Why Participate in a Guest SkillClass?
Collaboration>Content. The superpower here is the Collaboration time in small groups. The content stimulates conversation to move us toward stated goals.
- Gain a plan to take action on your most important Goals. In less than an hour, you will participate in a guided process to set a 124Action to overcome an obstacle standing between an important goal and you. A “124Action” represents 1 specific action you can accomplish in the next 24 hours.
- Receive real-time feedback from other leaders. Collaborate with others in a small group. Give and receive valuable insights, resources and experiences relevant to your 124Action.
- You’ll build relationships. In SkillClass, you’ll meet other growth-minded Christian business leaders. Working together is one of the best ways to build rapport and trust for future opportunities while expanding and diversifying your circle of colleagues.

Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
Date: Wednesday, Feb 3, 10–11 AM Eastern Time on Zoom. Registration is free but required to gain access to the live Zoom link.
Brené Brown has written a refreshing take on modern courage, vulnerability, and personal effectiveness. She starts off her book Daring Greatly with the following quote from Theodore Roosevelt:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Charter memberships are just $199 per month.
“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.Hebrews 12:1b-2 (NIV)

Why I Started the Lead As A Christian Collaborative
Before February 14, 1986, I was all business. Since I was nine years old, I’ve been involved in some making-money venture. Coupling my entrepreneurial streak with graduate and undergraduate degrees in business, I was truly all-in for anything legal to do with making money.
On Valentine’s Day in 1986 at a Cursillo Weekend in Oviedo, Florida, Jesus blessedly went from my head to heart. Shortly thereafter, I asked the question: “How do I integrate my faith and my business and excel at both?”
Since asking that question, my life’s work has been in answering that question and providing guidance to those on the same journey of excellence. I’ve written international best-selling books, spoken from Hungary to Hawaii professing purpose. I’ve consulted and coached CEOs and Presidents of multi-nationals and start-ups — while being true to my faith and best business practices.
On May 9, 1990, I launched my first On-Purpose® program for a convention of real estate brokers. Today, it is a fully integrated approach to leading one’s life and work with one’s identity in Christ at the center but not having to wear it on your sleeve. I’ve served as the volunteer Chairman of the Board of Lifework Leadership and the Central Florida Christian Chamber of Commerce.
Where On-Purpose is essential and deep in scope, the Lead As A Christian Collaborative meets a broad variety of symptomatic off-purpose challenges faced by those of us who lead teams of people. Sometimes we just need to fix the problem before us with greater insight and move on to the next one. The Collaborative provides just the right measure of insight to make a more informed and better decision while keeping momentum moving forward. Perhaps, more importantly, the Collaborative provides steady nourishment to build core competency in a variety of skills necessary to lead as a Christian in an increasingly secular and punishing marketplace.
Christ’s victory is our victory, provided we tap into the wisdom of the ages and apply it to our life and work today. Here we search for pearls of wisdom from secular and Christian writers alike. And we do this on-purpose!
