What Others Say

Everything about these few days together felt so intentional - the teaching content, the exercises, the worship and prayer. All of these flowed together powerfully to create a life-changing moment. I’m so glad I’ve started on this journey.
— Matt R.
This is unlike anything you have done or will do. Real and life changing. The coaching comes from leaders with different skills and education, all...[who have] proven themselves to be effective in their field. [I] walk[ed] in a boy and came out a man. Worth every penny, they should charge more.
—Josh A.
The initial meeting felt as if our group was embarking on a daring, bold adventure. How right I was! Revelations made known. Strongholds fell. Camaraderie strengthened. A wonderful initiation into a band of brothers wishing to pursue a deeper Christ-likeness in our families, homes and community.
—Dale A.

 It all started when…

...a multi-millionaire entrepreneur told me, over a decade ago, “Josh, I’d do anything just to have a relationship with my (college-aged) son again.” 

What gets me up in the morning is making sure this doesn’t happen to you.

Since that defining day, the most frequent call I receive is for a leader in crisis, or just burned out. Growing weary of seeing the heartache and ripple effect across families, churches, and organizations, I wanted to turn my focus to seeing leaders thrive.

This vision united me with my friend, Bill Lokey. We decided to lock arms and serve together to strengthen the one thing we're so passionate about--the heart of the leader.

Let’s be honest, your work and life's demands can take a lot out of you. But your family also needs you to show up at home too. Without support or people you can trust, it’s easy to feel alone, especially when you have to deal with so many personalities, opinions, and stressors.

For these reasons, Bill and I joined together with our wives, Laurie and Christi, to create a coaching cohort to help you grow emotionally and spiritually in a safe environment. We want to cordially invite you to The Leader’s Heart. You may have heard of a Mastermind for business leaders. We like to call this a “Masterheart,” because we believe when you guard your heart, your family and life's work become a wellspring of life for generations to come (Prov. 4:23). 

We hope you’ll join us!
