You want to get to know me quickly? Here are some of the things I LOVE:
Jesus, my kids, coffee shops, mountains, oceans, good friends, super hero movies, apple computers, dusk, graphic design, inspiring people from behind a microphone, sudoku, road trips, a good breakfast, the foo fighters, telling a good story, golfing, naps, and learning.
My personal mission in life is to help others move forward and make progress. I do my best work when I'm teaching or training in front of a group. I've invested over 30 years learning how to earn the attention of an audience and deliver in a way that leaves them inspired, as well as informed.
My experience includes working within the walls of the church, the halls of academia and the stalls (cubicles) of the corporate world. In each of those fields, I quickly became a go-to resource for leadership development. I would take a concept and be able to carry it from idea to a finished product. I created books, seminars, curriculum and workshops all centered around helping someone to become a better leader.
In the summer of 2018, I finally made the transition I'd been dreaming about. What once was a side hustle or part of my work for my day job is now something I'm dedicated to full time! I've launched out on my own and created a business called Lifelong Leaders.
What does it mean to be a lifelong leader? A lifelong leader is someone who knows how to navigate toward what's next. I want to help those who are willing, to become better navigators and get greater clarity on what's next – both for themselves and for those around them.
On a personal note, I have four grown kids (adults?). They are the most amazing people I know. Boy, girl, boy, girl. That's two pair. If I had one more, I'd have a full house. #dadhumor
I wrote my first online leadership article on January 12, 2005. I've been blogging and creating resources ever since. With the launch of Lifelong Leaders, my site is a continual work in progress. I'd love for you to join me on this journey. Sign up for my weekly letter! It's my chance to encourage you to be intentional, be brave and be yourself.
I'd be honored to speak at your event. Or maybe you simply want to talk about your own leadership journey. My contact info is below. I also go by "timage" with some of my friends and use that name on certain social media channels as well. Lots of ways to connect with me below.
