We’re all made for relationships and without them life is less meaningful. A hyper focus on facts and tasks without real connections to others makes life and work dry and empty. Doing life and work in the context of healthy relationships is more enjoyable and purposeful.
We have a dream to see tens of thousands of local government leaders equipped to serve each other and their citizens in an exceptional way so, in turn, those in their communities can thrive.
Our purpose is to care for our employees and customers and to use our God-given relational and organization skills to help them grow with life giving principles.
We help local government leaders fulfill purpose and results by helping others become their best, through world-class workshops and learning.
