Hi. My name is Tim, and I develop lifelong leaders.
What’s a lifelong leader?
It’s someone who learns to do what leaders do by thinking the way leaders think.
You learn a lot about leadership as a student leader. The experiences, teachable moments, and mistakes you encounter as a student leader can prepare you for all kinds of leadership opportunities in the future. Over the years, I’ve developed a philosophy of lifelong leadership – leadership you nurture and grow every day of your life.
I tell my students that I created this site so they could come here and drink leadership nitro out of a firehose. There’s resources, tools, and articles here to help you (both student leaders and those who work with them) make the most of this window of opportunity.
My girlfriend, Angie, took this picture. So technically, it’s not a selfie.
Wondering where to start? Start with yourself! Then read this post and then this post. I try to post two or three articles each week on this site. My articles focus on personal growth, leadership development, and productivity. You can receive each post by email by clicking here or add me to your RSS reader by clicking here.
Who is Tim Milburn?
I live in Boise, Idaho – the best kept secret in the United States (so much more than potatoes). I have four kids: boy, girl, boy, girl. They are the best part of my life.
I work at Northwest Nazarene University as the Director of Campus Life. This means I get to continue to go to college but I don’t have to go to class. I spend my days hanging out with exceptional students and creating community.
When I’m not with my own students, I spend time with other people’s students. I get to train student leaders at a variety of conferences, retreats, and workshops. I love speaking at summer camps, talking to students about faith and their own formation. If you’re interested in having me speak to your students, visit my speaking page.
I wrote my first online leadership article on January 12, 2005. Since that time I’ve produced a lot of different resources. If you’d like to take a look at my books, ebooks, or leadership tools, visit my resources page.
I’m a Mac addict. I’m a P90X and P90X2 grad. I dabble in graphic design. Cut me and I’ll bleed Starbucks. And more than anything else, I love a good story.
There are a lot of different ways to get ahold of me. I list most of them on my contact page.
If you are a student leader or you advise student leaders, send me an email. Tell me what your greatest obstacle is in leadership development. I look forward to the conversation.
