look is more important than who we are. This has left people battling an internal war, wondering if they’ll ever be good enough or if they have what it takes.

Am I enough?

Privately, leaders are burning out, tapping out, and their marriages and families are giving out. Publicly, things look great because they dare not talk about or post anything except what’s “#blessed and #amazing!”

We’ve equipped leaders with skills, but we’ve often neglected the core of “who” they are and so “doing” has become more important than “being.” And it’s killing what would be great leaders.

So, it’s time…

I want to help leaders adopt a paradigm of leadership that’s going to help them start well and stay well so we don’t have to wonder if they’re going to finish well.

I want to help leaders get their life, relationships, and joy back!

A leader’s core is made up of 4 parts:

Spiritual Health

Spiritual Health

How you relate to God

Relationship Health

Relationship Health

How you relate to others

Emotional Health

Emotional Health

How you relate to yourself



Your lens for life

And those 4 parts make up the thrust of our focus at the Leadership Institute.

Join the list

This is for you if…

You’re a Christian leader ready to get your life and joy back!

You’re ready to enjoy a healthy, life-sustaining rhythm in your schedule. You’re ready to have some margin in your calendar to slow down and enjoy what we like to call the “pace of grace” – free of the worry that things will fall apart if you take a step back to care for yourself and loved ones.

This is for your if you’re ready to jump off the ladder of striving, and lead from a place of security and confidence in WHO you are. You know that you have immense value and you get lead from that place, rather than trying to become more valuable.

You’re ready to have intimate, healthy relationships with the people you love. You’re ready for your marriage to thrive and to spend quality time with your children. You’re ready for authentic connection with those around you.

…You can feel that something, somewhere isn’t working. You feel isolated and lonely, scared to share your concerns with others for fear of being rejected because you’re not superman/superwoman. Well, it’s time to kick those fears to the curb.

Join me on this journey! This is for YOU!

This is not for you if…

You’re content running the rat race of life.

You enjoy competing and striving against your peers.

You are fine with an emotionally shallow marriage and disconnection from your kids.

You don’t want to question and challenge your traditions.

You are committed to hiding your brokenness rather than healing from it.

Let's Disrupt the Norm...

Tradition might feel secure and consistentBut does it line up with the truth?You might feel scared to let go of what you've always knownBut there's FREEDOM in grace...Jesus finished the workThere's nothing left to do except receive His grace

Had I not discovered the principles that I now teach in the Leadership Institute, I’d be emotionally empty and spiritually disillusioned.

I spent years fighting for my place on that proverbial ladder of success that I was climbing. It felt intoxicating at first because it numbed the pain of never really feeling like I was enough. It was hard to achieve enough to feel truly valuable or accepted. But I fought for every rung, hoping it would fill the void.

Friends became foes, and I competed with people I could have been in supportive relationships with.

Then, as I went on this journey of developing my core as a person, something incredible happened…

I was introduced to a version of myself that I didn’t know could exist. I discovered that my identity, worth, and value didn’t come from more accolades or another rung on that ladder or the opinions of other people – it came from Christ and Christ alone.

That started a healing process in my life that impacted me spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and had a profound impact my mindset and the way I view the life and what it means to lead.

One of my own breakthrough moments came when I thought to myself, “Why am I fighting for my place on this ladder if I’m already seated with Christ in heavenly places? I mean it doesn’t get any higher than that and according to the Bible, I’m already there. That means I have nothing left to earn or prove!”

And the moment you discover not only who you are, but where you are in Christ, that’s the moment you can climb down off of that ladder because even if you reach the top it still falls incredibly short of where you already are in Christ. So, now I can live and lead FROM a place of purpose rather than for a place of acceptance.
