Leaders are those who can navigate through a sea of noise
toward a vision of what’s next.

Nearly 42 million people in the United States voluntarily quit their job in 2018.*

The top three reasons cited were:
 • They weren't personally growing like they wanted
 • They didn't have the autonomy they wanted
 • And they didn't have want to deal with a bad boss anymore

We live in a day and age where people have more options than ever when it comes to work. Because of that, we need leaders, managers and bosses of all shapes and sizes that are equipped with a different approach to meet the needs of those around them. An approach that not only encourages them to stay, but to thrive.

Leadership isn't a fixed set of skills. It's personal. It constantly requires listening and learning. It's understanding what's needed in each context, situation and relationship. It's something that we spend our whole lives developing.

That's why I created Lifelong Leaders. It's a community for those who continually find themselves being called on to navigate through the noise toward a vision of what's next, both personally and professionally. If that sounds like you, you'll fit in nicely. We have a lot to learn from each other. I'd like to invite you to join the community of 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 can help you become a better navigator and get greater clarity on what's next – both for you and for those around you.

Hi! I'm Tim. 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. If I'm in the front of the room, it's pretty much guaranteed that we're going to laugh, inspire each other and leave better than when we came in. I've spent the last 30 years developing and delivering leadership tools, resources and training materials while working within the walls of the church, the halls of academia and the stalls (cubicles) of the corporate world.
