You could be good today,
but instead you choose tomorrow.

– Marcus Aurelius


Communicator. Learner. funny guy.

Hi! I'm Tim. Throughout my life, I've worked within the walls of the church, the halls of academia and the stalls (cubicles) of the corporate environment. In all of my different roles, I created tools and resources to help people lead themselves (and others) well. I'm the author of five books, including Leadership Starts With You and Leadership Is Not About You.

I live in Idaho. This is a picture of me and all four of my kids. They are my favorite people in the world. I'm so grateful I get to be their dad!

I recently started a company - High Road PEO. If you want to know what a PEO is, click the link. For more details about my professional journey, visit my Linkedin profile.


Here's what you really need to know about me: Leadership saved my life (more than once). It was in the process of learning to lead myself that I discovered how to live a more meaningful life.

I have four values I do my best to intentionally live into every day:

Laughing – bringing joy and humor to people in whatever we're doing.

Creating – designs and experiences that engage people and bring clarity to the ways we relate and work together.

Moving Forward – toward what's next. We don't get better by going backward.

Connecting – and doing what is necessary to feel close to Life, my kids and my friends.
