      What if we could be challenged in the way we think? The way we believe in ourselves, our strengths, and our future? What if we took time to dream greater dreams for our ourselves, our families, our schools, churches and businesses?

 Challenging the Way We Think

I began coaching and leading 50 years ago. I quickly realized that my passion would lead to unlocking the greatness within audiences of all ages and interests. I have sought and discovered ways to teach, lead and coach within academia, military, business and faith based organizations.

Employing the disciplines of educating, equipping and engaging others, I became a perpetual student. During his incredibly successful and challenging journey, I determined that ’retirement’ was not in the picture and that I would continue to be dedicated to the future and share the multigenerational lessons learned.
